Local | James Bay returns to Sweden

By on October 27, 2015

March 21 Stockholm, Annexet

Last week was one of the UK‘s most exciting and popular performers singer-songwriter James Bay in Stockholm and made an intimate and extremely sweaty club gig. Hearts were crushed on loads of fans who were without tickets, but now comes the medicine for it. We greet James welcome back for another concert on March 21 at Annexet in Stockholm. Be ready when tickets go on sale Friday, October 30 at 9:00 am.

James Bay discovered music at age 11 when he was inspired to pick up the guitar after hearing Eric Clapton and Duane Allman’s peerless display of Derek and the Dominos classic “Layla”. Through a live video uploaded on YouTube by a fan Bay was discovered by Republic Records – home to, among others, Ben Howard, Lorde and Florence + The Machine – which quickly signed the talent. After a bunch of EP release, countless praises, a tour as opening act for the Irish sensation Hozier and a nomination for the BBC Sound of 2015 he released his debut album Chaos and the Calm, the monster hit “Hold Back the River(which is now sold all over 3x platinum), earlier this year. James Bay was also awarded a Brit Award for Critics’ Choice in 2015 as in previous years given to including Sam Smith, Florence + The Machine, Ellie Goulding and Adele.

After been number one on the UK album chart, landing at number seven in Sweden and run over us total at Debaser Strand last week James Bay makes his first big concert in Sweden on 21 March. This is at the Annex in Stockholm. Expect a lot of pressure on this from all sides.
