George Ezra continues his phenomenal ascent with the announcement of his first ever headline arena tour.
“WE’RE GOING ON TOUR!” says George. “And not just any tour, the biggest run of dates that I will have ever played...Get practising those songs, polishing off your dancing shoes, let’s make it one to remember.”
The announcement comes fresh from George headlining Boardmasters Festival and ahead of his long since sold out Autumn 2018 UK tour this November. His acclaimed number 1 album 'Staying At Tamara’s' is officially the biggest selling album released so far this year and remains in the top five of the Official Albums Chart 20 weeks after release, whilst his current single ‘Shotgun’ became his first ever number 1 single in June.
Staying At Tamara’s is George’s second UK Number 1 album, featuring lead single ‘Paradise,’ which peaked at Number 2 in the UK singles chart and has now been certified Platinum, along with ‘Hold My Girl’, ‘Pretty Shining People’, ‘Saviour,’ and ‘Don’t Matter Now’. The album comes nearly four years after the release of his multi-platinum and also-chart topping debut album 'Wanted On Voyage'.
Rising star Sigrid will be providing top class support. A natural performer, she has been capturing audiences internationally, achieving success with her UK Top Ten single 'Strangers'. With memorable performances at Glastonbury and Reading Festival in recent years, and the ‘BBC Music Sound of 2018’ award under her belt, Sigrid is not one to miss!
