James Arthur announces Back From The Edge arena tour

2012 X Factor winner James Arthur is taking his sophomore album on the road for a Back From The Edge arena tour.

As well as appearances at V Festival this summer, plus a headline show at the O2 Academy Sheffield on the 29 May, James Arthur has now confirmed a run of huge arena dates in support of last year’s Back From The Edge. He’ll be bringing fellow X Factor contestant Ella Henderson out with him.

The record follows his 2013 debut, and marks a definitive split from Syco, the label founded by music mogul and X Factor mastermind, Simon Cowell.

To date, Back From The Edge has spawned two hit singles, Say You Won’t Let Go and Safe Inside.
