Yungblud has announced that he’ll hit the road once more next year for an acoustic tour across the UK.
The singer, who is set to release his second album WEIRD! next month, will bring the ‘Intimate As F_k Tour Part 2’ to a series of venues across March and April 2021.
After kicking off at Kingston’s Pryzm on March 29, he’ll travel the entire length of the country before winding up at Coventry Empire on April 6.
Yungblud’s acoustic dates follow the first leg of his ‘Intimate As F_k’ tour, which saw him performing to crowds in Kingston, Edinburgh and Leeds last year.

Last week, Yungblud shared the video for his recent single “Cotton Candy”. It’s the latest release from WEIRD! and follows on from the release of the titular track, as well as “God Save Me, But Don’t Drown Me Out” and “Strawberry Lipstick”.
“‘Cotton Candy’ is about sexual liberation,” Yungblud recently said about the song. “To me sex and sexuality is about freedom and the idea that you can to lose yourself in other people of all genders, of all shapes and sizes to find yourself and figure out who you truly are. Sexual interaction should not be shamed, it should be celebrated because to have safe sex is to spread love and the world needs love more than ever right now.”
Next month Yungblud will embark on a virtual ‘world tour’ that will actually take place digitally.
“The thing I miss about playing shows is the individuality of every night. The different faces, the different energy, but most of all the different cultures,” Yungblud said in a statement. “Our community may be from different parts of the world, yet we have similar beliefs, it is incredible.”
The tour will kick off digitally in London on November 16 and continue through December 7 when it concludes in Sydney. Despite being hosted online rather than in-person venues, The ‘Weird Time Of Life’ Tour will still deliver a unique, localized experience complete with full-scale digital production and an opening act to be announced at a later time. Fans are able to purchase tickets to any show of their choosing, regardless of their location, with limited quantities available in each city to replicate a live show.
Weird! is out on November 13 and can be pre-ordered here.
