Chart-topping UK singer/songwriter, James Arthur has announced a date in Northampton this summer, headlining ‘A Perfect Day’ concert at Delapré Park on Sunday 16 June 2024.

James Arthur first rose to prominence when he won the ninth series of The X Factor in 2012. He has gone on to accrue a massive haul of hits including ‘Impossible’, ‘You’re Nobody ‘Til Someone Loves You’, ‘Sun Comes Up’, ‘Naked’, ‘Rewrite The Stars’, ‘The Power Of Love’, ‘Lasting Lover’, ‘Train Wreck’ and his global breakthrough track, the seminal single ‘Say You Won't Let Go'.
