George Ezra today announces a UK & European tour for the autumn that includes his biggest headline shows to date, including a night at The SSE Arena, Wembley, in London on 15 November. The announcement comes as George’s March UK tour sold out in 24 hours and is coupled with the release of new song ‘Hold My Girl,’ the latest track to be lifted from his highly anticipated sophomore album Staying At Tamara’s, due 23 March.
George kicked off his world tour in Australia this month and returns to the UK for a run of sold out dates in the wake of the album’s release, including a night at Brixton’s O2 Academy. He has also been confirmed for a number of summer festivals, including headline slots at Standon Calling, Boardmasters and Truck Festival. UK dates are listed overleaf, with new dates in bold, see www.georgeezra.com to purchase and for the full list of dates confirmed so far, including summer festivals and a newly announced North America tour for April-May. Register at www.georgeezra.com to be in with a chance of pre-sale tickets; tickets for the new shows go general sale at 9am Friday 16th March.
‘Hold My Girl’ comes hot on the heels of another new song ‘Pretty Shining People,’ released last week, and current single ‘Paradise’, riding high in the top five of the UK iTunes chart. Like ‘Pretty Shining People,’ ‘Hold My Girl’ is accompanied by a lyric video which sees an increasingly desperate George performing karaoke to a woefully empty working men’s club.

George will release Staying At Tamara’s on 23 March via Columbia Records in digital, CD, cassette and vinyl formats. Three years after the release of his chart topping debut album Wanted On Voyage, George returns with a collection of “songs about escapism, dreaming, anxieties and love”. Staying at Tamara’s has already received early critical acclaim, with glowing 4* reviews from The Sun and DIY, the latter of whom described the album as a “gorgeous, much needed escape”. ‘Hold My Girl’, ’Pretty Shining People’, ‘Paradise’, and ‘Don’t Matter Now’ are all available to stream and download now, with all three available as instant grats to these pre-ordering the album.
