Sam Smith has announced the official UK and Europe tour for their upcoming fourth studio album Gloria. The tour will launch at Sheffield’s Motorpoint Arena on 12 April, before coming to a conclusion on 24 May at Manchester’s AO Arena.
Gloria, which will feature 13 tracks, is due for release 27 January. It will include Love Me More and the Kim Petras assisted collaboration Unholy, which smashed the charts worldwide – peaking at number one and two in the UK and US, respectively.
It became their eighth chart-topper in the UK and Kim’s first, as well as her first entry on the Billboard Hot 100. The pop anthem also reached the pole position in Australia, Canada, Ireland and New Zealand.
In their announcement for Gloria, Sam said they’re “feeling overwhelmed and emotional as I start to let go” of the album and “hand this work over to you”. “It has been magical in every way to make this piece of music,” they added, “and by giving this record to you I am giving you part of my heart and soul.” You can pre-order Gloria on any format from the Sam Smith store before 4pm BST on 24 October to receive an exclusive pre-sale ticket code for the tour.
