British star George Ezra announces Forest Live concert dates

George Ezra has announced dates as part of Forest Live, the summer concert series organised by the Forestry Commission.

The British singer-songwriter is one of the biggest selling male artists of the decade.

His latest announcement heralds a big year for Ezra, ahead of the release of his highly anticipated second album, which is due to be released on March 2018. His debut album Wanted On Voyage is certified 4x platinum in the UK, and was amongst the top 10 biggest selling artist albums in this country in both 2014 and 2015, reaching #1 in the Official UK Chart and spending 122 weeks in the chart overall.

In little more than 18 months Ezra went from virtual unknown to one of the international breakthrough artists of recent times: taking in a top 10 album in 10 countries; three sold out UK tours; nominations for four BRITs, one BBC Music Award and an Ivor Novello. 

The music star returned last summer with a new single "Don’t Matter Now" and the sold out, tongue-in-cheek-titled TOP SECRET Tour, and a summer of festival performances at Glastonbury, V Festival, TRNSMT and the Isle of Wight, amongst others. 

Forest Live is a major live music series, managed by the Forestry Commission. Held annually in seven beautiful forest locations across the country, over 1.5 million people have attended a gig in the programme’s seventeen-year history. With everything required for a great night out, including good food and bar, the concerts are renowned for their informal and relaxed atmosphere set to a spectacular forest backdrop. Income generated from ticket sales helps look after the nation’s forests sustainably, for people to enjoy and wildlife to thrive.

The dates are as follows:
George Ezra + Guests
Sunday 17 June: Westonbirt Arboretum, near Tetbury, Glos.
Sunday 1 July: Cannock Chase Forest, near Rugeley, Staffs. 

Tickets £34.50 (plus £3.95 booking fee) available from 9.00am on Friday 12th January from the Forestry Commission box office tel 03000 680400, or buy online at forestry.gov.uk/music
