(UK) Today James Bay announced his next headline tour of the UK, taking in ten cities, including London’s Shepherds Bush Empire on Wednesday 8th April. This comes off the back of having completely sold out his November UK tour and his forthcoming headline show at London’s Koko on February 12th. As anyone who has witnessed James and his band live before will attest to, this is a tour absolutely not to be missed.
In the last 10 months, James has sold out an unprecedented run of shows for an artist yet to release his third EP, in London alone he has filled Hoxton Bar and Kitchen, Dingwalls, 2 nights at St Stephens Church, Scala and Koko.
His debut single ‘Hold Back The River’ is currently playlisted at Radio 1 and the accompanying video reached over a quarter of a million views in under a week with numbers continuing to climb rapidly. The ‘Hold Back The River EP’is released on 24th November via Virgin EMI.
