The one and only Sam Smith will return to Australia and New Zealand this November on his The Thrill Of It All World Tour. Tickets are proving to be in high demand, with additional shows already added in Sydney, Melbourne, Brisbane and Auckland to accommodate the rush of excited fans.

Adding to the anticipation surrounding the tour, the award-winning singer songwriter will be joined at all shows by fellow British star Paloma Faith.

“I’m delighted to be supporting Sam. He’s an artist whose success I admire profoundly and his talent undeniable. A beautiful soul. I think we will be a great match, really looking forward to meeting his vibrant and loyal fans!” - Paloma Faith

Fresh from her recent shows with the Sydney Symphony Orchestra, the soul singer from Hackney will bring the best of her fourth album The Architect to life on stage. Released in November last year (via RCA/Sony), it follows the huge success of her last album A Perfect Contradiction, which gave rise to the epic lead single, ‘Only Love Can Hurt Like This’, her first ARIA #1 single and biggest-selling single to date.

Faith began making the album while pregnant with her first child and finished it as a new mother. “When you have a child, you look at the world differently,” she says. “I wanted to explain things to my child about the world they’re coming into, and to apologise for it.” On The Architect, the Brit Award winner elegantly combines the political with the personal, addressing issues like Brexit, Syria, and Donald Trump, all the while spreading a message of kindness. Given her status as one of only two British women this decade to have their last three albums go double platinum (the other being Adele), only Faith could round up a supporting cast for the new album that includes Sia, Samuel L. Jackson, John Legend, Owen Jones, Rag ‘n’ Bone Man and David Arnold.
