Will Young confirms Thetford Forest gig

Pop star Will Young will be coming to Thetford Forest next summer after confirming a tour of Forestry Commission sites across the country.

Hot off the back of a sold-out UK tour, and number one platinum album, the singer has announced a tour of nation's forests in 2012, which will include a concert at High Lodge, near Thetford, on Saturday, June 16.

In the ten years since winning Pop Idol, Will Young has sold over nine million records with a succession of hits including 'Jealousy', 'Leave Right Now', 'Don't Let Me Down / You and I', 'Light My Fire', 'All Time Love', 'Who Am I' and 'Changes'.

This year the release of his fifth studio album, 'Echoes' sees his musical career develop further. The album, produced by Richard X, entered the charts at number one and has sold over 300,000 copies in the UK so far. The first single from the album 'Jealousy' has been a top five chart hit.

Commenting on the tour, Will Young said: 'The forest gigs have a great reputation for their atmosphere so I'm really looking forward to performing my songs in such unique settings.'
