Sam Smith support acts
The support acts for Sam Smith's UK tour have been revealed!
Bruno Major will open for Sam Smith at the majority of his UK concerts, with the exception of his last two dates at The O2 in London.
Scotland's Lewis Capaldi announced he'll be opening for Smith at his last two London dates before joining him on the road in Europe.
Capaldi said, "I can't get my head around this... My hometown has a population of 20,000 people and I'll be playing to nearly that many people a night all over Europe!
"Thank you Sam Smith. Have no words for this."
Sam Smith new album ‘ The Thrill Of It All’
The UK singer’s second studio album scored him another number one after debut LP ‘In The Lonely Hour’ hit the top spot in 2014.
According to Smith himself in a documentary for Apple Music ‘Sam Smith: On the Record’, the new album differs from his first effort in that it reveals more about his private life.
He says in the trailer, "I wasn't trying to make a big pop record when I made this album. I was actually just trying to make something personal and like a diary."
The first single to be released from the album was ‘Too Good At Goodbyes’, which topped the UK charts in September.
‘One Last Song’ came as the album’s second single. Smith opted not to release the track with a music video, which dropped on the same day as the album itself. Smith went on to release two further promotional singles ‘Pray’...
