Announcing the tour date on social media, Jo said: “I am so excited to be able to come and bring my outdoor live 90s anthem show to Northampton cricket ground.

“Last time I played in Northampton it was absolutely brilliant. It was epic.

“What can you expect? Well you get all the big rave classics, you get the Indie classics, lots of Britpop rivalry, big dance anthems.

“It’s going to be one hell of a party. I’d love you to come along and I will see you down the front.”

The gig is part of the popular DJ’s 2021 tour including venues across the country, including in Birmingham and Sheffield.

The County Ground also has a ‘book with confidence’ clause in place, to reassure concert-goers that ticket money will be refunded if Covid-19 Government restrictions prevent the gig from going ahead.

Early bird tickets are currently on sale for £22.50, as well two hospitality ticket options ranging from £45 to £60.
