Eden Sessions announce second Jessie J date
Pop superstar Jessie J is to play an extra date at the Eden Sessions this summer following huge demand for her first show.
The singer-songwriter will headline on Saturday July 13, in addition to the sold-out Sunday July 14.
Rita Broe, Eden Project Strategic Marketing Director, said: “We're very excited to have Jessie J playing two headline shows at the Eden Sessions this year. The first gig was incredibly popular and sold out quickly so we're very happy to be able to offer people who missed out a second chance to see Jessie at Eden.
“We’re expecting the second show to be just as popular as the first one so recommend fans book early to secure their tickets. This is set to be one of the biggest weekends of live music in the south west this year!”
The London-born singer is one of the hottest pop stars on the planet right now, having hit the number one spot in 19 countries, selling 16 million singles and more than three million copies of her multi-platinum debut album Who You Are.
In the UK alone she has sold 1.5 million albums and secured two number one singles with Price Tag and Domino.
Not content with dominating the top of the music charts last year, Jessie became a UK best-seller in the literary world with the release of her autobiography Nice to Meet You, which has sold 40,000 copies and hit the number 2 spot on the Sunday Times book chart.
As a fashion icon, Jessie has picked up awards from Glamour magazine and Harpers Bazaar, become the most talked-about star on the red carpet at this year’s GQ Awards, was dressed by Vivienne Westwood for her Olympic closing ceremony performance and graced the covers of Glamour, Cosmopolitan, Grazia and most recently Elle magazine where she unveiled “Jessie the fashion reinvention” to the world.
Jessie J joins Eddie Izzard (June 3), Kaiser Chiefs (June 29), Sigur Ros (June 30) and The xx (July 2) on the Eden bill for 2013.
Tickets to the July 13 Jessie J Eden Session cost £35 plus £5 booking fee and go on sale to Inside Track members today (Monday February 25) and on general sale at 5pm on Monday March 4.
