Sam Smith Announces 2015 North American Tour Dates
Following a stellar 2014 -- during which Sam Smith released his breakout debut, In the Lonely Hour -- the English singer-songwriter intends to maintain that momentum well into 2015 with a new string of North American tour dates this summer.
Smith kicks things off with a series of music festival appearances, including the Hangout festival in Gulf Shores, Ala. and Rock in Rio USA in Las Vegas in mid-May, along with Forecastle in Louisville in July. He’s also slated to play at the Canadian WayHome and Squamish Valley music festivals.
Afterward, the “Stay With Me” singer will make his way to arenas across the country, with dates scheduled between July and August. Check out the complete list of North American dates below. The European leg of Smith’s tour can be found on his website.
Earlier this month, Smith took home the Grammy for Best New Artist, Best Pop Vocal Album for In the Lonely Hour and Record and Song of the Year for “Stay With Me.”
Around the same time, Smith debuted a music video for album single, “Lay Me Down” – a moving tribute to marriage equality -- which you can see here.
