Sigrid has announced her biggest headline tour to date in support of her debut album, Sucker Punch, released through Island Records on 8 March.
The tour will launch in November 2019 and see the fast-rising Norwegian pop star performing at London’s Eventim Apollo and 3Arena in Dublin, alongside huge regional venues. Meanwhile, Sigrid and continues her A-List record success with the defiant single ‘Don’t Feel Like Crying’, which she performed on The Late Show with Stephen Colbert last week. You can watch the performance below here.
The 22-year-old’s epic songs are tales of the unexpected; fearless musical collages and shout-outs to human resilience, starting at the piano in Norway, “There’s a certain grace to heartache”, says Sigrid, “A sort of…epic grace! I like good, heartfelt pop songs,” which is the foundation of her extraordinary debut Sucker Punch.
Sigrid’s rebellious pop was catapulted into the public consciousness with the zeitgeist defining ‘Don’t Kill My Vibe’; the certified-Gold ‘Strangers’, A-List record ‘High Five’, critically lauded ‘RAW’ EP and new single ‘Sucker Punch’. With performances at The Royal Variety Show, the Nobel Peace Prize and headlining Brixton Academy under her belt, Sigrid is set to tour the UK next month with George Ezra, playing arena’s including O2 London.
Over the past two years, Sigrid has won BBC Sound of 2018, debuted at Glastonbury, lit up festivals across Reading, Roskilde, Coachella and Radio 1’s Biggest Weekend, bewitched TV audiences from opening Later…with Jools Holland, The Late Late Show with James Corden and wowing Dame Helen Mirren on the Graham Norton Show.
