Frontier Touring are delighted to announce British singer songwriter Calum Scott will return to Australia and New Zealand for the first time since 2018, playing shows in Perth, Melbourne, Sydney, Brisbane, and Auckland this November.
“This year couldn’t really get any better and then I go ahead and release headline tour dates in Australia and New Zealand..! Literally cannot wait to be back in two countries I never thought I’d have the opportunity to visit let alone have my own show in - mind blown! I am coming with my band, with brand new music and with the same love for these countries that I left with in 2018. After the last few years we’ve all had, I promise these shows are going to be magic.”
Calum Scott's latest single ‘If You Ever Change Your Mind’ is about the pain of heartbreak and lost love, with undertones of hopefulness throughout that make it a beautiful and touching ballad. Taken from his yet to be announced sophomore album due for release later this year, he gave fans a taste of what to expect with earlier releases ‘Biblical’ and ‘Rise’, which both debuted in 2021, three years after the release of his first full-length record Only Human.
While best known for his slow tempo tracks and breathtaking vocal range, Calum’s musical catalogue has expanded since his last AU and NZ visit. With two huge house music collaborations added to his repertoire in the past year he put his melodic vocals to superb use on the ARIA Platinum certified ‘Where Are You Now’ – the #1 Australian Radio Chart smash by Belgian DJ Lost Frequencies that hit #5 on the ARIA Singles Chart – and ‘Rain In Ibiza’, the three-way anthemic collaboration between German Dj Felix Jaehn, The Stickmen Project, and Calum. In 2019, Scott teamed up with Felix Jaehn on the summer dance hit ‘Love On Myself’.
Calum Scott became a household name after competing on Britain’s Got Talent in 2015 where he auditioned with a perfectly stripped back cover of Robyn’s ‘Dancing On My Own’. The performance earned him an emotional standing ovation from the audience and judging panel, including a golden buzzer from Simon Cowell. His ‘golden-boy’ status continued when he independently released his cover of ‘Dancing On My Own’ which peaked at #2 on both the ARIA and UK Singles Charts. The now ARIA 11x Platinum certified single also reached #1 in six countries, became Britian’s best-selling single of the summer 2016 and earned him a coveted nomination for British Single of the Year at the 2017 Brit Awards.
The track was later added to his debut album, Only Human, which was released in 2018 following his signing to Capitol Records. The debut record hit No.1 on the iTunes album chart in 21 countries across the globe and housed 15 soulful tracks packed with deeply reflective and personal lyrics, as well as both the original cover and a remix of ‘Dancing On My Own’ by Dutch DJ and producer Tiësto.
Some of the most beloved singles from this album include ‘Rhythm Inside’, ‘You Are The Reason’, ‘What I Miss Most’, and ‘If Our Love Is Wrong’, which explore the feelings of liberation and self-acceptance that Calum says accompanied his coming out journey, along with past experiences of love and heartbreak.
