James Bay Announces 2016 Return

Ahead of his sold-out Metro Theatre show in Sydney tonight, UK singer/songwriter James Bay has announced he will bring his full band back down under for the Chaos and the Calm tour in January and February 2016.

The six-date run will feature the 24-year-old’s biggest Australia shows to date, as well as his debut New Zealand performance.

It’s been a huge year for Bay, who counts Taylor Swift and Ed Sheeran among his fans. His debut album Chaos and the Calm, recorded in Nashville, has sold more than a million copies worldwide, peaking at #1 in the UK, #3 in Australia and #10 in New Zealand.

Single ‘Let It Go’ was recently certified platinum in Australia and gold in New Zealand, while Bay is the most recent recipient of the BRIT Critics’ Choice Award, joining previous winners such as Sam Smith, Adele and Florence & The Machine.
