James Arthur set for Belfast show on Back From The Edge tour

James Arthur will stop off at Belfast's SSE Arena on his Back From The Edge tour.

He will be joined by special guest Ella Henderson on November 20.

Tickets go on sale on Friday at 9am from Ticketmaster.

In December 2012, James Arthur’s debut single Impossible became the biggest X Factor winner’s song of all time, achieving over three million downloads and staying at No.1 for three weeks.

However, months after his debut single and album was finally usurped from the top spot, the struggles of the limelight became too much for the singer and in his own words, he “cracked”.

Fast forward two years, James is now able to meet the challenges of the spotlight with a good slice of know-how.

He said: “Those two years have benefited me a lot. I’ve used the time well and actively participated in my new album a lot more than I did on the first one.”

That way, James’ reboot draws on the creative collaboration on Back from the Edge.

“There’s a lot of my personality in the album. It’s about love, hope, and the challenge of having your own back. However, this time, I wasn’t only songwriter but co-producer as well, working up to eight hours in the studio every day. I put my own ideas into effect and got involved in great detail.”

Meanwhile special guest Ella Henderson is currently working on her second album. Ella’s Debut album went platinum in first week of the release and reached numbed 1 in the UK album charts in 2014.
