Sam Smith has announced a 27-date North American tour in support of their impending studio album, Gloria, set to drop on Jan. 27. Smith wrote on Instagram: “This is going to be so special, it’s been too long sailors!! Can’t wait to see all your gorgeous faces and celebrate the era of GLORIA together.”
Gloria will feature collaborations with Kim Petras, Reyez, Koffee, and Ed Sheeran. Smith wrote in a statement about the album: “Gloria got me through some dark times and was a beacon for me in my life. I hope it can be that for you. Thank you for waiting so long.”
The tour will kick off on July 25 at FTX Arena in Miami, Florida, making stops in Orlando, Nashville, New York, Toronto, Chicago, and Denver before wrapping-up on Sept. 14 at Palacio de Los Deportes in Mexico City. Singer Jessie Reyez will serve as support on tour joining Smith on all but one tour date. General on sale for the tour begins on Friday, Jan. 13 at 9 a.m. local time.
The Gloria Tour marks Smith’s first since 2019 in support of their sophomore effort, The Thrill of it All. Since then, they have released their third record, Love Goes, and scored the No. 1 single “Unholy” alongside Kim Petras.
