Man of the moment Jake Bugg is returning to the North East.
Fresh from the release of new album Shangri La, he’s announced he will play Newcastle City Hall on February 15.
The record, released last month, follows his debut album, Jake Bugg, and came just over a year since that record went straight to No. 1 – sending him into the record books as the youngest solo male to debut at the top of the charts with a first release.
The debut album is fast-approaching sales of one million worldwide and cemented him as one of the most exciting new talents to emerge in recent years.
After hooking up with legendary producer Rubin, his new album is also set to scale new heights.
On top of the success of his debut, this year saw Jake tour with Noel Gallagher and Snow Patrol in the US.
He drew one of the biggest crowds of the weekend at Glastonbury, as well as at Reading/Leeds Festival, T In The Park and Summer Sonic in Japan.
