James Bay Announces New UK Tour Dates

And here's how you can score presale tickets...

James Bay is officially back with a new album on the way and live shows this Spring! Want to find out how to get your hands on tickets before anyone else? Keep reading… 

Who is James Bay? 

Since releasing debut single “Don’t Let Go” in 2014, Hitchen born singer-songwriter James Bay has become a household name in the UK and beyond, selling millions of records and playing to thousands of adoring fans in huge venues. 

After winning the Brit’s Critics Choice Award in February 2015, Bay released his debut album Chaos and the Calm to critical acclaim. The album contains the wildly popular single “Hold Back the River” and peaked at number 1 on the UK albums chart. 

Known for a hugely engaging and enthralling live show, the singer toured globally throughout 2015 and 2016, both supporting other artists (hello Taylor Swift) and playing huge venues on his own headline tours such as London’s Hammersmith Apollo, Manchester’s Castlefield Bowl and New York City’s iconic Radio City Music Hall. The young musician has also played festivals such as T In The Park, Parklife and Glastonbury. 

After taking a year out of the spotlight, James dropped his new single “Wild Love” last month, debuting a new sound and a new look. (where’s the hat gone?) The single is the first to be taken from his upcoming sophomore album Electric Light, due for release on 18 May 2018. You can check out the video for “Wild Love”, starring Stanger Things actress Natalia Dyer below: 

James is playing London’s Electric Brixton this month with tickets for the event predictably selling out instantly. Don’t miss your chance to see James Bay live on tour this Spring.
