After wowing crowds at a sold out gig at the Bonus Arena in 2019, X-Factor winner James Arthur will return to Hull next year.
The winner of the 9th series of the TV talent show will perform on the Arena’s stage on 15 March 2022.
Tickets for the standing and seated gig go on sale at 10am on Friday, 17 September.
The 33-year-old, who played in Saturday’s Soccer Aid charity game, shot to fame after winning X-Factor in 2012. 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’.
Over 400,000 visitors have experienced events here at the venue since 2018 including Bob Dylan, Catfish & The Bottlemen, Ne-Yo, Paloma Faith, JLS, Sarah Millican, Blondie, Noel Gallagher and many more. The venue is a state-of-the-art music and events complex with a capacity of up to 4,000 people for concerts and live events, plus an array of bars, lounges, premium seating and hospitality suits including the Connexin Lounge. The venue is purpose built to offer significant flexibility for any conference, exhibition, dinner or event. With 1320 square metres of floor space, making it one of the biggest in the region, the Arena’s flexibility means we can host events of all shapes and sizes – from huge award ceremonies to smaller breakout meetings, including the University of Hull’s graduation ceremonies. The building is owned by Hull City Council and is managed by ASM Global.
