Yet more stars will be heading for Swansea next year as the celebrity running order for our city’s arena starts to take shape.
Latest acts announced include the original pop idol Will Young and celebrity sporting podcast ‘The Good, The Bad and The Rugby’ featuring James Haskell, Mike Tindall and Alex Payne.
The rugby heroes come to Swansea arena on Sunday 15 May 2022.
Then on Thursday 10 November 2022, Will Young performs classics from his 20-year career so far – from Pop Idol through to today, which includes four number one chart-topping albums, two BRIT Awards, four UK number one singles and hits including ‘Leave Right Now’, ‘Evergreen’ and ‘Jealousy’.
These two new dates are on top of a host of household names from the worlds of comedy and music already booked to play at Swansea Arena next year.
Other acts already announced for Swansea Arena include Alice Cooper and The Cult, Rob Brydon, Katherine Ryan, Diversity, Rhod Gilbert and John Bishop.
The announcement of a headline opening music act is also expected in coming months.
The arena, to be run by the Ambassador Theatre Group, is one feature of the £135m Copr Bay phase one district being developed by Swansea Council and advised by development managers RivingtonHark. Other features include a 1.1-acre coastal park, new spaces for leisure and hospitality businesses, new car parking, new homes and the landmark new bridge over Oystermouth Road.
Construction, led by Buckingham Group Contracting Ltd, will be complete later this year, with the arena opening its doors in early 2022.
Tickets for Will Young and for the rugby podcasters go on sale today. Find out more at: https://www.swansea-arena.co.uk/
