Live at The Piece Hall 2022 just gets bigger and better – and organisers are delighted to announce Jessie Ware is joining this summer’s sensational line-up of headliners.
The singer-songwriter behind some of the most memorable hits of the last decade heads to the historic Halifax venue on Sunday June 19 for a show in the stunning open-air courtyard.
Tickets go on general sale at 10am on Friday February 11 via ticketmaster.co.uk
Jessie Ware joins Paul Weller, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Paloma Faith, Primal Scream, Nile Rodgers and CHIC, Tom Jones and Tom Grennan among the headliners so far confirmed for the Live at The Piece Hall 2022 concert series.
The Halifax date is part of Jessie’s 2022 tour in support of her brilliant album What’s Your Pleasure? which became her highest charting release to date and reinforced her reputation as one of the strongest vocalists in UK music.
Her Spring/Summer tour includes a number of dates rescheduled from last year together with festival appearances at Parklife, Primavera Sound in Barcelona and Mighty Hoopla in London.
Jessie’s show at The Piece Hall is presented by Cuffe and Taylor and The Piece Hall Trust. Nicky Chance-Thompson DL, CEO of The Piece Hall Trust, said: “I’m thrilled we’ve added another superbly talented female headliner to the line-up for this summer.
“It’s our ambition to bring a rich and diverse range of artists to play here, to enable as many people as possible to have the chance to experience and enjoy live music in our stunning venue.
“Jessie Ware’s combination of soul and pop is truly unique and I know this show will be very special.”
Since breaking through in 2012, Jessie has released four acclaimed studio albums – Devotion (2012), Tough Love (2014), Glasshouse (2017) and What’s Your Pleasure (2020) – all charting in the UK Top 10.
Twice nominated for a Brit Award, Jessie has released a string of hit singles and pop anthems including Meet Me In The Middle, Running, Alone, If You're Never Gonna Move, Say You Love Me, Wildest Moments and Kiss Of Life – her brilliant 2021 collaboration with Kylie.
Away from music, Jessie, together with her mother Lennie, hosts the award-winning podcast Table Manners interviewing famous faces with guests including Ed Sheeran, Dua Lipa, Jade Thirwall and John Legend over dinner at their homes.
