Leith Ross Announces Headline North American, UK And European Dates
The tour kicks off in Bristol, UK on April 11 and concludes on the artist’s home turf in Winnipeg, MB on June 16.
Following the release of their new single “(You) On My Arm” last Friday, rising Winnipeg singer, songwriter, and artist Leith Ross reveals their spring 2023 headline tour dates across North America, UK, and Europe.
The tour kicks off in Bristol on April 11 and makes stops at London’s Lafayette on April 17, Los Angeles’ Lodge Room on May 23, Brooklyn’s Music Hall of Williamsburg on June 6, Toronto’s The Danforth Music Hall on June 10 and more. Tickets will go on sale via pre-sale beginning tomorrow at 10am local time and via general on-sale on Friday, February 17 at 10am local time. Tickets will be available through the artist’s official website.
On the meaning behind their latest release “(You) On My Arm,” Leith declares, “This song is about having a massive crush on someone. It happens, fortunately and unfortunately. I hope it can help with any yearning you may feel the need to do. That’s what it has done for me. I love being gay.”
“(You) On My Arm” is Leith’s first release of 2023 and follows their previous viral singles “We’ll Never Have Sex” and “Orlando.” The breakout “We’ll Never Have Sex” has amassed over 37 million Spotify streams and 1 million video views to date. In support of their new music, Leith performed sold-out headline shows across North America last fall, as well as supporting Lord Huron in Canada and Andy Shauf and Helena Deland in Europe on various tours last year. Not to mention, they were the recipient of the inaugural John Prine Songwriter Fellowship at last year’s Newport Folk Festival.
Hailing from outside of Ottawa, Ontario, Leith Ross embraced music at a young age, channeling emotional confessions through softly strummed chords. Recorded live, they made their debut with the independent ‘Motherwell’ EP in 2020. Beyond prominent editorial playlisting, it incited widespread critical applause across US and Canada. Leith maintained this momentum in 2021 with the ‘I’d Have To Think About It,’ EP the title track has notably amassed nearly 12 million Spotify streams to date. With a rising profile on TikTok and among tastemakers, Leith signed to Republic Records in 2022.
