James Blunt Plots Just Two U.S. Dates
There’s a couple of numbers you need to know in anticipation of James Blunt’s upcoming series of concert dates.
Those numbers are 24, 7, 2, 2012, and 3.
The number 24 refers to the 24th of November. That’s the date the British troubadour kicks off yet another leg of his Some Kind of Trouble Tour 2011. On that night, J.B. will be in Sherbrooke, Quebec for a concert at the Palias Des Sports.
Including the show in Sherbrooke, Blunt is scheduled to make seven stops in Canada. His last show in the Great White North is set for Dec. 1 in Rama, Ontario at the Casino Rama.
Next up for singer-songwriter is a two-city tour of the United States. Blunt will be in Mashantucket, Connecticut for a gig at the MGM Grand at Foxwoods on Dec. 2. The following night, Blunt visits Atlantic City, New Jersey for a concert at the Borgata Music Box.
Two planned dates in the U.S. won’t sit well with Blunt’s American fans, especially those that live outside of the Northeast. However, there are serious rumors going around that Jimmy B. will release his 2012 calendar very soon. Blunt’s itinerary for next year will more than likely have several shows routed for the U.S.
Blunt is touring behind his third studio album, Some Kind of Trouble. The LP came out in 2010 and contains the hits “I’ll Be Your Man” and “Stay The Night.” That latter song was composed by Blunt, OneRepublic’s Ryan Tedder, and songwriter extraordinaire, Steve Robson.
Here’s another number to consider when considering James Blunt: 19 million. That’s the number of albums the “You’re Beautiful” singer has sold in his relatively short career. Blunt’s debut release, 2004’s Back to Bedlam, is the UK’s top selling album for the first decade of the 21st century.
Blunt entered the business of show at a comparatively late age. He released his first album when he was 30 mainly because he served six years in the British Army. That’s why early in his career, Blunt’s live performances suffered from a serious lack of experience; he also struggled to connect with his audiences.
However, the officer and gentlemen has vastly improved his live shows as well as his stage presence. Nowadays, James Blunt concerts are well received by both fans and critics and James Blunt tickets are in incredibly high demand.
