JESSIE J is the latest big name act announced to appear at Bridlington Spa.

The award-winning singer has announced the venue as part of her 2011 UK tour.

The chart-topping sensation, whose songs include ‘Do it Like a Dude’, ‘Price Tag’ and her latest hit ‘Nobody’s Perfect’, will be performing on Wednesday 26 October, with doors opening at 7pm.

Jessie attended the renowned BRIT School, which has produced other notable female artists such as Amy Winehouse, Adele and Katie Melua.

The London-born artist first found fame by writing songs for American stars such as Miley Cyrus and Chris Brown, before her own critical and commercial success follwed.

The 24-year-old, who was the 2011 Critics Choice at the Brit Awards, is the latest high-profile star to play at the Spa.

It rounds off a packed October for the Spa, as the venue will also play host to TV star Jane McDonald, comedy favourite Jason Manford and entertainer John Barrowman.

The start of 2012 is already shaping up nicely for the Spa, after recent announcements of well-known comedians Omid Djalili, who will arrive in February, and Sarah Millican in April, both of whom are well known to television audiences nationwide.

Councillor Jane Evison, cabinet portfolio holder for rural issues and cultural services at East Riding of Yorkshire Council, believes the appearance of Jessie J represents how highly the venue is rated and that it will be a great evening for fans.

She said: “I am absolutely delighted with the announcement that Jessie J, who is such an exciting young act, will be performing at The Spa.

“I know a lot of people will be desperate to see her perform and I hope everyone who manages to get a ticket for Jessie’s gig has a magical night.”

Tickets are priced at £23.50 plus a booking fee of £2.50 and will be on sale tomorrow, Friday June 3, from 9am.
