Tickets to all Sam’s UK Arena dates in 2022 – including two Homecoming shows in Newcastle and two nights at Wembley Arena – sold out as soon as they go on sale.

It’s been an incredible year for the North Shields musical superstar, hailed as one of the most original songwriters of his generation.

Last year saw the release of Sam’s second number one album in the UK, the very open, honest and intensely personal Seventeen below.

And just last month, Sam received the 2022 Brit Award for Best British Alternative/Rock Band, to add to his Critics’ Choice Award 2019.

His flagship Scarborough OAT date – the Yorkshire Coast Arena’s opening show in 2022 – will start an action-packed summer for Sam which includes festival slots at Tramlines, Truck and Victorious, and another massive outdoor spectacle at London’s Finsbury Park.
