Better grab your tissues, Australia. James Blunt, the man known for his powerful ballads of love and heartbreak, is coming back down under next year.
Playing both arenas and winery dates in Australia and New Zealand, Blunt’s announcement comes off the back of his recently released and critically acclaimed sixth album, Once Upon A Mind.
“I’m back where I started,” Blunt said of his new album.
“Writing songs for me and the people around me. And I’m free again.”
Fans first fell in love with Blunt 15 years ago when he released his blockbuster 2004 debut album Back to Bedlam. This album featured arguably his most famous song, You’re Beautiful.
The five-time Grammy Award nominee and BRIT Award winner will perform headline shows in Melbourne, Sydney, Auckland and Christchurch next November. He is known for his hits like Goodbye My Lover and 1973.
And there’s even more good news! Blunt will be joined at all of his Australian concerts by two-time Grammy Award winning singer-songwriter Jason Mraz.
Mraz – known for his record-breaking hit I’m Yours and other songs like I Won’t Give Up – has previously toured with Blunt in the US, Canada, the UK and Ireland, with the pair sharing stages since 2005.
