2016 UK & IRISH TOUR ANNOUNCED
Includes London show at The Forum
“Rather lovely… Gabrielle Aplin pens languid, soulful contemplation” – Mojo
“She’s a real contender now” 4/5– Q
“Set to see her shine again” – The Independent
“An acoustic queen for the digital age” – GQ
“Effortlessly switching form sultry, hypnotic sounds to more upbeat jazz melodies, Gabrielle Aplin’s second album is exactly what we wanted to hear” 5/5 – Glamour
Following the positive reception that has greeted her new album, ‘Light Up The Dark’, Gabrielle Aplin can now confirm a major UK & Irish tour that includes a London show at the The Forum in Kentish Town.
‘Light Up The Dark’ adds a new chapter to a career that has already delivered 80 million Spotify streams, 90 million YouTube views, 1.5 million record sales and No.1 chart positions in both the UK and Australia over the course of the campaign for her 2013 debut album, ‘English Rain’.
‘Light Up The Dark’ has already received extensive BBC Radio 1 support with a playlist for the album’s title track (as well as Huw Stephens’ Hottest Record) followed by a second playlist for latest single ‘Sweet Nothing’.
The new album was inspired by Joni Mitchell as well as the production on Feist’s ‘The Reminder’; “Her voice is just here, right at the front, and everything sits around it perfectly,” says Aplin. “I’ve also become much more comfortable writing songs about other people’s stories as well as my own, much of which is inspired by travelling and everything I’ve seen since my first album.”
Gabrielle’s recent warm-up show at London’s Wilton’s Music Hall sold-out in less than 24 hours. The Evening Standard’s review drew comparisons with Florence + The Machine and Feist, and concluded that it was “A mini-triumph; greater ones will come.”
Following a Main Stage slot at this year’s Bestival, Gabrielle and her band are about to play a selection of completely sold-out UK dates which include London’s Village Underground (on September 30th).
Gabrielle Aplin will return at the start of 2016 for the following new dates:
28th – Manchester, Albert Hall
29th – Liverpool, O2 Academy
30th – Leeds, O2 Academy
1st – Edinburgh, Liquid Rooms
