“WE’RE GOING ON TOUR!” says George. “And not just any tour, the biggest run of dates that I will have ever played, ending at the O2 in London (The Millennium Dome). Touring these new songs along with all of the first album has meant that the last year has been the most amazing twelve months imaginable, to all of you that have made a show so far, thank you. And to all of you that we will see next year, hold tight! Get practising those songs, polishing off your dancing shoes, let’s make it one to remember.”
The announcement comes fresh from George headlining Boardmasters Festival and ahead of his long since sold out autumn 2018 UK tour this November. His acclaimed number 1 album Staying At Tamara’s is officially the biggest selling album released so far this year and remains in the top five of the Official Albums Chart 20 weeks after release, whilst his current single ‘Shotgun’ became his first ever number 1 single in June.
Staying At Tamara’s is George’s second UK Number 1 album, hitting the summit in March. Staying At Tamara’s also features lead single ‘Paradise,’ which peaked at Number 2 in the UK singles chart and has now been certified Platinum, and ‘Hold My Girl’, ‘Pretty Shining People’, ‘Saviour,’ and ‘Don’t Matter Now’. The album is available in digital, CD, cassette and vinyl formats, and arrived nearly four years after the release of his multi-platinum and also-chart topping debut album Wanted On Voyage .
Not content with hitting the summit of the album and singles charts, George is also a chart-topping podcaster, with his series George Ezra & Friends shooting straight to number 1 on the iTunes Podcast Chart on launch and being nominated for numerous awards. George Ezra & Friends is a unique podcast series in which he spends an extended period of time with a musician friend in an often intimate, funny and revealing one-to-one conversation. Series 1 recently wrapped up with a no holds barred chat with one of music’s all time legends, Elton John, which followed previous episodes with Ed Sheeran, Lily Allen, Sam Smith, Craig David, Rag’n’Bone Man, London Grammar’s Hannah Reid and many more.
