George Ezra has announced an arena tour that includes concerts at both Belfast's SSE Arena and the 3Arena in Dublin.

Both gigs will take place in September, with Belfast first on the 28th, followed the next day by Dublin.

The Brit Award-winning, multi-platinum selling musician George Ezra today also released his new single Green Green Grass, the second song to be lifted from his forthcoming new album Gold Rush Kid, due for release on June 10 via Columbia Records.

"I was on holiday in St Lucia with a few friends at Christmas 2018, with two of my closest mates from home," says George, explaining the inspiration for the song.

"I asked a woman what was going on and she told me it was a funeral – for three people. They were celebrating three lives! I thought: that is not how we do this at home. And it’s really beautiful."
