An extra 1,000 tickets have been released for Craig David's summer gig at Wicksteed Park due to 'phenomenal demand'.

The R&B and garage legend will perform at the Kettering park on August 28, supported by Ella Eyre.

Demand for pre-sale tickets yesterday (Wednesday) crashed the website, with Wicksteed's open air theatre apologising after many excited fans were left stuck in a queue or kicked out when they had tickets in their basket.

"It's clear that people are looking forward to the return of some phenomenal live music.

Mr Penny added: "We are more ready than ever to unleash the ultimate summer party.

"With live music officially back on, what could be better than sizzling performances from the king of garage Craig David and pop queen Ella Eyre lighting up Northamptonshire with their party vibes.

"Attendees can expect a full on carnival atmosphere with the biggest bangers.”

The park's open air theatre will also host a huge comedy day, an 80s in the Park event and UB40 ft Ali Campbell and Astro, who were the latest act announced earlier this week.
