Singer James Blunt is coming back to Prague. The author of such hits as “You’re Beautiful”, “Goodbye My Lover” or “Wisemen” is set to perform on March 6th 2020 in the Tipsport arena in Prague. The performance will be part of his upcoming tour, accompanying the “Once Upon A Mind” album – a brand new throwback to his songwriting roots. The musician who managed to dominate Europe and later become the first UK artist since Elton John’s “Candle In The Wind” to hit #1 in USA charts, has an interesting story. He trained at the military academy and served in the Kosovo war-zone. After leaving the army, he recorded is debut album “Back to Bedlam” which quickly became one of the best-selling albums in the UK. Since then, his fans have purchased more than 23 million records worldwide. Tickets for the Prague show will be available through the Ticketlive and Ticketportal networks from September 6th.
“After experimenting with an electronic sound on his last record, Blunt returns with a new album ‘Once Upon A Time‘ where he shows off what he does best. Has has written some classic heart-felt songs, such as the fresh single ‘Cold‘. Blunt promises to offer classic ballads, pop songs as well as a slight hint of country too. His live show will also include his biggest hits.” Says concert promoter Dalin Vajčner.
The new record “Once Upon a Mind” will be released at the end of October. In February, Blunt & his band will set out for a UK tour, followed by an extensive world tour. The World tour includes a stop in Prague on the 6th of March. Tickets will be available for 890 Czech crowns through the Ticketlive and Ticketportal networks.
Blunt’s first album is one of the most successful British albums ever released. His next record, “All the Lost Souls” with the single “1973” was also successful – dominating charts in more than 20 countries across the globe. His third studio record featured the song “Bonfire Heart”, which made it to #4 in the British singles chart. Blunt’s first Czech performance took place in Lumbe’s garden in Prague during the summer of 2006. The show was so popular, that the organisers had to increase the venue capacity.
