SPECIAL GUEST ELLA HENDERSON
It has been an extraordinary 6 months for James Arthur. After returning with his single Say You Won’t Let Go, James has gone onto achieve multiple #1s, a Platinum selling album, sold out tours and two BRITs Nominations.
Now he returns with the announcement of his first arena tour coming to Echo Arena on 17 November. James wrapped up his last UK tour just last month and it sold out in minutes and earned him rave reviews from fans and critics alike. Excited to hit arenas, James commented: “It is unreal that I’ll be doing my first UK arena tour this November! The last tour was the best experience and now I cannot wait to take it to the next level in arenas. Thanks again for the continued support and can’t wait to see you there”.
Billed as The Comeback of the Year by many, James’s run of success shows no sign of slowing down through 2017. He launches his next single later this month and hits the USA again for performances on The Ellen DeGeneres show and The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon. This Summer, James supports One Republic on their US arena tour, is headlining shows in Europe and Japan and has been confirmed for a number of the UK’s biggest festivals.
James released Say You Won’t Let Go, his first single in over 2 years, in September and it shot straight to #1 on the Official Singles Chart where it stayed for 3 weeks and has gone onto sell over 4 million copies globally and been streamed over 450 million times. The single also topped the UK Airplay Chart and is currently in the Top 10 on the iTunes Chart in the USA. His second album Back From The Edge followed and saw him pick up his first #1 on the Official Albums Chart, going onto achieve Platinum status within just a few months.
