Craig David will perform at Colchester's Castle Park next summer as part of his 2019 mini tour.
Supported by a full live band, the grammy-nominated and Mobo-winning singer will perform on June 2nd, bringing hits such as '7 Days' and 'Nothing Like This' to the town.
The singer said: "I'm really looking forward to bringing my show and band to Colchester in the summer.
"It's going to be a blast, I've no doubt my fans will join me in making this a big night.
"We know the fans in Essex like to party so bring it on, I cannot wait to see you all."
David will be supported by international DJ Sigala, chart-topping artist Becky Hill, and rising DJ Nathan Dawe.
Sigala, who has over 800 million streams on Spotify, collaborated with David on his hit-song Ain't Giving Up, while singer-songwriter Becky Hill is a platinum single-selling artist in her own right.
Craig added: "I'm a huge fan of Sigala who will be spinning some serious tracks, and Becky Hill has the most incredible voice and amazing hits, so I’m looking forward to having them both as my very special guests."

The Borough Council have welcomed the announcement, saying it demonstrates Castle Park can attract high quality acts.
Councillor Nick Barlow, Colchester Borough Council portfolio holder for Commercial Services, said: "I am delighted that such a popular artist will be performing in Castle Park in 2019.
"This really demonstrates the continued variety and quality of acts that are choosing to put our town on their tour schedule, following the extremely successful concerts in the park this summer."
