Gordi replaces Paloma Faith as support act for Sam Smith's NZ & Australia tour

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, it’s been announced that Canowindra-born singer-songwriter Gordi will join Sam Smith at all shows on his Australian and New Zealand tour.

Gordi’s debut album Reservoir (Liberation Records), was released to widespread international critical acclaim. Following the release of Reservoir, Gordi went on to tour alongside the likes of Bon Iver, Ásgeir, Fleet Foxes, Metronomy, Julien Baker, Gang of Youths and Missy Higgins. With a number of incredible singles including ‘On My Side’, ‘Heaven I Know’, ‘Can We Work It Out’ and ‘I’m Done (featuring S. Carey)’, Gordi has been streamed over 10 million times on Spotify and features on the track ‘Postcard’ on pop sensation Troye Sivan’s debut album Bloom. She recently won the Songwriter Award at the inaugural Women In Music Awards and was nominated for the 2017 J Award for Australian Album of the Year.

Gordi will take over the special guest slot from the previously-announced support Paloma Faith, who is sadly no longer able to join Sam on The Thrill Of It All Australian and New Zealand tour. “I’m devastated to announce that due to unforeseen circumstances I have had to pull out of supporting Sam. I was so looking forward to it but I am sure Gordi will carry the torch for what promises to be an inspiring evening of music. Sam is just the best.” – Paloma Faith

After a handful of intimate Australian shows at the beginning of the year, including his first ever appearance at the iconic Sydney Opera House, Sam Smith’s acclaimed sophomore album The Thrill Of It All (certified Gold in Australia) returned to the top five on the ARIA Album Chart and has already gathered more than 4 million album sales worldwide. His chart domination has continued into 2018 with his Calvin Harris collaboration ‘Promises’, his 7th UK number one single which has held its position for 5 weeks and peaking at #4 on the ARIA Singles chart!
