Sam Smith has kicked off his Australian and New Zealand tour in Auckland and fans can expect to be treated to a show completely focused on Smith’s number one album ‘In The Lonely Hour’.

Smith has centred the entire show around the album playing songs from the various editions of the record released around the world. His only cover is the Richard Rodgers classic ‘My Funny Valentine’.

Since its release in May 2014, ‘In The Lonely Hour’ has continued to be one of the world’s biggest selling albums. In the UK, Smith’s debut sold 20,000 more than Coldplay’s ‘Ghost Stories’ in the same week forcing the Coldplay album into a number two debut.

In Australia, the album debut at number two behind Coldplay ‘Ghost Stories’. Coldplay had just visited Australia for a promo tour.

In the USA, ‘In The Lonely Hour’ achieved a rare feat for 2015. It sold over one million copies and was the third biggest seller of 2014 in America behind Taylor Swift ‘1989’ and the ‘Frozen’ soundtrack.

The album won ‘Best Pop Vocal Album’ and was nominated for ‘Album of the Year’ at the 2015 Grammy Awards.

‘In The Lonely Hour’ has now sold over 7.5 million copies worldwide.
