In May and June 2018 he will appear at Wembley twice and also visit Scotland's national football stadium, Hampden Park in Glasgow.

The remaining dates on the six-concert tour are Newcastle United's St James's Park ground, Manchester City's Etihad Stadium and Cardiff's Principality Stadium.

All of the venues have a much higher capacity than Leeds United's Elland Road ground and Sheffield's two football stadiums.
