Scottish singer-songwriter Tom Walker has announced the support acts for his upcoming Aberdeen gig.
Winner of the 2019 BRITs Breakthrough Award and nominee for Best Single at the 2020 BRITs, Tom will welcome Cameron Barnes (a member of the Red Hot Chilli Pipers) as his main support and Aberdonian Scott Wallace as his opening artist.
Bringing his Home Run Tour to the city, the gig will take place at The Tunnels on Carnegie’s Brae on Thursday February 6 from 7-11pm
The singer, whose album What A Time To Be Alive hit Number one in the UK and has sold over a million copies around the world, wanted to give the opportunity for his fans to discover some of the best new UK talent at his only UK headline tour in 2020.
The main support artists were hand picked as some of the most exciting emerging artists around and the opening acts were chosen from hundreds of entries sent in after Tom invited applications for this amazing opportunity.
Tom said: “The Home Run tour combines everything I love. Playing acoustically is always a buzz because there’s something really intimate and special with the audience when the songs are stripped right back to their basics. I love playing on home turf, where the fans really treat you as family and have given me a huge amount of support from when I was just starting out.
“I’m really excited to have all the support artists on board for the tour and to give a little boost to a local artist each night. It’s not that long since I was trying to get onto gigs as the opening act and it can really make a difference to your career by playing to new audiences who have the chance to hear you for the first time. To be able to offer that opportunity on this tour is amazing.”
