It has been an incredible 12 months for North Shields’ latest, greatest son – rightly hailed as one of the most cherished and original songwriters of his generation.

Last year saw the release of Sam’s second UK Number One Album, the bruisingly open, honest and intensely personal Seventeen Going Under.

Sam, last month, received the 2022 Brit Award for Best British Alternative/Rock Act, to add to his 2019 Critics' Choice Award and he is now ready to bring his high-octane live show to massive stages around the UK.

His Scarborough OAT headline date – the Yorkshire coast arena’s opening show of 2022 – will begin an incredible summer for Sam which includes headline festival slots at Tramlines, Truck and Victorious, and another massive outdoor show at London’s Finsbury Park.

Other shows lined up at the OAT include Tears for Fears, Alison Moyet and Lionel Ritchie.
