James Arthur is heading out on tour alongside fellow X Factor star Ella Henderson.
James won The X Factor back in 2012 while Ella finished in sixth place, but was also signed by Simon Cowell's Syco label alongside James.
Now the pair are set for an arena tour together this winter, with Ella supporting James.
Following a brilliant comeback which included a Number 1 single and album, James today announced his first arena tour, kicking off in Leeds on the 16th November 2017.
The 9-date tour includes a show at London’s Wembley and closes in Bournemouth on 30th November. Tickets go on sale this Friday at 9am from www.ticketmaster.co.uk and www.gigsandtours.com and will undoubtedly be a fast sell out if his previous dates are anything to go by.
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.
