“Fans will find bags of charm in bold, storytelling songs fashioned for arenas.” – Sunday Times Culture

It’s already been over two years since Amy Macdonald last played some full scale UK headline shows, but the wait is now set to come to an end as she announces a long awaited tour. Commencing in October and representing her first since the release of the Top 10 album ‘The Human Demands’, the tour features her rescheduled show at London’s historic Roundhouse alongside new dates in Reading, Manchester, Stockton and Ipswich. It will culminate with a huge homecoming night at Glasgow’s SSE Hydro on December 17th.

The tour was announced this morning on Zoe Ball’s Breakfast Show on Radio 2, which included a brand new session from Amy. Radio 2’s huge support of ‘The Human Demands’ album also continues with the news that Amy’s current single ‘Statues’ remains on the A-list for a phenomenal sixth consecutive week.

The dates are:

22nd – Manchester, Bridgewater Hall (NEW SHOW)
23rd – Stockton, Globe (NEW SHOW)
25th – Ipswich, Regent (NEW SHOW)

Amy commented, “I wasn’t sure if we’d be able to do this but I’m very excited to announce live dates in the UK for 2021! I cannot wait to get back on stage and share my new songs (and the old ones!) with my fans up and down the country, and my team and I feel very positive that we’ll be able to do these shows come October. And as for Glasgow Hydro, I’ve been looking forward to playing my own show there ever since it opened, now it looks like we’ll be able to make it happen this year! I’m so appreciative of everyone’s patience with us in getting back to playing live shows again, and me and the guys promise to put everything into these shows, it’s going to be the most exciting tour I’ve ever done!

News of the UK dates follows the rescheduling of Amy’s European tour for March 2022. A full list of dates and ticket information can be found here.
