Yesterday, James Arthur was on the social media platform again to say: “Buzzing to get back on stage! Where would you like me to come and play? First look at new tour dates coming to mailing list subscribers tomorrow.”

His first single, a cover of Shontelle’s Impossible, debuted at number one in the charts and has since sold 2.5-million copies worldwide. It is the most successful winner’s single in the show’s history.

James has gone on to collaborate with the likes of Emeli Sande and Machine Gun Kelly and performed on some of the biggest stages in the country.

His new tour will be in support of new album It’ll All Make Sense In The End.

Tickets go on general sale at 10am on Friday, September 17 and are available from the Bonus Arena website or via Ticketmaster.
