The tour will be in support of Emeli’s hugely acclaimed second studio album “Long Live The Angels”, which achieved the biggest week one sales for a British female solo artist this year!
A lot has happened to Sandé in the four years since the resounding success of her critically acclaimed number one record,’ Our Version Of Events’. Not only was it the biggest selling album of 2012 and second biggest selling album of 2013, but it was also certified 7x platinum, spent seven non-consecutive weeks at No.1 and exceeded The Beatles' previous record by spending 63 consecutive weeks in the top 10 and selling over 4.6 million copies worldwide. The Aberdonian scored three UK number 1 singles including ‘Next to Me’ which is certified platinum in the U.S., with over 1.5 million singles sold. Sandé has won numerous accolades including 3 X Brit Awards (Critics Choice, Best Album, Female Solo) as well as awards from Q Magazine, Elle, Harpers and GQ. The multi-instrumentalist initially made her mark as a songwriter in the UK urban scene via acts such as Wiley, Wretch 32 and Chip, later becoming a highly sought-after writer for a wide array of international acts including Alicia Keys, Rihanna and Katy Perry.
Calum Scott has been chosen as Emeli's main support. The breakout UK artist, singer and songwriter’s poignant version of Robyn’s “Dancing On My Own” has become a global sensation selling over 4M copies worldwide. The song was the best-selling U.K. single of 2016 by a British solo artist and was nominated for a Brit Award for Best Single.
