Jess Glynne set for Ricoh appearance

British pop songstress Jess Glynne has announced a one-off show at the Ricoh Arena.

Glynne, who sang number one hits Rather Be for Clean Bandit and My Love for Route 94, was up for British Female Solo Artist at last month’s Brit Awards.

She will do a warm-up gig at the Ricoh’s Jaguar Hall on 29th April, and only 3,500 tickets will go on sale. Glynne was forced to cancel her performance at Coventry’s Kasbah nightclub last July for medical reasons – so this will be the first time she has performed in the city.

The London-born singer was the second British female artist, after Cheryl Cole, to achieve five number one songs – Not Letting Go with Tinie Tempah, as well as her own songs Hold My Hand and Don’t Be So Hard On Yourself.

She released her debut album I Cry When I Laugh last year, and performed a medley of some of her hottest hits at the Brits. It was also announced this morning that she will appear at Wireless Festival in Finsbury Park, London, this July.

The Ricoh Arena is also set to host MTV Crashes and Mela this summer, as well as headline shows from Rihanna and Bruce Springsteen.

Tickets to see Jess Glynne will be £22 and go on sale on Friday at 9am.
