Craig David Shares Details Of ‘Born To Do It’ Global Livestream Concert
Craig David has announced a global livestream concert to celebrate the 20th anniversary of his smash debut album, Born To Do It.
Released in 2001, Born To Do It remains the fastest selling debut album by a British Male Solo act in UK Chart history and this will be the first time that Craig David’s performed the critically acclaimed album in full, live with full band and in the original running order of the tracklisting. The show will also feature a Classic UK Garage set from DJ Spoony.
Craig says, “This album means the world to me. I wanted to do something to celebrate the 20th anniversary and as touring live isn’t possible, I couldn’t let the anniversary go by without marking it in some way. Sharing this album with you has been one of the highlights of my career and I never thought I would get the opportunity to do the whole album in full like this – It’s going to be really special. Thank you for all the love and support these past 20 years…wow!”
In the 20th year of the release of the album that changed his life, Craig has since catapulted back into the charts and into the nation’s hearts with a string of chart hits and a No 1 album marking the beginning of his triumphant return, which has since seen over 1.5 billion streams on his last two albums Following My Intuition and The Time Is Now, alone. Craig has since leapt from strength to strength on our airwaves, and has been unavoidable on our TV screens and on the live circuit ever since. Craig’s last arena tour sold out in a matter of seconds and received five star reviews and critical acclaim across the board.
As a much loved and respected figure in British music culture, Craig has racked up an astounding 23 UK Top 40 singles, nine UK Top 40 albums, amassed over five billion streams worldwide, sold over 15 million albums globally, achieved 16 Top 10 hits, and has achieved multi-platinum status in more than 20 countries around the world in his career. With two UK No 1 albums under his belt, he has also received multiple BRIT Award and Grammy award nominations, four MOBO Awards, as well as becoming a three times Ivor Novello Award winner.
Demand for Craig David’s live performances is higher than ever following the incredible success of his world famous, critically acclaimed TS5 shows, which started out as the most exclusive pre-party in Miami, hosted in his penthouse home, Tower Suite 5, ‘TS5’ has gone on to become the must-see live event with Craig playing sets at the biggest festivals and clubs around the world.
