JAMES BLUNT + FERRIS & SYLVESTER – 16 JUNE 2018
“I am thrilled to be able to perform at the Royal Hospital Chelsea in West London. It’s where I now call home, and it will be great to be amongst friends and many familiar faces in the crowd.”
James Blunt has been announced as the first artist to perform at the Live At Chelsea Concert Series 2018, kicking the summer off in style in the idyllic grounds of the Royal Hospital Chelsea in West London. Music fans across the capital will for the 4th year turn the grounds into one of the most unique live concert settings.
Folk-Pop duo Ferris & Sylvester will open for James Blunt on Saturday 16th June. The London based act influenced by Simon & Garfunkel, Bob Dylan and Laura Marling, reached Number 1 on the iTunes Singer Songwriter chart and 1 million streams with their most recent release, the ‘Made In Streatham’ EP.
Since emerging with 2005’s Highest Selling UK Album, ‘Back to Bedlam’, bolstered by the incredible success of the single ‘You’re Beautiful’ which went on to become No.1 in several countries worldwide including the UK and USA, Blunt has become one of Britain’s most loved solo artists.
With 4 more albums under his belt, Blunt remains as popular as ever. His most recent album, 2017’s ‘The Afterlove’, features a raft of co-writers including Ed Sheeran on the track ‘Make Me Better’, and saw Blunt add an RnB tinge to his sound, which the Financial Times said ‘attests to Blunt’s musical staying power’.
