Ahead of their two sold-out headline Royal Albert Hall shows this weekend, Sam Smith has announced the official UK & Europe headline tour to celebrate their fourth studio album, Gloria, dropping 27th January 2023. Starting in Sheffield on Wednesday 12th April 2023, the UK and Ireland leg of the tour will travel nationwide and includes two homecoming shows at London’s O2 Arena (18th and 19th April 2023), continuing its journey through Europe, finishing at Manchester’s AO Arena on Wednesday 24th May 2023.
Sam’s upcoming 13-track record, Gloria will be their boldest statement yet and comes off the back of the huge success of lead single, Unholy. The megahit featuring Kim Petras has surpassed 200 million Spotify streams and remained on top of the Spotify and Apple Music global charts since the day of release. Unholy is Sam’s eighth number 1 smash and sits amongst only three artists to debut at number 1 this year on the UK Official Charts.
Sam’s second sold-out Royal Albert Hall show will be streamed live on TikTok this Saturday 22 October from 8:30pm onwards via Sam’s account. With a highly in-demand album, globe-straddling number 1 hit and exciting live plot, 2023 is undeniably going to be the year of Sam Smith.
