Calum Scott with almost sold out concerts

  • Part One: MITCH JAMES

  • April 21, Lisbon, Capitólio SOLD OUT
  • April 22, Lisbon, Capitólio SOLD OUT

The British Calum Scott, one of the most successful singers of the last ten years, is performing in Portugal in 2023 and brings some of his main hits, such as “Dancing on My Own” or “You Are The Reason”, as well as the themes of his most recent album, edited in 2022 “Bridges”.

After selling out on the 21st and 22nd of April, both at the Capitólio in Lisbon, there are still the last tickets for the 20th of April, at the Hard Club in Porto. And there is one more reason for interest in the British concerts in Portugal: the first part in charge of the New Zealander Mitch James. The musician brings themes like “Bright Blue Skies” or “No Fixed Above”, in addition to the news from the last album, “patiente“, released in 2022.

PART ONE: MITCH JAMES
The New Zealand singer is known for his frankness and sincerity, which can be seen both in his songs and in the way he communicates with fans, whether on social media or in live performances. Mitch James’ emotive and captivating themes soon won over audiences in his country and abroad, especially after the release of “No Fixed Above”, an immediate success that consolidated Mitch’s fame.

The debut album would eventually arrive in 2018. The eponymous album exploded on streaming platforms thanks to songs like “Bright Blue Skies”, “21” and “Old News”. After this recording debut, Mitch James traveled around the world, accompanying names like Six60 or Ed Sheeran, both references for his music. After a series of difficulties, personal and professional, the singer released “motions” in 2022, a single that reflects all these growing pains, showing that it is inevitable to be willing to lose yourself somewhere along the way and then find yourself. This was the first advance of Mitch’s new album, “patiente” which was recorded in May 2022, after Mitch had traveled to Los Angeles and met Whakaio Taahi, producer, composer, and guitarist of the band Tonight Alive.

Whakaio’s precious help in the production allowed Mitch to unleash all his creative potential, without ever losing his usual sincerity and the courage to appear vulnerable. The Portuguese public has the opportunity to hear these new songs in the first part of Calum Scott’s concerts in Portugal: on April 20th, at Hard Club, in Porto, and on April 21st and 22nd, in Lisbon, at Capitólio.

Calum Scott is one of the artists of the moment, synonymous with success with each of his releases, achieving numbers that only impress those who have never heard him. When he started to stand out on the show “Britain’s Got Talent”, in 2015, it was already evident that the future could only be bright for Calum. And the public was not mistaken.

Right on the first album, “Only Human”, Calum rose to the top position of iTunes top in over 20 countries, reaching a million records sold and more than one billion auditions on streaming platforms. Singles such as “Dancing on My Own”, “Rhythm Inside”, “What I Miss Most”, “No Matter What” or “You Are The Reason” explain the success of the British musician. Dedicated to melodies that stick in the head, with raw and emotional lyrics, never afraid to explore his own vulnerabilities, Calum Scott owns a voice in line with the best interpreters in the history of pop music.

After the numbers achieved with the success of the first album, the numerous nominations for awards, such as the Brit Award, and sold-out concerts all over the place, Calum Scott set out to challenge a second album, with the same ambition: to play the hearts of the public (now on a planetary scale), singing with the same truth as ever.

The result is called “Bridges”, with production by names like Gabe Simon (Maroon 5, Rag’n’Bone Man) or Jon Maguire (James Bay, Liam Payne, Rita Ora). Released in 2022, this new record by the British musician passes the difficult test of succeeding the resounding success of “Only Human”. Calum’s voice appears untouchable and the songs once again have an overwhelming force: “Biblical”, “Rise”, “If You Ever Change Your Mind”, “Heaven” or “Boys in the Street” are some of the songs that promise to stay in the ears of millions of people around the world. With the usual pop appeal, these songs also do not shy away from the most difficult themes, such as the need to build bridges even when it seems impossible, some family ties marked by pain, and the dramas of adult relationships.

With “Bridges” in his luggage and a series of songs that seem to come out of a career spanning more than twenty years (his first album only came out in 2018), Calum will be in Portugal on April 20, 2023, at the Hard Club in Porto, and April 21 and 22, 2023, at Capitólio in Lisbon, for three concerts not to be missed.
