John Newman has announced his ‘The Out Of The Blue’ tour, which will take place across the UK in numerous intimate venues this summer.
Joined by a stripped back band, John will be returning to his roots by headlining smaller venues where he can properly connect with his fans once more. He will be performing a mixture of new and unheard songs in addition to the songs we know and love him for, including ‘Love Me Again’ and ‘Feelings’.
Kicking off in York on June 30, the tour will stop off in cities and towns including Dundee, Leeds, Cardiff, Guildford, Bath and Margate before finishing off in Hull on July 28. According to an official press release, fans will need to keep their eye on John’s socials as he will be turning up to the venues in a camper van to perform and meet fans at the intimate venues.

Speaking about the tour, John said: “I’ve really missed being in smaller venues; real, honest, up-close gigs like the ones I used to play when i first started out. Thinking back to those days, I decided to strip everything back to the core – voice, guitar and songs.
“The thought of just turning up to these venues in parts of the country off the beaten touring circuit was very appealing to me. The big festival appearances and arena shows are amazing and I love doing them but there’s something incredible about performing in a small room where you can actually look the audience in the eye and feel that energy.
“The fans will also get to hear new songs that I’ve been saving up, as well as the ones they know. I’ve called it The Out Of The Blue Tour because I want that feeling of just turning up somewhere, setting up and playing a great show. I’m really excited about this and can’t wait to get out there.”
