BRIT Award-winning, multi-platinum selling musician George Ezra has added a massive outdoor show on the Yorkshire coast to his 2022 UK and Ireland Tour.
George – whose new album Gold Rush Kid is released next month via Columbia Records – will play Scarborough Open Air Theatre on Friday September 23.
George is one of the UK’s most acclaimed songwriters and live performers.
After two blockbuster albums – Wanted On Voyage (2014) and Staying At Tamara’s (2018), both of which reached Number 1 in the UK and sold millions around the world – it was time to return to heart and hearth and create another stunning album written and produced entirely in London with longstanding collaborator Joel Pott.
The Gold Rush Kid is released on June 10 and includes the hit singles Anyone For You and Green Green Grass which George and his band performed on the red carpet to open this year’s Bafta TV Awards.
Under 25's require ID to purchase alcohol. Under 14's must be accompanied by an adult over 18 at all times.
Meet the Gold Rush Kid.
He’s toured the world, toured it some more, then met himself coming back the other way. He’s felt the green, green grass under his feet and the blue, blue sky on his back. A traveller, an entertainer, he’s a man in pursuit of happiness, and of sharing that happiness. Aided and abetted by an eight-piece musical band of brothers and sisters, he’s bounced from Budapest to Barcelona to, more recently, far Manila.
The Kid knows that to come home, he has to go away, but that each makes the other all the sweeter. As for the gold rush, it’s not the destination, it’s the journey. It’s the power of positivity, the sugar-rush of hope, the promise of uplift. And in 2022, who doesn’t want – need – that?
“The Gold Rush Kid? That’s me,” says George Ezra, reflecting on the title of his third record – a 12-strong suite of songs, produced by long standing wingman Joel Pott, that “sound like me. That’s what ties them together.” After two blockbuster albums – Wanted On Voyage (2014) and Staying At Tamara’s (2018), both of which sold by the truckload round the world, and the latter of which won him the 2019 Brit Award for British Male Solo Artist – it was time to return to heart and hearth, with an album written and produced entirely in London.
