Leon Bridges

Story by Jack Foley

LEON Bridges has announced details of a full UK and European tour for later this year (2018) in support of his forthcoming second album, Good Thing.

The young Fort Worth R&B artist will head out in October and November for 17 dates, kicking off at Neue Theaterfabrik in Munich on October 23 and concluding at London’s O2 Academy Brixton on November 17.

Tickets for all shows go on general sale from Friday, April 13 through Leon’s website.

Support on all EU/UK dates in October and November comes from Amber Mark.

A special, intimate London show at Jazz Café on April 9 sold out instantly.

The album will be available both digitally and physically on Friday, May 4.

Good Thing is born from the song Bad Bad News, which contains the line “They say that I was born to lose, but I made a good good thing, out of bad bad news”.

By now Leon’s backstory is well known; he went from working as a dishwasher and struggling through the open mic scene in his native Fort Worth, Texas to two-time Grammy nominated artist performing at the White House for President Obama, attending the Met Gala and appearing on Saturday Night Live in a two year span. Now a more experienced artist, this album showcases a man’s continued rise from little opportunity to embracing the world stage.
