“I’m really looking forward to playing at Forest Live, there’s always something special about playing outside in the English summer.” David said in a statement.
Forest Live is an independent programme organised by the Forestry Commission to bring forests to new audiences.
Income generated from ticket sales is spent on protecting, improving and expanding England’s forests and woodlands and increasing their value to people and wildlife.
Speaking to NME about his forthcoming tour Craig said “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.”
2016 was a hugely successful year for the Craig David.
After a six year absence from the music scene, David released his sixth studio album Following My Intuition, which went to number 1 in the UK.
