Our weekly round up of this week's biggest new tours, shows and events.
Troye Sivan has confirmed his biggest ever UK tour in support his most recent album, the critically acclaimed Bloom.
The new dates kick off in Glasgow on 23 February 2019, taking in shows in Manchester and Birmingham before concluding at London’s Eventim Apollo on 28 February 2019.
A modern pop phenomenon, Troye broke through in 2015 with his debut album Blue Neighbourhood. The record, which features the singles Wild, Youth, Talk Me Down and Heaven, has gone silver in the UK, and The Guardian gave Blue Neighbourhood five stars out of five in a glowing review.
Troye announced the title of his follow-up album whilst appearing on stage as a special guest on the Pasadena date of Taylor Swift’s Reputation stadium tour. The hotly anticipated record, titled Bloom, was released in August 2018. The album, which features guests appearances from Gordi and pop megastar Ariana Grande, is the singer’s highest charting record to date, debuting at No.10 on the Official UK Albums Chart.
An artist for the streaming generation, Troye currently has over 16 million monthly Spotify listeners. Alongside a hugely successful career in music, the young Australian is also an accomplished actor and is set to star in the upcoming film Boy Erased alongside Nicole Kidman and Russell Crowe. Troye has also appeared on the front of magazines such as Clash, Wonderland, ASOS, Attitude, Rolling Stone, Out and V Magazine.
