Enjoy a night filled with surprises and laughter on Sunday 15 May, 2022, as rugby heroes James Haskell and Mike Tindall, joined by Alex Payne, bring the world's most popular rugby podcast - The Good, The Bad And The Rugby - to Swansea.

Then take a trip through time on November 10, 2022, as Will Young performs classics from his 20-year career so far, which includes four number one chart-topping albums, two BRIT Awards, four UK number one singles and hits including 'Leave Right Now', 'Evergreen' and 'Jealousy'.

These two new dates are on top of a host of household names from the worlds of comedy and music already booked to play at Swansea Arena next year.

The announcement of a headline opening music act is also expected in coming months.

The arena, to be run by the Ambassador Theatre Group, is one feature of the £135m Copr Bay phase one district being developed by Swansea Council and advised by development managers RivingtonHark. Other features include a 1.1-acre coastal park, new spaces for leisure and hospitality businesses, new car parking, new homes and the landmark new bridge over Oystermouth Road.

Construction, led by Buckingham Group Contracting Ltd, will be complete later this year, with the arena opening its doors in early 2022.

Tickets for Will Young and for the rugby podcasters go on sale today. Find out more at:

Other acts already announced for Swansea Arena include Alice Cooper and The Cult, Rob Brydon, Katherine Ryan, Diversity, Rhod Gilbert and John Bishop.
