James Arthur has added a giant homecoming show to his upcoming Bitter Sweet Love world tour.

The former X Factor winner had already sold out a number of massive arena dates and added several more, before now announcing a concert at Middlesborough's Riverside Stadium on Saturday, June 8.

James – a Middlesborough FC fan – will be supported at the show by special guests McFly and Lauran Hibberd.

Tickets for the new date go on sale on Friday, November 10 at 9am from here.

As with the rest of the tour, the show is in support of James's upcoming fifth studio album Bitter Sweet Love, which is released on January 26, 2024. The album is the follow-up to 2021's It'll All Make Sense in the End.

"It's truly unbelievable. I don't think that I can put it into words," said James.

"As someone who came to the Riverside as a young lad with a season ticket and walked through the turnstiles, it's just crazy to think that people are going to be walking through the turnstiles to watch me perform.

"It's very much like the end of a movie, a full circle moment. It has been bit of a pipe dream of mine to play my team's ground; I'm really honoured."
