Craig David has announced his ‘Following My Intuition’ arena tour, which is set to take place across the UK in Spring 2017.

Craig will begin his tour in Cardiff on March 16 2017, taking in 15 arenas across the country before ending in Dublin on April 7. This is his first arena tour in 15 years.

Speaking of the announcement, Craig said: “I’m beyond excited to announce this tour! It’s been 15 years since I did an arena tour here in the UK and I want to enjoy every single second this time around. I don’t take anything for granted and this tour honestly means the world to me.

“I feel so lucky to be able to travel the UK and perform tracks off my new album as well as some of my classics and to invite everyone to enjoy the TS5 experience too. I have no words for how amazing this year has been for me and I want to thank you all for the incredible love and support you have shown me.  I can’t wait to see you on tour!”
