British soul legend and multi-platinum singer-songwriter Kenny Thomas has announced that he and his all-star band will be hitting the road in Spring 2024, on a 9-leg UK tour.
Tickets on-sale: Friday 22nd September at ticketmaster.co.uk
Kenny will take his soulful flair and greatest hits such as ‘Thinking About Your Love’, ‘Best of You’ and ‘Outstanding’ to some of the most historical theatres across the country, including Edinburgh Queens Hall, York Grand Hall and St George’s Bristol.
On the tour, Kenny says: “ Live gigs are one of the most enjoyable aspects of being a musician and it’s where my fans come together for a night of Soul-music and serious partying. So to announce the ‘HIM’ 2024 tour is really exciting for me and the band, and it’s an opportunity for us to play songs from my third album HIM which was never commercially released.
Over three decades on from when I first started out, this tour demonstrates that Soul-Music is here to stay.”
The announcement comes off the back of news that Kenny is to release a ‘Best Of’ album this year on November 3rd. Released on vinyl and CD, the album features all the big hits, fan favourites, and thought-to-be lost masters from his unreleased third album ‘HIM’, which were recently discovered.
In November and December this year, Kenny will embark on his ‘Brit-soul ascending’ tour performing his biggest UK theatre tour in over 20 years including a date at London’s Indigo at The O2.
Kenny remains one of the most important and successful UK soul singers of his generation with his debut album ‘Voices’ selling 600,000 copies in the UK alone on Chrysalis Records in 1991 achieving a total of 8 Top 40 singles and 2 Top 10 records whilst picking up 2 x BRIT-Award Nominations for ‘Best Male Vocalist’ and ‘Best Newcomer’.
