From Liverpool songbird to national hero, the establishment-baiting pied piper from the banks of the Mersey, Jamie Webster rides a towering wave of success and announces a run of nine major venue, UK & Ireland dates for 2022, including a night at London’s O2 Shepherds Bush Empire, Manchester’s incomparable Albert Hall and an overdue visit to Dublin and the city’s Olympia Theatre. Going onsale to fans on Fri 28 January 2022 at 10am, the ambitious, multi-national tour reflects the unquestionable growth of both Webster’s songwriting craft and family of committed fans.
Speaking out for the downtrodden and left behind, singing stories that bring people and their hopes, loves and let-downs vividly to life, Webster’s second, emotive and full-throated, second album, Moments, is also released with Modern Sky this Friday 28 January 2022. The 10-track album, recorded at the seat of rock and roll, Rockfield Studios, looks likely to chase his 2020 Top Ten debut, We Get By, to the highest-reaches of the UK Official Albums Chart. As the UK’s first ever No.1 Official Folk Chart artist, a return to the pinnacle of specialist charts also looks certain.
Sharing in every success, fans had the chance to catch up with Webster on his first, ever complete UK Tour last winter, crowned by three, completely SOLD-OUT nights at Liverpool’s ornate Eventim Olympia. A further, rapid escalation in demand for tickets, not only will Webster play his home city’s 11,500-capacity M&S Bank Arena in November, but build his UK & Ireland tour, playing to 20,000 further, potential fans, around that celebratory night.
