“I have a longstanding connection to Essex… and in particular Chelmsford … my first girlfriend was from Hornchurch… my first manager and mentor was from Chelmsford… my first festival booking after my breakthrough chart success in 2010 was V Festival … my biggest ever crowd at a festival was V Fest 2013 … 90,000. It wasn’t entirely planned but it feels especially romantic that my first show back in the U.K. - post pandemic - is my old stomping ground of Chelmsford. Expect every hit in my catalogue, all the new bangers and bags of energy. See you soon Essex raving crew”
