Leon Bridges is pleased to share details of a European and UK tour for Summer 2022.
The shows will be the Grammy Award winning artist’s first outside of the US since the release of his acclaimed third album, Gold-Diggers Sound back in July, and his first across the Atlantic since November 2018.
The tour kicks off in Stockholm on 13th June (preceded by a festival performance at Best Kept Secret in the Netherlands), concluding at Tonhalle in Munich on 6th July. It arrives in the UK on 17th June for a night at Manchester’s Apollo, followed by shows in Birmingham, Bristol, London’s Eventim Apollo, Dublin and Edinburgh, before heading back to Europe and Paris on 30th June. See below for full tour details.
Since Leon introduced himself with the vintage soul of his debut LP Coming Home back in 2015, he’s remained an ever-evolving and unpredictable artist with each new release. What does remain constant however, is Leon’s smooth, sultry vocal and a fiercely collaborative spirit that has seen him share the studio with the likes of Diplo, Lucky Daye, Kacey Musgraves, Noah Cyrus, John Mayer, Shawn Mendes, Anderson .Paak, Terrace Martin, The Avalanches, and an ongoing series of EP releases with fellow Texans, Khruangbin. On Gold-Diggers Sound, Leon found the unlikely sweet spot where R&B, jazz, soul, afrobeat and psych co-exist in a deeply personal record that moves his musical narrative two steps left and ever forward-facing.
