The Eurovision runner-up SAM RYDER has announced the details of a huge tour next year, which includes a South Wales date in the Great Hall in Cardiff.

Sam Ryder (Eurovision 2022)

Sam who came second to Ukraine’s Kalush Orchestra with ‘Space Man’ at this year’s competition in May, although any other year he would have romped hime to win, kicks off his tour in Belfast next March, getting here on the 1st April.

Sam Ryder will be laying songs from his upcoming debut album There’s Nothing But Space, Man! which is set for release on the 14th October, and actually pre-ordering the album will get you early access to tickets. There’s a really nice signed CD package you can get for under £12, which seems pretty good to us.

Sam has just released a dance remix of ‘Space Man’ by DJ Sam Feldt and he’s also said to have another dance track on the way with none other than David Guetta.

It’s been quite a year for Sam, following his ‘Eurovision’ success, he performed at the Platinum Jubilee concert at Buckingham Palace. Watch that performance HERE.

“Sia. She would be amazing. Not only is she incredible as a singer, musician, writer and person. But she was the first person to root for me on social media in lockdown. Justin Bieber sent my video to her, which is a bonkers sentence and she posted it on her Instagram page with a really kind, encouraging message underneath it and it would be really nice to complete the circle and meet with her, work with her. That would be a dream come true!”

“Alicia Keys is a legend, one of my absolute favourites. So I guess I’m spoilt for choice – they are the two best female singers there!”

Tickets for the tour go on general sale from 9am this Friday 17th June. As we said earlier, if you do some pre-ordering you get early access to those tickets.

SAM RYDER gets to the Great Hall in Cardiff on Saturday 1st April 2023, you can get general sale tickets HERE.
