Sam Smith’s Australian arena tour is shaping up to be one of the biggest of the summer, beginning at Perth Arena on Saturday 28 November 2015. Adding to the anticipation, Frontier Touring can confirm that Smith will be joined once again on tour by Australia’s very own Emma Louise.
Smith will be performing tracks from his global smash debut In The Lonely Hour (out now through EMI Australia) which is fast approaching a 4x platinum certification in Australia while single ‘Stay With Me’ is nearing 5x platinum.
The star’s debut album recently made UK chart history; achieving the longest consecutive run ever for a debut album in the Top 10 of the Official Albums Chart. In The Lonely Hour has not left the Top 10 in the 67 weeks since its release in May 2014, breaking the record previously held by The Beatles.
In a year already marked by achievements and breaking records, Sam Smith announced earlier this week that he has recorded the new Bond theme song with fellow Grammy winner Jimmy Napes. Featured in the forthcoming film Spectre, the track ‘Writing’s On The Wall’ is slated for release on September 25.
Brisbane’s fearless indie-darling Emma Louise will be sharing the stage with Sam Smith for a second time this year, following her appearance as Sam’s special guest on his tour of Australia and New Zealand earlier this year.
Her acclaimed debut release Vs Head Vs Heart and its lead single ‘Jungle’ received huge support in Europe; going double platinum in Italy, reaching #2 in France, hitting the top 5 in the UK and featuring in an international TV sync for Yves Saint Laurent’s ‘Black Opium’ perfume campaign.
