Jack Savoretti Replaces James Arthur at Stadiwm Zip World

Orchard Entertainment has announced that English singer-songwriter Jack Savoretti is replacing James Arthur as a special guest to Paloma Faith at Stadiwm Zip World, Colwyn Bay on Saturday 14 July 2018. The bill also features Llandudno’s very own Nia Wyn. Tickets are on sale through Ticketmaster.co.uk, in person from Venue Cymru, or by calling the Box Office on 01492 872000.

Jack Savoretti stepped in when James Arthur was forced to withdraw due to unforeseen and unavoidable circumstances, bringing his terrific stage show to north Wales for the first time and will be one of only 2 UK shows scheduled so far! Jack released his fifth studio album Sleep No More in 2016, his most successful yet entering at #6, following the Top 10 success of its predecessor Written in Scars, and went on to support John Legend on his European tour last autumn. When We Were Lovers was the lead single from the album, which also features Deep Waters, Helpless and the title track, Written in Scars, which draws on Savoretti’s rich Italian heritage.

Explaining why he will not be appearing, James Arthur said: “I’m really sorry to say that I’m having to cancel my performance at Stadiwm Zip World in Colwyn Bay on July 14th. I have been asked to be best man at my best friend’s wedding which has all happened really quickly. I hate nothing more than disappointing my fans but I’m sure you can understand that I couldn’t miss my best friend’s wedding. Hope to see you all soon and thank for the continued support.”

Jack Savoretti joins Brit Award winner Paloma Faith at the annual summer show at Colwyn Bay’s Stadiwm Zip World. Paloma is at the top of her game, a double-platinum selling artist who last year released her fourth studio album The Architect which became her first UK #1. The Architect follows the huge success of Paloma’s last album, A Perfect Contradiction which spent 29 weeks in the Top 10 Albums Chart, 66 weeks in the Top 40, and 100 weeks in the Top 200. The epic lead single from the record, Only Love Can Hurt Like This is Paloma’s biggest-seller to date, with over half a million copies sold and 55 million streams on Spotify.

Also supporting is Nia Wyn, who knows Colwyn Bay all too well having grew up in nearby Llandudno. Nia’s talent for raw and powerful storytelling, set within a kind of unorthodox, engrossing vocal with licks of blues and soul, immediately marks her out against the backdrop of emerging young female artists coming out of the UK – conjuring up a very exciting, defiant charisma that’s both tough and warm. Nia has made a big impact in a short amount of time being played-listed on BBC Radio 2’s Blues Playlist, featured with influential Fred Perry Subculture, won funding from BBC Horizons Launchpad and tweeted that she’s been in the studio with the Modfather himself, Paul Weller!
