James Blunt announces Moon Landing tour dates

You're Beautiful singer James Blunt will hit the road next year as he announces a new UK tour to support the release of his forthcoming album, Moon Landing.

The singer-songwriter begins the UK part of his global tour on April 14th at Edinburgh's Festival Theatre, before hitting Glasgow's Royal Concert Hall the following night.

He then plays Manchester's Apollo on April 17th, the Civic Hall in Wolverhampton on the 18th and London's Royal Albert Hall on the 19th.

The tour wraps up at Bournemouth's International Centre on April 20th 2014. Tickets go on sale this Friday (September 13th).

Moon Landing is released on October 21st, with the first single, Bonfire Heart, already receiving positive reviews.

Blunt, an ex-Army officer who served in Bosnia, announced his arrival on the music scene with the global smash hit album Back to Bedlam in 2004.

The record has sold over 11 million copies worldwide and reached number two in the US album charts. Fans will certainly be hoping he delves into his back catalogue on the tour.
