The tour, which Ezra announced on Twitter as ‘the biggest run of dates [he] will have EVER played’, will showcase his second studio album Staying at Tamara’s.
Released in March 2018, the album reached number one in the UK album charts and features hit singles ‘Shotgun’ and ‘Paradise’.
Ezra has remained a familiar face in the charts since 2013, when he released the still-popular track ‘Budapest’. Since then, his easy going, folk-pop has continued to gain popularity, earning him over 14 million monthly listeners on Spotify and making him the 145th most listened to artist in the world.
Previously recognised as ‘one to watch’ by MTV, iTunes and Vevo, this year Ezra has been nominated for three Brit Awards including British Male Solo Artist, British Album of the Year (for Staying at Tamara’s), and British Single of the Year (for ‘Shotgun’) – to be announced 20th February.
Norwegian star Sigrid will join Ezra on the major tour as leading support act. The up-and-coming artist has been tipped for greatness and was crowned winner of BBC Sound Of 2018 and listed as an ‘essential new act’ by NME.
The Scandi singer rose to fame in 2017 with mellow, synth pop hit ‘Don’t Kill My Vibe’, which even featured on The Sims 4 soundtrack. Sigrid has since performed at some of the UK’s largest festivals including Glastonbury 2017.
Sigrid’s highly anticipated debut album Sucker Punch will be released in early March, featuring singles ‘Strangers’ and ‘Don’t Feel Like Crying’.
