Following the release of Where Are You Now with Lost Frequencies, which continues to dominate the UK Top 5 and airwaves around the world with over 400 million streams to date, multi-platinum selling singer-songwriter Calum Scott today announces his biggest headline U.K. & European tour to date.
Calum will kick off the European leg of the tour in Vienna, Austria on 13 September before performing in cities across Germany, Switzerland, Czech Republic, France, Belgium, Netherlands, and Ireland. Calum performs at The Lowry (Sun 2 October) during the U.K. leg of the tour and concludes in his hometown, Hull.
“It feels so incredible to announce my U.K. & European tour! It’s been a long time coming and a lot of planning but after the last few years we’ve had, you can just tell how excited people are for live music again and I’m so happy to be a part of it. I am coming back with my band to play the songs that people discovered me on, as well as new songs from my second album which I would say is my best and most personal work yet – I can’t wait to see you there.”
The news also follows the latest release of Calum’s emotionally empowered single and video If You Ever Change Your Mind. It’s the third song that Calum has shared from his highly anticipated sophomore album, due out this spring.
If You Ever Change Your Mind arrived on the heels of Calum’s recent single Rise, a wildly soaring track whose video features a captivating performance from British actor Georgia Hirst (known for her role on the acclaimed historical drama Vikings).
Prior to releasing Rise (October 2021), Calum offered up the soulful minimalism of Biblical: a heart-on-sleeve ballad he later followed with an American Sign Language (ASL) version made in collaboration with the Tony Award®-winning Deaf West Theatre.
If You Ever Change Your Mind, Rise and Biblical will appear on the follow-up to Calum’s 2018 full-length debut album Only Human, that hit No. 1 on the iTunes album chart in 21 countries, selling more than 3.6 million and garnering over 7.5 billion combined streams.
