Sam Smith’s Australian arena tour is shaping up to be one of the biggest of the summer, and it just got bigger.
Adding to the anticipation, Frontier Touring have confirmed that Smith will be joined on tour by Queensland’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.
Ticketholders to Sam Smith’s tour will be amongst the first to hear tracks from Emma Louise’s forthcoming sophomore release as well as much loved favourites from her impressive career.
Sam Smith will play the Brisbane Entertainment Center on Saturday 12 December. For more information, visit our event guide.
