Sam Smith has announced a show at Dublin's 3Arena on April 14th, 2023 to celebrate their fourth studio album, Gloria, dropping January 27th.
Ahead of their two sold-out headline Royal Albert Hall shows this weekend, Smith released the official UK & Europe headline tour dates to their fans.
Starting in Sheffield on Wednesday 12th April 2023, the UK and Ireland leg of the tour will travel nationwide and includes two homecoming shows at London’s O2 Arena (18th and 19th April 2023), continuing its journey through Europe, finishing at Manchester’s AO Arena on Wednesday 24th May 2023.
Sam’s upcoming 13-track record, Gloria will be their boldest statement yet and comes off the back of the huge success of lead single, 'Unholy'.
The megahit featuring Kim Petras has surpassed 200 million Spotify streams and remained on top of the Spotify and Apple Music global charts since the day of release. 'Unholy' is Sam’s eighth number 1 smash and sits amongst only three artists to debut at number 1 this year on the UK Official Charts.
In a press release, Smith described the album as an "emotional, sexual and spiritual liberation" that let them sing freely again. "Oddly, it feels like my first-ever record. And it feels like a coming of age," the Grammy, Brit, Golden Globe and Academy Award-winning artist added.
The record was produced between Los Angeles, Jamaica and London and features collaborations with the likes of Jimmy Napes, Stargate and ILYA. It follows Smith's 2020 LP Love Goes.
During an appearance on The Kelly Clarkson Show last week, Smith revealed what inspired the single 'Unholy'. "This song is about being part of someone's secret that you don't want to be a part of," the singer told Clarkson. "Being in the music industry, I've spent a lot of time with a lot of guys and a lot of dirty pigs. I've been part of secrets I didn't want to be a part of sometimes... I hate secrets. I'm not into it."
Sam’s second sold-out Royal Albert Hall show will be streamed live on TikTok this Saturday 22 October from 8:30pm onwards via Sam’s account.
Tickets priced from €65 on sale Thursday, October 27th at 10am. Pre-sale is Thursday, October 25th at 10am. Pre-save Gloria here.
