Sam Smith Announces ‘GLORIA The Tour’ Including Stop In Utah
Multi-Platinum, GRAMMY, BRIT, Golden Globe and Oscar winning artist/songwriter Sam Smith announced, GLORIA The Tour – their first North American run since 2018! The 27-city headline outing will kick off on July 25 in Miami, FL and includes a stop at Utah’s own Vivint Arena on August 19th! Jessie Reyez, who guests on Sam’s forthcoming album, Gloria, will be the special guest for the night.
Set for release on January 27, Sam’s fourth studio album, Gloria, includes the GRAMMY-nominated single “Unholy” ft. Kim Petras, which spent three weeks at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 and four weeks atop the UK Official Singles Chart. If you’re present on social media, you may recognize the song from the hundreds of thousands of TikTok’s and Reels created using the audio.
“Unholy” was hailed as one of the best songs of 2022 by Rolling Stone, which noted, ‘Smith…stepped away from their signature ballad sound to create a catchy, dirty song about a ‘daddy getting hot at the body shop’ behind mummy’s back.” The song appeared on numerous other critics’ list, including Associated Press, Billboard and Esquire, with the later observing, “With sultry lyrics and a music video that’ll make just about anyone clutch their pearls, ‘Unholy’ is the ultimate party anthem.” And this is just a taste of what’s to come.
Tickets for GLORIA The Tour will go on sale Monday, January 9th, at 9:00am MT. You can view all tour stops and get your tickets HERE.
