The Wanted will perform on July 20, Alfie Boe on July 21 and Steps on July 22.

That will follow sold-out concerts by Madness, Plan B and Will Young.

They have since become one of the country’s biggest pop bands, selling 400,000 copies of their eponymous debut album and second album Battleground has kept up the momentum with a string of hits.

Steps dominated the charts over a five-year period with a run of 14 consecutive top five singles including Heartbeat, Tragedy, Stomp and One For Sorrow, and have recently reunited to bring their hits to audiences around the country once again.

Classically-trained tenor Alfie Boe has become one of the country’s most popular artists, selling out stadiums up and down the land with his powerful performances of timeless classical and proms songs as well as original numbers.
