(New York – June 20, 2016) Tom Odell today announces his upcoming fall North American tour, kicking off October 3rd in Philadelphia and wrapping October 21st in Vancouver with stops in New York, Los Angeles, Washington, DC and more. He has also announced a free show on June 30th in New York City’s Madison Square Park in advance of his autumn headlining tour. The UK Telegraph wrote of Odell’s recent London show that he was “electrifying…with a big, bold, bravura performance … a whole layer of charismatic rock swagger…Odell might be the missing link between showboating Seventies Elton and the epic emotionalism of Coldplay. In a set where new songs were greeted just as rapturously as old favourites, Odell did more than enough to suggest …his (Brit) Critics Choice Award might not be his last.”
For more information about his free show in New York City in Madison Square Park on June 30th, please go to madisonsquarepark.org.
Tickets for his fall tour will be available on sale June 24th. Click here for more information and to purchase tickets.
This announcement comes on the heels of Odell’s second album WRONG CROWD debuting at #2 on the UK album chart, #2 on the U.S. Alternative New Artist chart, #8 on the U.S. New Artist chart and on top 10 on iTunes in over 20 countries this week. WRONG CROWD has been met with much critical acclaim – Q Magazine in a 4 star review calls his single “’Magnetised’ — thrillingly melodic… and (the album) a home run…victorious; People Magazine continues Odell “solidifies his sound” on WRONG CROWD, The Wall Street Journal describes him as “soulful” and Wonderland writes of Odell’s “triumphant return.”
Tom will be performing his current single “Magnetised” on “The Today Show” on June 29th. Leading into album release in the US, Tom performed on “The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon” (Click here to watch), as well as on “The Late Late Show With James Corden” (click to watch his performance and chat).
WRONG CROWD is the follow up to Odell’s 2013’s million selling, #1 UK debuting album Long Way Down. Long Way Down, also met with tremendous critical reaction and earned him the highly prestigious Ivor Novello Award for Songwriter of the Year and the Brits Critics’ Choice Award.
WRONG CROWD was co-produced by Tom Odell and Jim Abbiss, who has also produced records for artists including Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, and Adele.
His previous album Long Way Down saw Tom Odell accomplish many milestones: winning the Brits Critics’ Choice Award in 2013 at the age of 22 with his debut album, receiving the prestigious Ivor Novello Award for Songwriter of the Year in 2014, being nominated for two more Brit awards in 2014 for Best Male and Best Newcomer, and touring extensively across the world and opening for Billy Joel on several U.S. dates. Tom garnered over 200 million cumulative views on YouTube, and accumulated 8 Gold and 2 Platinum certifications around the world. His singles “Another Love” and “Real Love” both hit the UK Top 10, with the latter, a cover of a track by The Beatles – used for the UK John Lewis’ Christmas TV 2014 ad campaign.
