Sam Smith has announced the North American dates for The Thrill Of It All tour, including a stop at Xcel Energy Center on Tuesday, Aug. 14.
Sam Smith's sophomore album, The Thrill Of It All, was released on Nov. 3, 2017. "Too Good At Goodbyes," the album's first single, is a global smash, hitting No. 1 on the U.K. and Global Spotify Charts and topping the U.K. and U.S. iTunes charts.
Released in June 2014, Smith's In The Lonely Hour was the biggest selling U.K. male debut in the SoundScan era and went on to sell 13 million adjusted albums worldwide. In Feb. 2015, Smith set a GRAMMY® record, winning a total of four awards - the most ever received by a U.K. artist following the release of a debut album. He was named Best New Artist, In The Lonely Hour took Best Pop Vocal Album honors and his single "Stay With Me" won awards for both Record and Song of the Year. Smith has also earned an Oscar, a Golden Globe, three Billboard Music Awards and three BRIT Awards.
