Calum Scott is coming to the Bonus Arena

Calum Scott is coming to the Bonus Arena, Hull on Saturday, 8 October for a huge home town show!

Tickets for this all seated show go on sale on Friday at 10am from or via Ticketmaster.

After rising to fame on the 2015 season of Britain’s Got Talent, the Hull musician’s version of Robyn’s “Dancing on My Own” became a hit and earned him a major-label deal in advance of his gold-certified 2018 debut, Only Human. 

Born and brought up in the city of Hull, Scott was originally a drummer before being encouraged to sing by his sister Jade, herself a talented vocalist, who recognized his ability. In 2013 she sneakily entered him into the Star Search competition run by local paper The Hull Daily Mail, which he won. 

In 2015, both Calum and his sister auditioned for Britain’s Got Talent, but Jade was eliminated at the audition stage.

Calum auditioned with a stripped-down, piano-led cover of the Robyn hit “Dancing on My Own,” impressing judge Simon Cowell, who sent him straight through to the semifinals.

With his high, powerful, slightly nasal tenor and boy-next-door good looks, Scott became a fan favourite and swiftly progressed through the show, but he was eliminated in the final after a faltering performance that he later put down to nerves.

Despite failing to win, he had developed enough of a following to be able to quit his job as a recruitment consultant at Hull City Council and forge a career as a live act.

In March 2016, Scott released his version of “Dancing on My Own” as his debut solo single. It was used in an episode of popular TV drama The Vampire Diaries, and went on to sell over 600,000 copies. Later that May, he announced that he had inked a deal with Capitol Records, and in 2018 he released his debut album, Only Human. The set peaked at number four in the U.K.

Calum’s show at the Bonus Arena is all-seated. Under 14s can attend as long as they are accompanied by an adult.

Tickets go on general sale at 10am on Friday.
