The shows, at Westonbirt Arboretum on June 17th and Cannock Forest on July 1st, will be held by the Forestry Commission’s Forest Live initiative. Now in their eighteenth season, with previous artists including Paul Weller, Blondie, Massive Attack and Pulp, 2018’s line-up is set to be one of their strongest yet.

Ezra, who made a long-awaited comeback with new single ‘Don’t Matter Now’ in June, has been quietly working on the follow-up to 2014’s incredibly successful Wanted On Voyage.

Other acts confirmed for 2018 Forest Live shows include Kasabian, Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott and The Script.

Tickets for George Ezra’s shows go on sale this Friday (January 12th) at 9am below.
