Calum Scott to serenade NZ fans for the first time this October

If you loved the man behind one of the world's most remarkable renditions of Robyn's 'Dancing On My Own', then prepare to hear him perform live because UK's charming crooner Calum Scott is heading to Auckland's Powerstation to play his first ever Kiwi show this October!

After bringing his heartfelt performance to NZ, Scott will head straight to his Australian gigs in Brisbane, Sydney and Melbourne.

Scott's heartwarming appearance on Britain’s Got Talent in 2015 shot him to instant global stardom. Three years after, he again took the world by storm with his recently launched debut album 'Only Human' featuring his officially released lead single 'Dancing On My Own'. The track quickly accumulated more than 6.5 million worldwide sales, reached 5x Platinum in Australia and saw Callum Scott nominated for the Brit Award for British Single Of The Year. Upon its release, Scott's album resonated strongly with Aussie audiences, peaking at the 5th spot on the ARIA chart.

'Only Human' is the result of a long, cathartic songwriting journey. Filled with deeply personal material, Scott's ability to transform pain into beauty is undeniable. Whether he's expressing his unrequited longing or extending his deepest gratitude to his sister Jade who pushed him to pursue his singing career, Scott never fails to put his sentiments into writing. His ability to consistently build on his gift for poignant, emotionally charged performances is a sure sign of his lasting impact to his legion of fans.

"Scott's stunningly pure voice is affecting enough in itself, but his lyrics on every one of the [album's] tracks are vulnerable and raw." - Billboard

"With 'Only Human', (Calum Scott) makes an impressive splash… a compelling debut album." - Huffington Post

Scott's elegantly sculpted pop centres on his soulful vocals and heartfelt lyrics, exemplified in gently uplifting single 'You Are The Reason' (currently certified 2x Platinum in Australia), aching piano ballad 'Hotel Room' and hit single 'Rhythm Inside'. 2018 has certainly been a significant year for the 29-year old singer as he took his upbeat yet deceptively anguished balladry on the road for his first headline tour across the UK and Europe in May.

"['No Matter What'] left concert goers captivated as Scott's voice radiated throughout a silent crowd. Upon finishing the song, Scott couldn't hold his emotions back and walked to the back of the stage to dry his eyes as he received one of the biggest ovations of the night." – The Courier Online

Don't sleep on your chance to snatch up tickets to one of Britain's most heartwarming performers of this era.
