It has been one of the most talked about and relevant returns to music by an artist in decades. Having sold more than 15 million albums, achieving 16 Top Ten hits and multi-platinum status in more than 20 countries, taking over festival stages around the world, selling out headline tours in seconds, to securing a residency at the iconic Ibiza Rocks Hotel… It’s official, Craig David is back and in a big way!
Ahead of the release of his highly anticipated new album, ‘Following My Intuition’ out 30th September, Craig announces the UK leg of his World Tour and his biggest UK arena tour in 15 years. The ‘Following My Intuition Tour’ will see Craig take to the stage of Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre’s (AECC) GE Oil & Gas Arena on Tuesday 4th April 2017.
Craig says “I’m beyond excited to announce this tour! It’s been 15 years since I did an arena tour here in the UK and I want to enjoy every single second this time around. I don’t take anything for granted and this tour honestly means the world to me. I feel so lucky to be able to travel the UK and perform tracks off my new album as well as some of my classics and to invite everyone to enjoy the TS5 experience too. I have no words for how amazing this year has been for me and I want to thank you all for the incredible love and support you have shown me. I can’t wait to see you on tour!”
Following the success of Craig’s world famous ‘TS5’ shows, demand for an Arena Tour has been higher than ever. ‘TS5’ which started out as an exclusive pre-party in Craig’s Miami penthouse has gone on to become one of the must-see live events of the summer.
21-year old singer-songwriter Lauren Faith will be joining Craig David as his special guest. Lauren worked with Craig on his new album bringing her stunning vocals and co-writing on some of the tracks. Lauren says, “I’m so excited to have been invited to work with Craig on this tour. This is a real game changer for me.”
Senior Sales Manager at AECC, Anna Mackenzie commented, “It has been quite a year for Craig David after pulling in one of the largest crowds at Glastonbury’s Sonic Stage and spending the summer in Ibiza with his residency at Ibiza Rocks Hotel and we are so excited to be hosting him here at AECC for the very first time in April. We are promised Craig’s set will have something for everyone as he takes to the stage with a full band followed by an acoustic set and finishing off with his famous TS5 set, sure to please the Aberdeen crowds!”
