Michael Bublé announces major UK arena tour

The singer will headline a series of shows in Summer 2019

️️Michael Bublé has announced a major UK arena tour next summer.

The Canadian crooner returns with seven UK dates among a huge world tour in 2019, following two sold-out shows in London earlier this year.

Michael Bublé's last UK tour was nearly four years ago, following a ten-night residency at The O2 in 2013 which sold over 200,000 tickets.

This announcement comes following rumours that the singer was to retire from music. After a break from the public eye to focus on his family, Bublé has returned to the studio to record his newest album ❤️ (pronounced love) which is released on Friday November 16.

Fans have an opportunity to get their hands on tour tickets before they go on general sale: everyone who orders and pre-orders ❤️ from HMV before 11:59pm on Sunday November 18 will receive exclusive access to pre-sale tickets for the tour.

The album features covers of favourite American songbook classics, including When You're Smiling and the lead single, When I Fall In Love, which was originally a hit for Nat King Cole in 1957 and famously covered by Rick Astley in 1987.

The album also includes original songs Forever Now - written by Bublé - and recent single Love You Anymore, penned by Charlie Puth.

If Bublé can reach the top of the Official UK Albums Chart with ❤️, it will be his fourth UK Number 1 album. His last album, Nobody But Me, debuted at Number 2 in 2016. See Michael Bublé's full Official Charts history here.
