Atlanta born singer songwriter CeeLo Green is set to perform an intimate gig at Lowther Pavilion in a Lytham Festival Presents special.

The gig will be one of only four UK dates and the only one in the North of England in 2016.

Green, whose award winning musical career has spanned almost two decades and includes the hits Crazy, Forget You and Bright Lights Bigger City will play a special one-off concert at Lowther Pavilion on Tuesday May 31.

Tickets to see CeeLo Green at Lytham’s Lowther Pavilion go on sale on Monday and are available from www.lythamfestival.com or direct from the Box Office at Lowther Pavilion.

CeeLo shot to fame as one half of duo Gnarls Barkley with their global 2006 hit Crazy, which spent seven weeks at the number one spot of the UK download chart following its release.

In 2010, Green – real name Thomas DeCarlo Callaway – released his solo track Forget You which shot to the UK number one spot once again with huge popularity across Europe.

In 2015 he received the outstanding achievement prize at the MOBO awards and released his fifth studio album Heart Blanche ahead of his 2016 tour.

His concert in Lytham is being presented by Lytham Festival organisers and promoters Cuffe and Taylor as part of the week-long festival this summer.

Director Peter Taylor said: “We’re thrilled to present CeeLo Green to give people a taste of what is in store at Lytham Festival this year

“To be able to bring a soul and funk icon to Lytham is a fantastic achievement and the fact that this is his only date in the North just makes it that little bit more special.

“We’re sure that fans of CeeLo will be delighted to see him in the intimacy of Lowther Pavilion with less than 1,000 tickets available for this exclusive one-off show.

“This show is an ideal chance to get a sense of what the festival is all about, bringing top quality performers to Lytham.

“CeeLo is an exceptional performer with a string of fantastic hits which will have the Pavilion bouncing ahead of the festival.”

Tickets to see CeeLo Green at Lowther Pavilion are priced from £42.50 and are available from www.lythamfestival.com or direct from the Box Office at Lowther Pavilion. A number of meet and greet tickets are also available.
