Following the release of his double A side single ‘Fading Into Grey’/‘My Only Soul’, up and coming singer-songwriter Billy Lockett has been announced as special guest on Jeff Lynne’s ELO’s massive UK and European arena tour this autumn, which includes four nights at the London O2 Arena! Following these dates, Billy will join Lewis Capaldi on his UK tour in November.
The announcement comes after a summer that has seen Billy go from strength to strength, having played a sold out Union Chapel, a huge homecoming show in Northampton for BBC Introducing and the announcement of a European headline tour that will include the O2 Shepherds Bush Empire. Listen to new singles ‘Fading Into Grey’ and ‘My Only Soul’ HERE
These two new tracks follow previous 2018 singles ‘Feels So Good’ and ‘Empty House’. Billy’s debut EP ‘Burn It Down’ reached Number 1 on the singer songwriter chart and received over 6 million streams.
With champions from BBC Radio 1, 6Music, The Telegraph, The Independent, Metro, Evening Standard and The Times, support slots with Lana Del Rey and Birdy under his belt, Billy is set to make 2018 his own.
