John Newman is back in Belfast and he can't wait to play tonight at Tennent's Vital.

Thousands are descending on Tennent's Vital at the Boucher Road playing fields to see Calvin Harris, Ellie Goulding, Disciples and BURNS.

Speaking to the Belfast Telegraph the 25-year-old who has collaborated with the headline act said he can't wait to hear the Belfast crowd.

He said: "Belfast is really good, it's a place I come to not enough and I have been here a few times before.

"I lost my suitcase here and it's good to be back because I have memories here of both good and bad."

He continued: "The Belfast crowds, I just went to watch BURNS it's raining and obviously there is not too much Pyro involved and those guys are going absolutely mental.

"It's an incredible reaction and makes me excited for my set.

"It's incredible and the amazing thing is, people say what's your favourite gig where do you prefer to play, I say every single gig is different, when crowds are singing back it might not be the same song

"It's amazing to have that.

"There is something so special about doing gigs and performances with that interaction."
