"It’s the 20th anniversary of White Ladder, a unique record with its own remarkable history," Gray said.

"Jammed full with big, open hearted songs and flooded with a raw emotional energy. It’s an album that came from nowhere to steal the hearts of millions all over the world, completely transforming my life in the process.

"Twenty years on and it feels like White Ladder is just as alive for people now as it was back then - so to celebrate this milestone, I will be releasing a special anniversary version of the album and assembling all the original band members with all the original equipment, in order to take White Ladder out on the road and recreate the record in its entirety."

Already confirmed for Musgrave Park next summer is Lewis Capaldi, The Script, Picture This and Dermot Kennedy while several more acts are set to be announced in the coming months.
