Eurovision’s affable runner-up will play London, Belfast, Manchester and more next year
Sam Ryder has announced a massive tour of the UK throughout spring next year. Tickets for the shows go on sale at 9am on Friday 17 March. Find a detailed list of his tour dates at the bottom of this article.
The tour comes as Ryder prepares to release his debut album There’s Nothing But Space, Man! Later this year.
After going viral on TikTok, Ryder has risen to national popularity thanks to a decent turn as the UK’s entry for Eurovision 2022, where he was narrowly beaten to the number one spot by Ukraine. His meteoric rise was underscored when he performed at the Queen’s Jubilee earlier this year.
Beginning at Belfast’s Ulster Hall on Friday 17 March, Ryder’s expansive 2023 tour will visit 13 venues across the UK, including dates in Manchester, Glasgow, Newcastle and London, with a final date at the Brighton Dome on Wednesday 5 April. He’ll also play two shows in London this November. Tickets for these performances are on sale now.
