It’s the Sam Smith news we’ve been waiting for. The British singer has this morning confirmed that he’s rescheduled his Australian tour dates.
You may remember back in April that he was forced to pull out of concerts in Sydney, Melbourne, Perth and Adelaide due to “a small haemorrhage on his vocal cords”; a haemorrhage that later required surgery. But it seems Sam’s well on the way to recovery, with he and touring agent Frontier today confirming he’ll return to Australia in late November to complete the national run of arena shows.
“Australia, I am so so happy to finally have some good news for you.. I can now announce that my cancelled ‘In The Lonely Hour’ tour dates have been rescheduled!” he said in a statement. “I’m unbelievably excited to get back onstage and perform for you all again, and I promise it will be so much better than it would have been before when my voice was damaged. The past few months have been incredibly difficult, but the support, love and patience my fans have shown me is absolutely unreal. I am so grateful to every one of you. I can’t wait to see you all. xxxx”
The new run of dates kick off at Perth Arena on November 28 before stops in Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne and, finally, Brisbane on December 12.
