Grammy award-winning singer Sam Smith has confirmed a special guest for his first comeback show after throat surgery.

The 23-year-old announced on Twitter that he will be supported by singer-songwriter, Frances, at his Thetford Forest show on Friday, July 3.

Smith said that he “could not wait” to play for fans again, following surgery to correct throat damage in May.

He had to cancel a series of shows following the surgery – including the Radio 1 Big Weekend event at Norwich – and fears had been raised that he would miss the Forest Live event.

Last Tuesday he shared a video on his Facebook page showing him talking for the first time in three weeks, in which he said he would be back on July 3 to perform.
