JAMES ARTHUR WILL BE A VERY SPECIAL GUEST TO PALOMA FAITH AT COLWYN BAY
Orchard Entertainment is proud to announce that UK #1 artist James Arthur will support Paloma Faith at Stadiwm Zip World, Colwyn Bay on Saturday 14 July 2018. Also announced to support is Llandudno’s very own Nia Wyn. Tickets are on sale now through Ticketmaster.co.uk, in person from Venue Cymru, or by calling the Box Office on 01492 872000.
James Arthur skyrocketed to fame in 2012 with his double platinum-selling debut single Impossible, going straight to #1 and has sold over 1.4million copies; holding the record for the biggest selling debut single by an X Factor winner. Since then James has released 2 platinum selling albums including 2016’s Back from the Edge which featured the UK #1 single Say You Won’t Let Go which has been streamed over 750 million times on Spotify! To date the Middlesbrough-born singer has sold a mighty 8 million singles, 1.6 million albums and also received multiple award nominations including 2 Brit’s and an American Music Award.
The platinum-selling artist is set to build on a busy 2017 which saw him tour with One Republic across America, complete a massive 11-date headline UK arena tour and even squeeze in time to collaborate with Rudimental - soundtracking the summer with their Top Ten hit Sun Comes Up. In 2018 James shows no signs of slowing down as he continues work on his new album with producers Ryan Tedder (One Republic), Justin Tranter (Justin Bieber’s Sorry, Julia Michaels’ Issues) and Max Martin (The Weekend’s I Can’t Feel my Face, Taylor Swift’s Style).
Also supporting is Nia Wyn, who knows Colwyn Bay all too well having grew up in nearby Llandudno. Nia’s talent for raw and powerful storytelling, set within a kind of unorthodox, engrossing vocal with licks of blues and soul, immediately marks her out against the backdrop of emerging young female artists coming out of the UK – conjuring up a very exciting, defiant charisma that’s both tough and warm. Nia has made a big impact in a short amount of time being played-listed on BBC Radio 2’s Blues Playlist, features with influential Fred Perry Subculture, won funding from BBC Horizons Launchpad and has recently tweeted that she’s been in the studio with the modfather Paul Weller! Nia’s homecoming is definitely not one you’ll want to miss out on.
Both artists join Brit Award winner Paloma Faith at the annual summer show in at Colwyn Bay’s Stadiwm Zip World. The 3x double-platinum selling artist last year released her 4th studio album The Architect and became her first UK #1. The Architect follows the huge success of Paloma’s last album, A Perfect Contradiction, which spent 29 weeks in the Top 10 Albums Chart, 66 weeks in the Top 40, and 100 weeks in the Top 200. The epic lead single from the record, Only Love Can Hurt Like This, is Paloma’s biggest-seller to date, with over half a million copies sold and 55 million streams on Spotify.
