2015 Announces March UK headline tour dates
Following the release of his recent single ‘Illuminate’ ft. Years & Years, Tourist is pleased to announce a short run of UK headline shows in March.
2014 was an incredible year for Tourist, aka Will Phillips, with a charge led by his incredible debut EP ‘Patterns’ released on Method Records and featuring Lianne La Havas and Will Heard. Before the year was out Tourist had been nominated for a Grammy Award for his co-write on the Sam Smith anthem ‘Stay With Me’ and subsequently announced his biggest single to date and his first official release on Polydor – ‘Illuminate’ – which was B listed at Radio 1 and reached #3 on the iTunes Electronic chart, and featured label-mates and recent BBC Sound Poll winners Years & Years.
Last year he also introduced his widely acclaimed live show – playing spot shows throughout the year before joining the Annie Mac Presents tour in December which culminated with sold out show at 5000 capacity Brixton Academy. With slots already confirmed at Coachella and Sonar festivals later on this year, it is now time for some headline shows and in March Tourist will play a three-stop tour kicking off in Brighton on 10th, stopping in London’s Oslo on the 12th before finishing in Manchester on the 13th.
