Sam Smith treated fans in Australia to his final promo show before he starts his world tour in Sheffield, England in March.

Smith will tour the UK and Europe and then North America before coming back to Australia in November. Fans in Australia were treated to an intimate 12 song setlist at Melbourne Town Hall on Friday 19 January 2018.

Smith was up for a chat with fans during the show. “True love is never a waste of time. Give your love away guys, every day”, he said, before beginning ‘Palace’.

He said ‘Palace’ was his only positive song. “This next one is the only positive love song I’ve ever written. This is that song where you just started seeing someone and you’re falling for them and you really love them, but you want them to say it first.”

Geraint Davies COO of iHeartRadio Australia said: “Sam Smith is an incredibly talented artist and it’s an honour to be part of the team, along with EMI and Optus, that gave his dedicated fans, and some well know faces like Magda Szubanski and Cathy Freeman, the chance to see him perform in such an intimate environment. The Australian public obviously loves Sam and his music, it’s great to see he’s added additional dates to his upcoming tour.”

Sam Smith fans won tickets to the show from via iHeartRadio.com.au and by listening to the KIIS Network – Melbourne’s KIIS 101.1, Sydney’s KIIS 1065, Brisbane’s 97.3FM and Adelaide’s MIX 102.3.

ARN’s National Content Director Duncan Campbell said: “This was an excellent way to kick off what is going to be a fantastic year for ARN in Melbourne. KIIS 101.1’s new Breakfast team of Jase & PJ brought a great energy to their hosting role at the event and of course Sam Smith gave a brilliant performance for his Melbourne fans. I am excited that KIIS 101.1 and iHeartRadio in partnership with EMI and Optus could give Sam’s fans the chance to see their favourite artist up close in such a unique venue as Melbourne Town Hall.

Sam told fans he will see them again in Australia and New Zealand in November. “I can’t believe we’ve already sold out some shows, I’m so excited to tour here.”
