“I can’t wait to bring my band back to the UK for my 2025 Commitment arena tour,” said David of the newly announced dates. “Looking forward to having a party and mixing up the classics and maybe something new…”

The singer first burst onto the scene with his critically acclaimed debut album, ‘Born To Do It’, a genre-defining record that solidified him as a huge name in the UK R&B scene. One of his biggest hits remains as the 1999 track ‘Re-Rewind’, which has gone on to become a UK garage classic.

In the time since the song put him on the map, David has gone on to gather 14 BRIT Award nominations, two Grammy nominations, four MOBO awards, three Ivor Novellos, and collaborate with everyone from Sting to Diplo to KSI.

He also has one of Ibiza’s most long-standing residencies, playing Ibiza Rocks for what will be the seventh year later this summer.

In other Craig David news, earlier this year it was confirmed that the singer – as well as AJ Tracey and Annie Lennox – was among those to have joined the #Justice4Windrush campaign.

The campaign aims to ensure that more of the 15,000 people eligible for compensation after historical wrongful deportation from the UK are able to claim their money.
