JAMES BLAKE Tickets
James Blake tickets for his biggest tour yet in September are on sale now on Aloud.com
With a universally acclaimed, recently released sophomore album, 'Overgrown' and sold-out UK tour already under his belt, April is proving to be a stellar month for James Blake.
Now he bolsters this even further with the announcement of a new string of UK live dates for September, which will ensure the rest of 2013 continues to shine as brightly.
The follow-up to his Mercury-nominated eponymous debut, ‘Overgrown’ has drawn glowing reviews from across the board, already placing it as one of the best-received records of 2013.
While the recent string of British shows sold out rapidly, the announcement of a further set of dates this Autumn will give fans another chance to witness the spine-tingling power of James’ live realisation of the album’s tracks when he performs at six cities across the country.
Commencing at Glasgow’s ABC on September 18th, James then visits Manchester, Birmingham, Oxford and Bristol before arriving home in London on the 25th to play the renowned Shepherd’s Bush Empire.
Having released one of 2011’s most talked about and critically praised records in the form of his eponymous debut album, James has performed to heaving crowds at gigs and festivals across the planet, whilst album sales are getting on for half a million worldwide.
British electronic composer James Blake began his musical career by recording songs in his bedroom while studying Popular Music at Goldsmiths in London. His debut single 'Air or Lack Thereof' was released in July 2009, and he quickly made his mark with a little help from Radio 1 DJ Gilles Peterson.
Despite only beginning his musical career in 2009, James Blake has already reeled in the critical acclaim, from radio DJ's to industry professionals. After signing with R&S Records James Blake released 'CMYK' in 2010, which quickly became Nick Grimshaw's Record of the Week. Then, after various Radio 1 DJs giving him recognition (and airtime) his cover of 'Limit To Your Love' originally by Feist became Zane Lowe's 'Hottest Record in the World'.
On 6 December 2010 the BBC announced that he had been nominated for their 'Sound of 2011' poll, then on 15 December he was voted runner-up behind Jessie J at the 'Critics' Choice for the BRIT Awards 2011'. As well as this, James Blake made it onto many 2010 year-end-best-of lists, with his single 'CMYK' ranking 24th on Frontier Psychiatrist's top 40 songs of the year and the Bells Sketch/CMYK/Klavierwerke EPs ranking 8th on Pitchfork's top 50 albums of 2010.
