Will Young tour: Full list of dates as singer announces massive 49-date UK tour - and how to get tickets

He started out in reality television but Will Young has proven to be one of the few stars to arise from that arena and keep on shining.

Plenty of his fans are too young to remember the moment when Will Young won the first ever Pop Idol in 2002, but they still adore his music. He has a new album, his ninth, called LIght it Up. His first single is Falling Deep. And fans will be delighted to see that the star is very likely to be popping up at a venue near them soon thanks to a huge 49-date tour.

Will speaks out on touring

Touring is something that is nothing new to Will, having ventured out on plenty over the years. This up and coming tour will see him on the road for three months, and he admitted what the hardest thing about touring is.  “When I’m out on the road, the hardest thing is missing my dogs. I’d love to take them with me, maybe in a campervan, but I just think it would be too much for them. One is a bit big and one is quite old, I think it would be too much for them. I love touring though, it’s great to get out and play live. With this tour, I specifically tried to make sure I didn’t play the big venues. That’s why I’m playing at smaller venues but a lot more of them. People usually need to go to big cities to see shows, and I thought ‘why don’t I go to them?’”

The plan of playing more, smaller venues is one that comes from Will’s last tour. “People still want to go to gigs, which is good. My last tour was in smaller venues and people were able to ask questions, it was engaging and I remember thinking then that it’s something I wanted to do again.”  

Over the years, Will doesn’t believe that gig culture has changed too much- but one aspect in particular was mentioned by the singer.  “I did think that there was a whole issue with people having their phones out, but I think it’s become slightly better now. It was always a bit annoying when you’re on stage and you look out at a sea of phones. I think the most annoying part is when people have the band as a backdrop and they take selfies. The biggest change has been the way music is streamed. It's all about streaming now. I don’t like this, I still buy CDs and I guess there is a positive way to go in that the sales of CDs and I believe vinyl are on the rise again.”
