James Bay announces UK and Ireland 2015 tour
James Bay has confirmed a UK and Ireland tour after topping the UK Albums Chat with his debut release, Chaos and the Calm.

The 2015 BRITs Critics’ Choice Award winner has confirmed a nationwide tour of the UK and Ireland for September and October 2015.

James Bay’s tour will get underway at Manchester’s O2 Apollo on 23 September and come to an end at Dublin’s Olympia on 14 October.

September will see the 24-year-old singer-songwriter perform in Glasgow, Newcastle, Leeds and London’s O2 Brixton Academy. Fans in Cambridge, Brighton, Bournemouth, Birmingham, Swindon and Belfast will be treated to shows from James Bay the following month.

The tour follows the release of Chaos and the Calm, James Bay’s debut studio album, which charted at No.1 in the UK on Sunday (29 March 2015) while his single, Hold Back the River, is at No.2 on the UK Singles Chart.

In addition to his autumn tour James Bay will pay a number of headline shows around the UK this spring, along with playing a headline concert at Somerset House in July as part of the Summer Series.

James Bay tickets for his autumn dates go on general sale on Thursday 2 April while tickets can be purchased here for all other dates.
