Sam Fender has announced details of his biggest UK tour to date for the spring of 2020 – including shows at London’s Alexandra Palace and Newcastle Arena.
The young singer-songwriter, whose Hypersonic Missiles debut currently sits atop the Official UK Albums Chart, will will head out again across March and April, after selling out a forthcoming tour of the UK and Ireland later this year, which will see him perform four nights at Newcastle’s O2 Academy.
As uDiscover Music previously reported, Fender’s Hypersonic Missiles dethroned last week’s Number One – Post Malone’s Hollywood’s Bleeding – which now sits at Number Two, and is the only new release to feature in this week’s Top Five. Hypersonic Missiles is also only the fifth debut album to top the Official UK Albums Chart this year, following Tom Walker’s What A Time To Be Alive, Dave’s Psychodrama, Billie Eilish’s When We All Fall Asleep, Where Do We Go?, and Lewis Capaldi’s Divinely Uninspired To A Hellish Extent.
Speaking to the Official Charts website, Fender said of topping the album chart: “This is beyond dream territory. I thought my dreams were complete when I played Jools Holland, never mind this madness. Thanks to all the fans. This is just the start.”
Fender was presented with an official Number One award to commemorate the achievement, which was handed to him by former Newcastle United and England striker Alan Shearer.
Tickets for the newly-announced shows go on sale on Friday, 27 September. Check out the artist’s official website for further information about all the dates.
