James Arthur has been forced to withdraw from the Access All Eirias concert in Colwyn Bay.

Arthur has been called away to be best man at his best friends wedding and will be replaced by English singer-songwriter Jack Savoretti.

Explaining why he will not be appearing, James Arthur said: “I’m really sorry to say that I’m having to cancel my performance at Stadiwm Zip World in Colwyn Bay on July 14th.

"I have been asked to be best man at my best friend’s wedding which has all happened really quickly. I hate nothing more than disappointing my fans but I’m sure you can understand that I couldn’t miss my best friend’s wedding.

"I hope to see you all soon and thank for the continued support.”

Savoretti will perform alongside Paloma Faith and Llandudno's Nia Wynn at Stadiwm Zip World, Colwyn Bay on July 14.

He released his fifth studio album Sleep No More in 2016, his most successful yet, entering at #6, following the top 10 success of its predecessor Written in Scars. Savoretti also supported John Legend on his European tour last autumn.

When We Were Lovers was the lead single from the album, which also features Deep Waters, Helpless and the title track, Written in Scars, which draws on Savoretti's rich Italian heritage.

He will join Brit Award winner Faith at the annual summer show. She is at the top of her game, a double-platinum selling artist who last year released her fourth studio album The Architect which became her first UK #1.

Also supporting is Nia Wyn, who knows Colwyn Bay all too well having grew up in Llandudno.

Nia’s has a talent for raw and powerful storytelling, set within a kind of unorthodox, engrossing vocal with licks of blues and soul.

This has her labelled as one of the top emerging young female artists coming out of the UK – conjuring up a very exciting, defiant charisma that’s both tough and warm.

Nia has made a big impact in a short amount of time being played-listed on BBC Radio 2’s Blues Playlist.

Featured with Fred Perry Subculture she won funding from BBC Horizons Launchpad.

The July 14 concert is the first in the newly named Stadiwm Zip World, and promoted by two-time UK Regional Promoter of the Year in the UK Live Music Business Awards, Orchard Entertainment, who have brought an array of stars to Colwyn Bay over the past seven years.
