London songwriter James Bay returns for this one-off Sydney show.
The past few years have been busy for the artist, being hard at work on forthcoming second album Electric Light, releasing in May. Select cuts from the record, coming together in East London’s Baltic Studios, showcase a much more polished sound – but not without the rawness. Bay’s most recent single ‘Pink Lemonade’, garnering over 192,000 video views in one day, has the songwriter tapping into childhood exasperation, while February’s ‘Wild Love’ is an anthem waiting to explode on the live stage.
Bay’s rise on this stage has also been a dizzying one, with the musician making appearances on TV including Jimmy Kimmel Live! and The Late Show With Stephen Colbert in 2016, at festivals such as Glastonbury and Pinkpop, and countless headline tours. East coast audiences in Australia first fell in love with the soul-stirrer during his debut tour here in 2015, with him returning later that year for a one-off Sydney show. Yet it wasn’t long before Bay made his own love for the country known in 2016, this time backed by a full band as he enraptured fans with material from Chaos And The Calm.
2018 seems to be another mammoth year for the musician, and he shows absolutely no signs of slowing down coming off the back of two huge tours in the USA and UK. Don’t miss the polished, yet forever gritty songwriting of James Bay come to life onstage when he returns for this one-off Sydney show!
‘Bay’s performance had a hint of attitude, a touch of swagger, and charisma in spades. The performance was polished, but not to the point it seemed choreographed. Raw talent made sure of that.’
– Sydney Morning Herald
‘James Bay and his band picked me up and shook me completely out of my critique’s headspace. Rather than being there for the expressed purpose of reviewing the show, I simply became a fan.’
