Frontier Touring are thrilled to confirm that UK crooner Calum Scott, the man behind one of the world’s most recognisable and loved renditions of Robyn’s ‘Dancing On My Own’, will play an exclusive New Zealand show.
Scott’s heartwarming appearance on Britain’s Got Talent in 2015 shot him to instant global stardom, and when he officially released his audition song ‘Dancing On My Own’ as the lead single from his debut album Only Human, it took the world by storm. The track quickly accumulated more than 6.5 million worldwide sales, reached Platinum status in New Zealand and saw the former recruitment officer from Hull nominated for the Brit Award for British Single Of The Year.
Only Human is the result of a long, cathartic songwriting journey. Filled with deeply personal material, Scott’s ability to transform pain into beauty is undeniable, whether he is addressing coming out to his father, unrequited longing, adolescent isolation, or the gratitude he feels toward his sister Jade, who pushed him to sing on stage for the first time and auditioned alongside him on Britain’s Got Talent.
Scott’s elegantly sculpted pop centres on his soulful vocals and heartfelt lyrics, exemplified in gently uplifting single ‘You Are The Reason, aching piano ballad ‘Hotel Room’ and hit single ‘Rhythm Inside’. The singer’s ability to consistently build on his gift for poignant, emotionally charged performances is a sure sign of the lasting impact the Englishman will continue to have on all who hear his voice. To experience it in the flesh is unmissable.
‘Scott’s stunningly pure voice is affecting enough in itself, but his lyrics on every one of the (album’s) tracks are vulnerable and raw.’ - Billboard
‘With Only Human, (Calum Scott) makes an impressive splash… a compelling debut album.’ - Huffington Post
2018 has certainly been a significant year for the 29-year-old as he took his upbeat yet deceptively anguished balladry on the road for his first headline tour across the UK and Europe in May. This October, it’s our turn.
‘[‘No Matter What’] left concert goers captivated as Scott’s voice radiated throughout a silent crowd. Upon finishing the song, Scott couldn’t hold his emotions back and walked to the back of the stage to dry his eyes as he received one of the biggest ovations of the night.’ – The Courier Online
Fans down under are in for a treat when Calum Scott plays New Zealand! Don’t sleep on your chance to pick up tickets to one of Britain’s most in-demand performers.
