English singer-songwriter & Grammy Award Winner Sam Smith will bring his 2015 North American Concert Tour to AmericanAirlines Arena on Monday, July 20, 2015 at 8:00 PM.
Capitol Records recording artist Sam Smith will return to North America this summer for his second arena/theatre tour of 2015. His hugely successful winter tour included sold-out shows at New York Citys Madison Square Garden and the Forum in Los Angeles. In a live review, The New York Times Jon Pareles noted, His sound is startling When he sings a melisma, the pitches are as clearly delineated as keys on a piano. Billboard praised the sold-out opening night show in Atlanta as nothing short of triumphant and the Toronto Sun reported that while Smith charmed audience at the sold-out Air Canada Centre with his soul-baring, between-songs stories, he mostly let his beautiful voice do the talking.
Smiths four GRAMMY wins set a record, marking the most awards ever received by a U.K. artist following the release of a debut album. In The Lonely Hour, which has sold more than five million units worldwide, received the award for Best Pop Vocal Album. It reclaimed the No. 1 position on the U.K. album chart in the week following the awards and is currently in the Top 5 of the Billboard 200. Smiths No. 1 single Stay With Me, which is RIAA-certified 4x multi-Platinum, has won awards for both Record and Song of the Year and Smith was named Best New Artist.
