James Blunt announces 2022 Greatest Hits tour

'You're Beautiful' singer to perform throughout February
James Blunt has announced a massive Greatest Hits tour for 2022, alongside a greatest hits album. Tickets go on presale at 10am on Wednesday 21 July, before heading on general sale at 10am on Friday 23 July.
Famed for acoustic ballad 'You're Beautiful', Blunt has gone on to release six studio albums. His latest release Once Upon A Mind came out in 2019 and marked a move into dance-inflected club anthems alongside his usual soft rock trappings.
This tour will be in support of his career-spanning greatest hits collection The Stars Beneath My Feet (2004-2021), which will be released on Friday 19 November. James says, 'Amazingly, I'm releasing my Greatest Hits. I wanted to call it Greatest Hit (& Songs I Wish You'd Heard), but the good people at Atlantic Records suggested I call it something more sensible, so it's called The Stars Beneath My Feet.
'If you'd ever wished that James Blunt had only ever released one album – this is that album. It's 30 awesome songs, including live performances from Glastonbury and elsewhere, and four new songs. To celebrate its release, I'll be heading out to tour the world all next year. I can't wait to see you then.'
The pop balladeer has also become well known for his acerbic and quick-witted Twitter feed just as much as his amiable tunes. He most recently shared a photo of himself with former One Direction star Harry Styles, signalling a potential future collaboration.
