James Blunt Announces 2024 Australian Tour

Self-aware adult-contemporary singer-songwriter James Blunt will return to Australia for a run of arena shows in November 2024. The tour will mark Blunt’s first since 2018, and is in support of his seventh studio album, Who We Used to Be, which was released in October.

Blunt had previously planned to visit Australia in 2020 in support of his 2019 album, Once Upon a Mind, on a co-headline run with Jason Mraz. The tour was ultimately cancelled, however, due to COVID-19 restrictions.

James Blunt – ‘Goodbye My Lover’

“Australia, I’m coming to get you,” said Blunt in a press statement announcing the tour. “It’s been a few years since I last toured Down Under, and you’ve always been like a second home to me. I cannot wait to be touring there again and playing for some of the best audiences in the world.”

Blunt first toured Australia in 2006 around the peak of his popularity, following the release of his 2005 debut album, Back to Bedlam. In addition to his signature song, ‘You’re Beautiful’, that album contained the hits ‘Goodbye My Lover’ (#3 in Australia) and ‘Wise Men’ (#11 in Australia).

The album topped the charts locally, selling over 670,000 units and going nine times platinum – a feat only surpassed in his native Britain, where it did so 11 times. The UK singer was also based in Australia for a time, serving as a judge on The X Factor Australia in 2015 alongside Chris Isaak, Guy Sebastian and Dannii Minogue.
