The multi Grammy-nominated Craig David will be performing at Bandai Namco Shanghai Base Dream Hall on February 17 as part of his TS5 Tour. His shows tend to sell out fast, so snag your tickets while you can

Now in its fourth year, TS5 started out as an exclusive pre-party hosted by Craig at his personal penthouse in Miami. Craig’s set combines everything from old school anthems to garage to chart-topping house hits. It's with these parties that TS5 emerged. 

Craig is no stranger to DJ life. Before the success of his solo career, Craig started out as a DJ working the UK club circuit. He then went on to have quite the solo career. The singer, songwriter and rapper has sold a whopping 15 million albums worldwide and his single ‘7 Days’ was in the Top 10 Billboard. It's been 18 years since his debut album, the critically acclaimed Born To Do It, was at No. 1 all over the world, selling 1.5 million copies in the United States alone and spawning Billboard Chart Hits ‘7 Days,’ ‘Fill Me In’ and ‘Walking Away.’ Nearly two decades later and Craig is still going strong.

After a five-year hiatus, he released Following My Intuition in 2016. It stormed straight to the top spot in the UK Official Albums Chart and was in the top 10 chart in over 30 countries. A headline UK arena tour followed and sold out in seconds. With 4.5 million single sales and 290 million single streams in a single year alone – this is the most talked about return to music in decades.

With his single ‘I Know You’ featuring Bastille becoming a top 5 hit in the UK charts and his latest album The Time Is Now reaching No. 2, it's safe to say that Craig is back and better than ever.
