James Arthur has announced that he will embark on a 14 date UK tour in March in support of his new album, Back From The Edge.
Speaking of the tour, James added "It’s amazing to finally get out there and perform this new album to not only my loyal and patient fanbase, but also hopefully some new fans as well. I promise to bring some serious energy to this stage for you all".
Ahead of these dates, the 2012 X Factor champion also hits the road in December for an intimate tour run, and comes hot on the heels of the release of his second album Back From The Edge. The 13 track (17 deluxe) album is currently sitting at Number One in the Official Album Charts midweeks, fighting off competition from Elvis Presley, Michael Buble and The Courteeners.
Following two years away from the spotlight, James has made a triumphant return to the charts and has now sold more than 700,000 copies of the lead track Say You Won’t Let Go. The single was released in September and quickly shot to the top spot on iTunes and Spotify, followed by the Official Charts where it sat at Number One, for three consecutive weeks. James became the first British lead artist to hold the Number One spot for more than one week this year and was also confirmed as the best selling British singles artist in 2016. The single has also topped the charts in Australia and Ireland and the track has already started to make waves in the US!
