James Blunt Announces UK Arena Tour For 2024
James Blunt makes a most welcome return to the road next year in support of his much-anticipated new album Who We Used To Be – out on 27 October on Atlantic Records.
James and his band will play 12 dates across the UK next Spring kicking off 30 March at Leeds First Direct Arena and concluding on 14 April at the Bournemouth International Centre.
“I cannot find the words to say how excited I am to get back out on the road again on tour in 2024” Blunt said in an official statement. “My new album was incredibly fun to write and record, and some of the new songs will undoubtedly get you up on your feet and dancing again. I’m looking forward to crowd surfing at a venue near you!”
Pre-sale tickets for all the shows will be available on Wednesday, 30 August and on general sale Friday, 1 September.
Blunt recently made headlines when he performed a rendition of his 2019 track Monsters alongside American Idol Season 21 winner Iam Tongi on the show’s season finale. Monsters was included in Blunt’s sixth studio album, Once Upon a Mind. The song was originally written as a response to Blunt’s father’s struggle with stage four chronic kidney disease, while Tongi performed the track on American Idol, dedicating it to his late father.
The new record follows Blunt’s recent greatest hits collection, The Stars Beneath My Feet, which went Gold selling more than 100,000 copies.
