Tokio Myers (real name Torville Jones), who stormed to victory on Britain’s Got Talent earlier this year, will be touring the UK in April 2018. Originally scheduled for five shows from 4 – 10 April, today he’s added a string of six more dates from 13 – 20 April at venues in Bristol, Liverpool, Leeds, Manchester, Cambridge and London.
Having previously supported Amy Winehouse and Kanye West, Myers is man on a path to worldwide success. His debut album, Our Generation, came out last Friday. Fusing the classical music he fell in love with as a child with the beats and textures of dance music, he’s created a truly unique sound – one that’s both progressive and timeless. Tracks such as Bloodstream, Mercy and Angel (listen to it below) soar with dynamic power and range.
“With the album, I’ve really tried to knock down those walls,” said Myers, “and bring classical and contemporary elements together. I’ve been hugely influenced by the ’90s dance scene, by bands such as Faithless and Massive Attack. There was a magic to that era, and I wanted to capture that and bring it up to date for our times.”
Here are Myers’ newly added 2018 dates:
Friday 13 April – O2 Academy, Bristol
Sunday 15 April – Philharmonic Hall, Liverpool
Tuesday 17 April – O2 Academy, Leeds
Wednesday 18 April – Albert Hall, Manchester
Thursday 19 April – Corn Exchange, Cambridge
Friday 20 April – O2 Forum Kentish Town, London
