Bedfordshire-bred, singer-songwriter Tom Grennan will perform live to fans around the world on Friday 2nd October in an exclusive virtual gig streamed from the legendary London venue, O2 Academy Brixton.
After selling out the venue previously upon the release of his debut UK top five LP ‘Lighting Matches’, this virtual show is set to be a very different, but special, return for Tom and his fans. The show is set to include brand new material, along with new singles such as ‘This Is The Place’, and fan favourites like ‘Found What I’ve Been Looking For’ and ‘Royal Highness’.
The twenty-five-old said, “Nothing can replace the thrill of live music, especially in a venue as iconic as O2Academy Brixton. I have loved playing there in the past and I can’t wait to get on the stage again with MelodyVR and bring you a taste of the new album. I am putting together something really special for everyone at home who I’ve missed so much.”
Tom released ‘Lighting Matches’, his breakthrough debut LP, in 2018. It was one of the best-selling albums of the year and reached the UK Top Five. It cemented Tom as one of Britain’s most exciting and important new artists, winning over thousands of fans at festivals, and putting on sold-out UK tours.
The virtual show will give fans the chance, as they would have done in May 2020 had it not been postponed, to hear classics such as ‘Something In The Water’, as well as new material from the highly anticipated, and soon to be announced, second album. It will be a treat for Grennan’s fans all across the world, in a time where there hasn’t been much to shout about.
