Artist Tom Grennan has announced a set of performance dates as part of Forest Live 2023 - the summer concert series presented by Forestry England.
A spokesperson for the artist said: “Tom Grennan is stepping into an exhilarating new creative chapter in 2023, looking ahead to his forthcoming studio album, ‘What Ifs & Maybes’, and his first headline UK arena and Forest Live tour dates. The chart-topping BRIT Award-nominated star has already had four UK Top 10 singles.
“Two of his platinum-selling anthems ‘Little Bit Of Love’ and ‘By Your Side’ scored in the most played songs of 2021 and his breakthrough UK No 1 album ‘Evering Road’ spent over a year in the charts. This August saw Grennan release another smash hit, writing and collaborating with KSI for ‘Not Over Yet’.”
This success has propelled Tom to an international standing with sold-out tours of North America and Australia and to festival headliners status including Boardmasters, Isle of Wight and a capacity crowd homecoming show for the Bedford-born singer-songwriter.
Forest Live is a major outdoor live music series that aims to introduce forests to new audiences in unique, natural woodland arenas around the country. Over 2 million people have attended a Forest Live gig in the last twenty-two years, enjoying great music and supporting the nation’s forests when buying a ticket.
Going to a concert is said to help Forestry England create beautiful places for people to enjoy, run important conservation projects and keep growing trees. Last year they planted some 6.8 million trees, caring for the nation’s 1,500 woods and forests sustainably and welcoming 363 million visits annually.
Commenting on the dates, Tom Grennan said: “These shows are going to be really special in the forest, will be mad experience for me to perform my songs in such spectacular locations. Can’t wait to see you all in the trees!!!! Let’s get it.”
