British pop superstar Sam Smith is bringing their ‘GLORIA the tour’ to Australia and New Zealand this year.
Beginning in Adelaide on Saturday, October 28th, Smith will then perform in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, before heading to New Zealand for a final stop in Auckland on Saturday, November 11th (see full dates below).
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Wednesday, January 18th. The Frontier Members pre-sale begins on Monday, January 16th, while the Telstra Plus (AU) members pre-sale kicks off on Friday, January 13th.
“Both countries hold such a special place in my heart and we’re working hard on delivering an incredible show for you all!” Smith said about their upcoming Australian and New Zealand tour. “I can’t wait for you to see it and be with you all again soon.” It will be Smith’s first live shows in both countries since 2018.
The tour is in support of Smith’s forthcoming fourth studio album Gloria, which is scheduled for release on Friday, January 27th (pre-order here).
The album contains the singer-songwriter’s huge hit “Unholy”, a collaboration with Kim Petras that topped the ARIA Singles Chart, as well as lead single “Love Me More”.
Gloria has been described by Smith as feeling “like emotional, sexual and spiritual liberation.” “It was beautiful, with this album, to sing freely again, for me. It feels like a coming of age,” Smith added.
