Preview: Emeli Sandé at St John-at-Hackney Church, London


Following her re-entrance on to the music scene after a three year ‘hermit period’, and the announcement of her second album Long Live The Angels being released this November, Emeli Sandé will be conducting an intimate tour this October. In a change to the atypical format where famous stars perform in big arenas, Sandé has decided to tour in smaller venues that will give the shows a more ‘personal’ feel. Sandé said that she “really wanted to reconnect with [her] fans on an intimate level… and these small shows felt like the perfect way to catch up”. This will include four UK dates in the first week of October, including the London show on 6th October, as well as further dates in Amsterdam, Paris, Berlin and Stockholm. It will be followed by a ‘standard’ tour in 2017. 

Sandé rose to fame in 2011 with the release of of ‘Heaven’ and ‘Daddy’ before her mainstream breakthrough single ‘Next To Me’, which was followed by the heartbreaking ‘Read All About It, Part III’ famously performed at the London 2012 Opening Ceremony. Her debut album Our Version of Events then became a chart-topper in 2012 and has now sold over two million copies making it one of the most commercially successful albums this decade. She has been lauded for the emotion she puts in to her music and her heartfelt and touching lyrics. During the shows, Sandé will be performing hit songs for her previous album as well as her new single ‘Hurts’, which is currently charting in the Top-10 on ITunes, and brand new exclusive preview material from the new album.
