Holly Humberstone has announced her biggest UK and European tour to date, headlining 20 venues in Spring 2024, including The Albert Hall in Manchester on 8 March and London’s Eventim Apollo on 13 March 2024.
From selling out her LA headline show at The Fonda Theatre to storming the stages at Lollapalooza in Chicago to Summersonic in Japan and debuting on the mainstage at Reading & Leeds in the UK, Holly’s consistent live experiences capture the heart of her raw songwriting.
This week, Humberstone will play a run of intimate live shows in partnership with independent record stores across the UK. In celebration of the release of her debut album, Paint my Bedroom Black on 13 October, the dates will be the only chance to catch Holly live in the UK before her headline tour next year. The run of sold-out in-stores include a special hometown date at Nottingham’s Rough Trade, a short distance from Grantham where Holly grew up, as well as two sold-out Rough Trade East’s. Tickets for Holly’s headline spring tour are on pre-sale now, and go on general sale on 6 October at 10am BST.
The production of Humberstone’s new album Paint My Bedroom Black unfolds into new sonic architecture – the teenage bedroom door opens into swathes of LA and London night buses, with high-octane pop pressure points, neon electronica, and 80s rock runs. The album writhes in the lyrical and sonic duality of an artist propelled into new experiences and shifting identities, and represents her coming of age, growing from an unknown singer at her parent’s piano to one of the most exciting alternative pop stars. The dark and otherworldly space Holly has built and invited fans into, both sonically and visually, has been lucid and visceral, with the camera always on her shoulder, a lens into her chaotic thoughts and deep feelings.
