GREGORY PORTER
ANNOUNCES
UK TOUR
APRIL 2016

“The Brooklyn-based singer with the rich baritone and the ever-present Kangol hat is on a mission to revive old-school musical values… Possessed of massive vocal power offset by a rich tone and delicate control, his interpretations flit between jazz and soul, with the finesse of the former and strength of the latter in equal measure.” —MOJO

Grammy Award-winning jazz/soul singing sensation Gregory Porter – is proud to announce a 17 date tour around the UK. The tour opens on 4th April at the Royal Albert Hall, London and concludes on April 24Th at the Birmingham Symphony Hall.

Gregory Porter, continues to perform to sell out audiences across the world and has achieved international recognition and acclaim with his Grammy winning selling album ‘Liquid Spirit’  In the UK alone, the album is certified gold and has had staying power in the Official Album Charts – for 80 weeks since release.

On the back of a steaming set at Glastonbury and other recent shows – critics comment on Porter as a new ’king of jazz’ and a ‘leader of the pack’ – a performer of extraordinary prescence who has compared with the greatest of the greats, such as Joe Williams, Nat Cole, Donny Hathway and Marvin Gaye.
