Craig David announces UK forest tour dates

Singer's 'Following My Intuition' jaunt continues to grow

Craig David has announced plans to play two shows at UK forests.

The singer has lined up dates at Westonbirt Areboretum on June 18 and Dalby Forest a week later. Tickets are on general sale at 10am this Friday (January 27).

The shows will follow his spring ‘Following My Intuition’ UK and Ireland tour.

Speaking about the forthcoming jaunt David recently told NME: “We can take the pyro, we can take the lasers – I just want it to be about music, man. “The whole thing that allowed this album to do so well as going back and working with young and upcoming producers and let the music do the talking. Curating my TS5 shows to a level that we could play them at Glastonbury and headline Common People festival to 40,000 people in a common I used to walk in as a kid – it’s all down to the kid.

“Drums, acoustic and TS5 all as one will be part of the arena show.”
