Grammy Award-winning artist Sam Smith is set to kick off the South East Asian leg of their “GLORIA the Tour” in Bangkok later on this year, delighting legions of fans in Thailand yet again with a high energy live show to support their latest album that came out in January.
The singer’s fourth album “Gloria,” featuring guests such as Ed Sheeran and Calvin Harris, is rooted in a newfound sense of liberation. Gloria is the name of an energy (one which is possibly feminine, or possibly of nature) Smith says has been freed inside themself, since coming out as non-binary, and so, no longer identifying exclusively as a man or a woman.
Multi-platinum-selling Smith, who uses they/them pronouns, will make a triumphant return to the Thai capital on Tuesday, October 3, 2023 when their highly-anticipated tour comes to IMPACT Arena, Muang Thong Thani, after performing at the same venue back in 2018.
Sam Smith is celebrated for their unique and emotive music style that combines soul, pop and R&B: Smith’s distinctive, angelic voice and emotionally-charged lyrics revolve around love, heartbreak and identity, capturing the hearts of fans all over the world. Their stirring high tenor range has seen them become one of pop music’s most in-demand balladeers.
Their rise to stardom began in 2012, when they featured on “Latch” by DJ duo Disclosure, which reached No. 11 on the UK Singles Chart. 2013 was the year of Naughty Boy’s “La La La” release, a huge hit which got to number 1 on the music charts of 26 countries in total.
It was Smith’s debut studio album, “In the Lonely Hour,” which granted them their place in music’s realm of superstardom. Released in 2014, it proved to be a massive success, with the moving “Stay With Me” topping charts worldwide, selling more than 10 million copies.
“I’m Not the Only One” was also on Sam’s first album, gaining more than 1.5 billion Spotify streams. The British star’s musical journey continued with “Too Good at Goodbyes” which appeared on their second album “The Thrill of It All,” as well as their superb collaboration with Kim Petras “Unholy,” a standout smash which features on current hit album, “Gloria.”
Anyone attending Sam’s Bangkok show is sure to have an unforgettable evening, as they have the privilege of witnessing musical history being made before their very eyes. Their concerts are full of soulful melodies and raw emotion, where every heartfelt lyric echoes.
