Initial SA tour info:

Soul singer Sam Smith brings his Sam Smith Thrill of it All Tour to South Africa in April 2019. Bonj (Bongiwe Mpanza) joins him as support on his South African dates.

The star first hit the charts as the featured singer on the 2012 Disclosure song Latch, and he released his first single, Lay Me Down, soon after. His next hit was on a featured role by Naughty Boy’s Bollywood-inspired La La La. With Smith’s vocals the song became an instant No.1 single in the UK in 2013. He then released his first EP, Nirvana.

In 2014, Smith released In The Lonely Hour, his heartfelt debut full length album, which has sold 13 million copies. The album included the smash hit Stay With Me, which became a radio staple over the course of the entire year. Smith was nominated for six Grammys and won four, including Song of the Year and Record of the Year.

Sam Smith The Thrill of It All

At the 2015 Brit Awards, he won the awards for British Breakthrough Act and Global Success. At the 2015 Billboard Music Awards, Smith received three Billboards: Top Male Artist, Top New Artist and Top Radio Songs Artist. He has been mentioned twice in the Guinness World Records. Hit song Writing’s on the Wall co-written with Jimmy Napes for the James Bond (007) film Spectre (2015), won Smith the Golden Globe Award and the Academy Award for Best Original Song.

The Thrill of It All,  which has already sold 4 million copies, sees Sam once again working alongside long-term collaborator Jimmy Napes, as well as Timbaland, Malay, Jason ‘Poo Bear’ Boyd and Stargate. The album also sees Sam collaborate with unsigned artist, YEBBA for their track No Peace.

Too Good At Goodbye, the first single off the new album, saw global success hitting #1 in the UK and Global Spotify Charts, #1 in the UK and US iTunes charts and entering the official UK charts at #1, making it Sam’s sixth UK number one single. One Last Song is a track Sam wrote as a final wave goodbye to the person that inspired his breakout debut record In the Lonely Hour.
