March 29, 2019

SOUTH AFRICA – what a week 😳 it’s been completely mad … I can’t quite believe that I played to over 200,000 people 😮😮😮 What a lucky boy !!

Not only that but all four gigs were absolute belters and you were just the kindest crowds !!

As a result we’ve arranged to come back in NOVEMBER 🙃🙃

Now … these are pretty big gigs …. arenas in fact …. I’m kind of nervous to put on such big shows but the response over the last few days has been so amazing that we decided to go for it 😮😎😶

Please please spread the word if you can …. tell your mates and share this post around ….

General sale will be on Wednesday at 9am from www.passengermusic.com/live

Thank you all so so much for making me feel so welcome and I genuinely can’t wait to come back and see you all again !!

Loads of love !!

Restless Wind (Official Video) – South American Tour Footage

March 18, 2019

SOUTH AMERICA and MEXICO – I’m not really sure what to say . The last five weeks have been the most incredible adventure and genuinely one of the best and most enjoyable tours I’ve ever been a part of .

Its always been a dream of mine to spend time in this part of the world and the fact that I got to come here with some of my best friends and play music makes me feel so unbelievably lucky .

We’ve been blown away by the warmth and kindness that we’ve encountered . Every crowd has been so passionate and engaged .

We will definitely be back , and as soon as possible .

In the meantime , here is a little video of our time here . Watching it back makes me realise just how much we’ve seen and done in such a short amount of time ….

The song is “restless wind” – its been around for a few years now but it just felt like the right soundtrack to this phenomenal journey .

A huge thank you to Jarrad Seng , Stu Larsen , Ed Sheeran and his amazing crew , thomas , Ian , simon , Roxy , Marcos , dan , bek and fran . Thank you all so much for working so hard and making this happen . I love you all .

Thanks also to all of our teams in South America !!

Please feel free to share this video around as much as you can .

Next up …. Three days at home / in bed / cuddling my cats and then ….. SOUTH AFRICA !!!!!!

So much love and thanks .

South American Tour – Live in Lima, Perù

March 15, 2019

PERU 🇵🇪 what a beautiful couple of days . I feel so lucky to have seen a tiny snapshot of this amazing place and the concert – although very warm 🥵 – was absolutely wonderful !! To come to a country for the first time and sell out a show is humbling . Thank you for being so friendly and generous and I look forward to seeing you all again one day 😊

South American Tour – Live in Montevideo, Uruguay

March 9, 2019

URUGUAY – it’s difficult to know what to say . It’s hard to put in to words how it feels to be accepted by a country in the way that you have accepted me .

Since coming here a few weeks ago with Ed Sheeran the support and love that You guys have shown has been like nothing I’ve ever experienced before .

It was a risk to organise a last minute headline show here … it was a lot of work and meant re routing the tour , changing flights and hotels etc and having faith that if we did it that it would work out .

Not only did it work out but the show (and then the second show) both sold out in under 5 minutes ….
I’ve never done two concerts in a day before …. i didn’t think it was possible … but both shows were truly spectacular . Honestly two of the very best that I can remember and your energy as a crowd made it so easy .
What happened yesterday is something that I will remember forever .

I really hope we can come back again soon – I’ll let you guys know when there is any news on that . In the meantime just know that I am so hugely grateful for everything .

All my love .
