Global superstar Craig David announces Colchester performance

Global superstar Craig David and his full live band will perform at Colchester Castle Park, on Sunday 2nd June, bringing an arsenal of hits and his signature dynamic performance to his only full concert in Essex in 2019.

He will be joined by international DJ Sigala, who will be bringing a live full band set, following a smash hit performance from chart-topping artist and songwriter Becky Hill. DJ Nathan Dawe will be getting the crowd into the party mood before the main event.

In the wake of the massive success of his 2018 tour, Colchester has been announced as one of the locations forming part of a limited number of concerts across the UK in the summer of 2019. The tour promises to bring Craig’s warmth and a phenomenal live show including all the hit singles such as 7 Days, Walking Away, When the Bassline Drops, Nothing Like This, Heartline and I Know You.

Speaking on next summer’s tour, Craig David said, “I’m really looking forward to bringing my show and band to Colchester in the summer. It’s going to be a blast; I’ve no doubt my fans will join me in making this a big night.

“I’m a huge fan of Sigala who will be spinning some serious tracks, and Becky Hill has the most incredible voice and amazing hits, so I’m looking forward to having them both as my very special guests.

“DJ and producer Nathan Dawe is on the up – and I am happy to invite him to open. We know the fans in Essex like to PARTY so bring it on, cannot wait to see you all!”

Craig David has reportedly sold 15 million albums worldwide, had many Brit and Grammy nominations and is a multiple Ivor Novello and Mobo Award winner amongst others.

His last two albums were both critically acclaimed and massive hits – with Following My Intuition at Number One and The Time Is Now reaching Number Two.

Sigala is a DJ and record producer who has enjoyed huge chart success internationally, with six singles in the Top 10 UK charts, including the huge number one hit – Easy Love.

Singer-songwriter Becky Hill is known for her soul-stirring, powerful vocals on tracks like False Alarm with Matoma as well as her UK Number One platinum selling single Gecko (Overdrive) with Oliver Heldens and certified Gold top ten hit with Wilkinson on Afterglow.

Cllr. Nick Barlow, Portfolio Holder for Commercial Services at Colchester Council, said: “I am delighted that such a popular artist will be performing in Castle Park in 2019.

“This really demonstrates the continued variety and quality of acts that are choosing to put our town on their tour schedule, following the extremely successful concerts in the park this summer.”

Craig David’s debut album, the critically acclaimed Born To Do It, was at number one eighteen years ago, and he continues to amass fans across the globe.
