Sam Smith to serenade Taipei in October
Taipei, June 1 (CNA) Grammy Award-winning English singer-songwriter Sam Smith will hold a concert in Taiwan in October, the official website of the singer and Taiwan ticketing website/promoter KHAM Inc. announced Thursday.
It will take place at the Taipei Arena on Oct. 9 at 7:30 p.m.
The show will be a stop in the singer's world tour, "Gloria the Tour," which celebrates Smith's fourth studio album, "Gloria," that was released on Jan. 27 this year to positive reviews by critics.
The 31-year-old singer is also set to perform in other Asian countries, including Hong Kong, Japan, South Korea, the Philippines, Thailand and Singapore.
Before the new album was released, its second single "Unholy" had been nominated for the Best Pop Duo/Group Performance for the 65th Annual Grammy Awards.
The song, released in September 2022, was a collaboration between Smith and German singer Kim Petras. The pair went on to win the award.
On top of the accolade, Smith's first album, "In the Lonely Hour," also won the artist four Grammy awards in 2015. In the same year, Smith also wrote and performed "Writing's on the Wall," for the 24th James Bond film, "Spectre."
