James Arthur has announced a new date for the Carlisle show he was forced to cancel last month.

The X Factor star has rescheduled his appearance at The Sands Centre as part of his Up Close and Personal tour to February 25.

The singer-songwriter, who has sold more than 25 million records and racked up over 3 billion streams worldwide, cancelled his performance in the city at the last minute as a result of a virus.

The concert was one of the most eagerly-awaited of the year and tickets sold out within 30 minutes of going on sale.

All tickets remain valid. If anyone cannot make the new date refunds are available from point of purchase.
