The five-time Grammy-nominated singer will also perform in the United Kingdom as part of his spring European tour, following Hungary. In the UK, he will play two concerts at London’s Royal Albert Hall.
This is not the first time that the singer of the hit song You’re Beautiful has visited Hungary. Not the first time that he performs in Budapest “Hungarian audiences have already seen the world star, known for his strong stage presence, romantic singing style, catchy melodies and danceable songs,” the organiser writes.
The statement quotes Blunt: “Words cannot express how excited I am to be back on tour in 2024. It’s been incredible fun writing and recording my new album. I’m sure some of the new songs will move everyone.
I can’t wait to crowdsurf – in Budapest too.” Blunt was last due to come to Hungary in 2020, but his concert was cancelled due to Covid, 24.hu writes.
However, he was positive about the Hungarian capital when he played at Papp László Budapest Sports Arena in 2018: “I don’t know how many times I’ve been here, but I feel at home now.
This time I went shopping in a supermarket because I ran out of things during the tour,” he said at the time. Blunt also revealed that in addition to performing, he had also travelled through Hungary several times as a professional soldier.
Beside You and Who We Used To Be The album’s first single is the recently released Beside You. The video, directed by Craig Bingham, recalls memories of James’ past.
In the video, James encounters past selves of himself, and as he moves on, he takes on the roles of his past life. Who We Used To Be is James Blunt’s first studio album since the critically and publicly acclaimed Once Upon A Mind in 2019. A compilation of the singer’s biggest hits, 2021’s The Stars Beneath My Feet has gone gold.
