Craig David

I met this girl on Monday. Took her for a drink on Tuesday. We were singing Auld Lang Syne by Wednesday… Yes, Craig David will ring in the new year on BBC One at the end of this month, performing two sets either side of the fireworks that people are actually hanging around to see.

As is the tradition with the BBC’s special New Year’s Eve broadcasts, David will take to the stage at Central Hall Westminster on 31 Dec to close one year and start another.

“I can’t think of a better way to see in the New Year and new decade than performing and celebrating with you all”, he says. “It’s going to be a night to remember!”

Jan Younghusband, Head Of BBC Music TV Commissioning, adds: “Craig is famous for his blistering live sets, so I’m THRILLED that he will be ringing in New Year by performing live for BBC One viewers”.

Tickets for the show are on sale now. They cost FIFTY FIVE POUNDS (plus an EIGHT POUND TWENTY FIVE PENCE booking fee) and you have to buy your SIX POUND drinks tickets in advance. You’re only allowed two drinks maximum though, so I guess there’s a saving there. Alternatively, you could stay at home and get so drunk on Aldi-bought alcohol that you think you’re there.
