Global superstar Sam Smith will be bringing GLORIA the tour to Spark Arena in November!

Touring in support of their fourth studio album Gloria (out Friday 27 January), the long-awaited tour will be their first live show in New Zealand since 2018. The upcoming 13-track album will be their boldest statement yet and comes off the back of the huge success of the single, 'Unholy' featuring Kim Petras. The smash hit has surpassed 1.3 billion streams globally. 

“It feels like emotional, sexual and spiritual liberation” declares the most confident and creatively fulfilled version of Sam Smith the world has yet encountered. “It feels like I’ve got my faith back, in my job. So it was beautiful, with this album, to sing freely again, for me. It feels like a coming of age”.  

Where Gloria is a pop album of sorts, it’s also progressive pop-art, from a pioneering, defiant, state-of-the-art pop star to be proud of. “There is craftsmanship in what I do, and truth and real expression”, says Sam. “My diva album? I think so! I’ve finally let my Gloria out.”

Since their No.1 debut album In The Lonely Hour (2014), Smith has amassed a constellation of glittering achievements: 36 million albums sold, 250 million singles, 49 billion multi-platform streams, four Grammys, three BRITs, a Golden Globe, one Oscar, two No.1 albums and five No.1 singles. 

Sam’s catalogue of smash hits include, ‘Too Good At Goodbyes’, ‘I’m Not The Only One’, ‘Dancing With A Stranger’ with Normani, ‘Fire On Fire’, ‘Stay With Me’, ‘Like I Can’, ‘Love Me More’, ‘Diamonds’, ‘How Do You Sleep?’, ‘Pray ft. Logic’, ‘Love Goes’, ‘To Die For’ and ‘Unholy’ with Kim Petras.   

With the release of Gloria, the new album and GLORIA the tour, it’s going to be an unstoppable 2023 for Sam. Don’t miss Sam Smith live! Tickets go on sale at 12pm, Wed 18 Jan 2023 from Ticketmaster.
