Craig David returning to Southampton in October

Craig David returning to Southampton in October

by Sally Churchward.

Southampton’s favourite son, Craig David, will be returning to his home city next month for an intimate gig at the city’s 1885 club.

The singer, whose hits include Seven Days, DNA, Rise & Fall and many more, will be coming to the city in association with Vinilo Record Store, to promote his new album, 22, which comes out on September 30.

Craig David grew up on Southampton’s Holyrood Estate and has come back to the city on a number of occasions since, always causing a huge sensation when he does.

Tickets for the 1865 event, which takes place on October 1, go on sale today (September 17) at 11am., via the Vinilo website (click here).

They’re likely to sell out quickly.

Craig, who has been awarded an MBE, shot to fame in 1999 thanks to his Artful Dodger collaboration Re-Rewind. Since then, he’s clocked up 20 top 40 singles and seven top 40 albums. He’s been nominated for an impressive 14 Brit awards and two Grammy Awards.

Tickets are available in bundles with Craig’s new CD, 22, priced £16 for one ticket and CD.


UPDATE 21/9/22: Craig David will also be signing copies of his new book, What’s Your Vibe, at Southampton Waterstones earlier in the day on October 1. Tickets are £20 and include the cost of the book. For more information and to book, click here.
