If you weren't able to jet up to Sydney for his intimate Opera House gig tomorrow night, you can wipe those tears: Sam Smith is returning to Australia in November and he’ll be playing five whole arena shows.
It’ll be the soulful UK singer’s first tour of Australia in three years. During that time he’s accumulated a colossal cache of metalware from ARIA, the Golden Globes, the Brits and the Grammys, selling over 12 million albums in the process to become one of the world’s most successful contemporary artists.
He’ll grace Rod Laver Arena on November 6, singing tracks from his latest record The Thrill of It All, including hit single ‘Too Good at Goodbyes’. General release tickets go on sale at 2pm on Monday January 22 – if you want to save yourself the heartbreak of missing out on seeing the wildly popular balladeer twice in a year, you’d better set those lunch hour alarms now.
Sam Smith's not the only megastar coming to Melbourne this year – Mariah's also on her way.
Can't wait till October? There's plenty of Laneway sideshows to check out.
