Will Young and James Morrison have announced co-headlining dates at six Forest Live 2020 concerts.


The special gigs will see both BRIT Award-winning artists perform individual sets that bring together their greatest hits and material from their latest albums - Will’s Lexicon and James’ You’re Stronger Than You Know.

Forest Live is an outdoor music series held every year by Forestry England with the aim of introducing forests to new audiences in unique, natural woodland arenas around the country.


Over 1.9 million people have attended a Forest Live concert in the last 19 years. With everything needed for a great night out, including good food & drink, the concerts are well known for their informal and relaxed atmosphere - and, of course, for their spectacular forest backdrop.

Going to a Forest Live concert helps look after the nation’s forests sustainably, with income from ticket sales helping to create beautiful places for people to enjoy and allowing wildlife to flourish and trees to grow.
 
Commenting on the tour, Will said: “Both James and I have fond memories of appearing as part of Forest Live as solo artists in the past. We love the work Forestry England does, so we're glad to be back again in what promises to be a fantastic double-header of a show.”
 
James said: “For the last 20 years Will has been at the forefront of British popular culture. That’s a massive achievement. I think our sets will complement each other in a special way, and I’m really looking forward to our shows together. It’ll be a great night out!”

Friday 12 June: Westonbirt Arboretum, near Tetbury, Glos.
Sunday 14 June: Bedgebury Pinetum, near Tunbridge Wells, Kent.
Friday 19 June: Thetford Forest, near Brandon, Suffolk.
Sunday 21 June: Cannock Chase Forest, near Rugeley, Staffs.
Saturday 27 June: Dalby Forest, near Pickering, North Yorkshire.
