Halsey announces biggest UK tour to date

The singer-songwriter comes to these shores in March 2020.

Award-winning singer-songwriter Halsey has announced details of a forthcoming UK arena tour.

The new run of dates kicks off in Glasgow on 7 March 2020, before heading to London, Dublin and Manchester.

Support at the shows comes from Manchester alt-pop makers Pale Waves.

The tour will be in support of Halsey’s brand new highly anticipated third studio album Manic, due for release on 17 January 2020 through Capitol Records.

Last year the star released the debut single from the new record, Without Me. The track, which interpolates Justin Timberlake’s hit Cry Me A River peaked at No.3 on the Official UK Singles Chart.

The singer-songwriter followed the release of Without Me with the standalone single 11 Minutes featuring Yungblud and Travis Barker, and Nightmare.

Earlier this month Halsey dropped the forthcoming album’s second single Graveyard, alongside a time-lapse video for the track showcasing her artistic talent. Check it out below:

Halsey first came to widespread public attention in 2015 with her breakthrough debut album Badlands.

Featuring the singles Ghost, New Americana, Colors and Castle, the record was a huge commercial and critical success, quickly establishing the New Jersey-born musician as one of the most exciting artists in music.

After the release of her debut, her profile was further boosted by featuring on The Chainsmoker’s 2016 smash hit single Closer. The song topped the charts in the US for 12 consecutive weeks, and at the time of writing is currently the third most-streamed song of all time on Spotify.

Following the success of Closer, Halsey released her sophomore LP Hopeless Fountain Kingdom in 2017, spawning the singles Now Or Never, Bad At Love and Alone. 

A frequent collaborator, Halsey has teamed up to release music with artists such as Justin Bieber, Khalid, Post Malone, Benny Blanco and BTS.

The last time Halsey performed in the UK was back in June 2019, for a one-off intimate show at Camden’s Electric Ballroom.

Halsey will return to these shores next year for a run of headline arena dates in support of new album Manic. 

Here are the dates:

7 March 2020 – The SSE Hydro, Glasgow
8 March 2020 – The O2, London
10 March 2020 – 3Arena, Dublin
12 March 2020 – Manchester Arena

Tickets for the newly announced tour will be available from 9:00 on Friday 27 September 2019 through Ticketmaster.co.uk
