Byline: BRIAN DANIEL

POP superstar Jessie J is to headline an outdoor show in the region this summer.

Jessie J, best known for her number one hit Price Tag and as a coach and mentor on TV show The Voice UK, will lead the line up at the event at Northumberland's Alnwick Castle in July. Twelve thousand fans are expected to flock to the pastures beneath the castle, home to the Duke and Duchess of Northumberland, for the concert.

Jessie J came to prominence following the release of her debut single Do It Like a Dude which peaked at number two.

After scoring her first number one in the UK, France, Ireland and New Zealand with Price Tag, she released her debut album Who You Are, last year, which charted at number two.

Other releases from the album include Nobody's Perfect, Who's Laughing Now and Who You Are which all made the top 20.

The release of fifth single Domino spawned international chart success, peaking at number six on the American Billboard Hot 100 and becoming her second UK number one.

With her latest hit, Laserlight, Jessie J has set a new chart record of six single hits from her debut album.

The singer mixes a soul sound with contemporary R&B, pop music and hip-hop influences.

Jessie J has won various awards and nominations, including the 2011 Critics' Choice BRIT Award and the BBC's Sound of 2011.

The show takes place on Saturday, July 21 with details of support acts yet to be released. Tickets go on sale today priced pounds 32.50 for adults and pounds 22.50 for children, plus booking fees.
