Singer-songwriter John Newman is the first singer to be announced as part of the line-up for this year’s Free Radio Live 2015.
The annual event is taking place on Saturday 28th November this year at Birmingham’s Genting Arena – previously the LG Arena.
The announcement was made just after 8.00am this morning (Monday) on breakfast shows across the Free Radio network. On joining the line-up John Newman said: “Really looking forward to getting back up to Birmingham for Free Radio Live. The crowds there are always incredible so it should be a great night. See you all there!”
Now in its sixth year, multi-artist music event Free Radio Live attracts an audience of around 12,500 listeners. Previous years have seen acts such as Ed Sheeran, Little Mix and Olly Murs take to the stage.
Two thirds of tickets have already been sold. “Tickets for Free Radio Live are in high demand, more so than ever before. With over two thirds being sold before we had even announced our first artist, John Newman, and with more big names to come in the next few days, we expect the remaining tickets to sell very quickly,” said Andy Price, Free Radio’s Marketing Director.
The event also has a new logo to co-inside the rebranding of Free Radio!
