Aberdeen Exhibition and Conference Centre (AECC) are excited to announce that Jessie J will be performing at the AECC Arena on the 15th March 2013.
It’s been another whirlwind of a year so far for Jessie J who takes another step closer to world domination! Jessie has proven she is one of the hottest popstars on the planet right now having hit the #1 spot in 19 countries world-wide; selling 11 million singles and over 2.5 million copies of her multi-platinum debut album ‘Who You Are’. In the UK alone Jessie has sold one million albums and secured two #1 singles with ‘Price Tag’ and ‘Domino’.
In February 2013 Jessie will be taking her phenomenal live show on the road for her first 12-date UK Arena tour. The tour will follow a string of summer festival appearances including Wireless, Radio 1’s Hackney Weekend, Isle of White, Ibiza and Mallorca Live, T in the Park and Capital FM’s Summertime Ball.
Jessie’s latest single ‘Laserlight’ featuring David Guetta, smashed into the Top Ten Chart six weeks ahead of release making it her sixth top ten UK single. She broke UK chart history with the most top ten hits from a single album. Jessie is the first UK solo artist to have achieved this feat, with only Take That’s 2010 album ‘Progress’ and Lady Gaga’s debut album Fame equalling such incredible chart success in the UK.
Next month (June) sees the conclusion of Jessie’s success as a coach on the BBC’s primetime Saturday night talent show The Voice (with the live tour also coming to the AECC Arena on 22nd September 2012). Jessie is also confirmed to take to the stage in Buckingham Palace for the Queen’s Jubilee celebrations alongside music legends Sir Paul McCartney & Sir Elton John.
AECC’s Managing Director, Brian Horsburgh, says: “We are delighted that Jessie J is including an Aberdeen date on her 2013 tour. There has been huge demand to bring her here and it is great for her Scottish fans to get this opportunity to see her live. We have got an exciting line-up forming for 2013, with Ronan Keating, Olly Murs and Eddie Izzard already confirmed for the first half of the year. ”
