Craig David to perform in Cheltenham next May

Where: Jonny-Rocks Stadium, Cheltenham

Where: Friday, May 24, 2019

Superstar Craig David and his full live band are set to perform at Jonny-Rocks Stadium, Cheltenham, on Friday, May 24.

Craig is set to bring an arsenal of hits and his signature dynamic performance to his only full concert in Gloucestershire in 2019.

He will be joined by international DJ Sigala, who will be bringing a full live band set, following a smash hit performance from chart-topping artist and songwriter Becky Hill. And getting the crowd into the party will be the rising star DJ Nathan Dawe.

In the wake of massive success of his 2018 tour, Cheltenham will form part of a limited number of concerts across the UK in the summer of 2019, bringing Craig's warmth and a phenomenal live show that includes all the hit singles such as 7 Days, Walking Away, When the Bassline Drops, Nothing Like This, Heartline and I Know You.

Craig said: "I'm really looking forward to bringing my show and band to Cheltenham in the summer. It's going to be a blast; I've no doubt my fans will join me in making this a big night.

"I'm a huge fan of Sigala who will be spinning some serious tracks, and Becky Hill has the most incredible voice and amazing hits, so I'm looking forward to having them both as my very special guests.

"DJ and producer Nathan Dawe is on the up - and I am happy to invite him to open. We know the fans in Gloucestershire like to party so bring it on, cannot wait to see you all!"

Craig David has sold 15 million albums worldwide, has had many Brit and Grammy nominations and is a multiple Ivor Novello and Mobo Award winner amongst others.

His last two albums were both critically acclaimed and massive hits - with Following My Intuition at Number One and The Time Is Now reaching Number Two.

It is 18 years since his debut album, the critically acclaimed Born To Do It, was at Number One, and he continues to amass fans across the globe.

Sigala is a DJ and record producer who has enjoyed huge chart success internationally, with six singles in the Top 10 UK charts, including the huge Number One hit Easy Love.

Singer-songwriter Becky Hill is known for her soul-stirring, powerful vocals on tracks like False Alarm with Matoma as well as her UK Number One platinum selling single Gecko (Overdrive) with Oliver Heldens and certified Gold top ten hit with Wilkinson on Afterglow.

Multi-genre DJ and producer Nathan Dawe has had an incredibly impressive 2018, with sold out December shows in Birmingham and London, succeeding his fully packed summer which included his yearly residencies in Zante and Ayia Napa.

Tickets for the gig go on general sale on Friday (November 30) at 9am.
