Following the release of her critically acclaimed second album A Northern Soul and the intimate ITV special which captured an insight into the life of the award-wining star, Sheridan Smith today announces further dates for her 2019 U.K. tour.
The North Lincolnshire-born star will perform at the Bonus Arena in Hull on 28 March 2019.
The additional dates will precede the already announced London date at The O2 on 30 March 2019.
Sheridan’s latest sophomore album delved into her own personal experiences to co-write a heartfelt and deeply personal collection of contemporary songs.
She collaborated with some of the world’s leading songwriters including the album’s Grammy-winning producer Jimmy Hogarth (Amy Winehouse, James Bay), plus Amy Wadge (Ed Sheeran, Kylie) and Eg White (Adele, Florence + The Machine).
Bonus Arena is a state-of-the-art, music and events complex with a capacity of up to 3,500 people that will allow Hull to attract large corporate conferences, exhibitions and trade tours as well as major touring concerts, stand-up comedy, family shows and sporting events. The plans include the building of the new arena, alongside the rebuilding of Osborne Street car park and additional public spaces in a currently derelict area on Myton Street behind Princes Quay shopping centre. The arena is scheduled to open during the summer of 2018. The building is owned by Hull City Council and will be managed by SMG Europe, a world leader in venue management, operation and marketing with more than 220 venues worldwide, including Manchester Arena, Metro Radio Arena Newcastle, First Direct Arena Leeds, The Baths Hall and The Plowright Theatre Scunthorpe.
