Gavin James has spent the last few months traipsing around American in a bid to win people over, performing on the rooftop of his US label Capitol Records, on Dancing with the Stars and on James Corden's TV show.

He's got a big gig ahead of him in his hometown when he supports Ed Sheeran at Croke Park in July, but the rising star will return home in December for a run of gigs at Dublin venue Whelan's just before Christmas.

He'll play the Wexford Street venue on December 21st, 22nd and 23rd.

Tickets are €22.90 including booking fee and on sale from usual outlets this coming Monday at 9am.
