James Bay

James Bay, the man who, let’s not forget, all British music critics believe is really the most exciting new artist you will hear in 2015, has announced tour dates for September and October. Good luck getting tickets before the critics snap them all up. They’ve already bought all the tickets for his upcoming April dates.

Tell you what, I’ll tell you the dates now and you can set an alarm for 8.55am tomorrow, so you can be totally prepared for when they go on sale at 9am.

Of course, this plan totally falls down if any critics are reading this. Hmm, OK, well there’s a special music critic allocation of tickets going up for sale at 10am. Honest. Or you could just try to blag them. But I think there’ll be quite a rush on the guestlist, what with every single critic hoping to get through that door.

Oh, by the way, James Bay’s album came out this week. As if you weren’t listening to it non-stop already. Just in case you’ve allowed a gap in your listening, here’s current single ‘Hold Back The River’.

Right, anyway, those dates. Here they are:

23 Sep: Manchester, Apollo
24 Sep: Glasgow, Academy
27 Sep: Newcastle, Academy
28 Sep: Leeds, Academy
30 Sep: London, Brixton Academy
4 Oct: Cambridge, Corn Exchange
5 Oct: Brighton, Dome
6 Oct: Bournemouth, Solent Hall
8 Oct: Birmingham, Academy
9 Oct: Swindon, Oasis
11 Oct: Belfast, Ulster Hall
14 Oct: Dublin, Olympia
