Louis Tomlinson Announces New Global Partnership With BMG
Louis Tomlinson has announced today (Monday, May 10) that he is partnering with BMG to release his second album worldwide.
Tomlinson says: "I’m very excited to start the next part of my journey with BMG.”
Jamie Nelson VP A&R at BMG UK says: "We are delighted to welcome Louis to BMG. He is already busy working on new music, and we are excited to join him on the next phase of his extraordinary career."
The English singer-songwriter has also announced today the first wave of new 2022 dates for his postponed World Tour in UK, Europe, USA and Australia, including a brand new date at London's Wembley Arena. This show replaces Tomlinson's two sold out London shows at The Roundhouse, and tickets will be transferred to the new venue. His first show at Wembley Arena will take place on April 22 of next year, and extra tickets for the gig will go on sale on Friday May 14 at 9am BST.
After postponing his 2020 world tour due to the Covid-19 pandemic, Tomlinson will now finally get back on the road with his first solo tour, which is already completely sold out. The new dates are listed below. Further international rescheduled dates will be announced at a later date.
Last year, Tomlinson released his million selling smash debut solo album, Walls, which hit Top 3 in the UK and Top 10 in the USA. A lyrically personal album that proved he had found his feet as a solo artist, the album produced a clutch of acclaimed singles including the emotive first release "Two of Us", the raucous "Kill My Mind" and the reflective "We Made It".
In 2019 Tomlinson headlined the Coca-Cola music festival in Madrid to an audience of 25,000 people, and performed to 65,000 fans at Premios Telehit in the Foro Sol stadium in Mexico City. He picked up the Best Song Award at the 2019 Teen Choice Awards for "Two Of Us", which has so far hit over 100 million streams on Spotify alone.
In 2018 He won an iHeart Award for 'Best Solo Breakout', and an EMA Award for 'Best UK & Ireland Act' in 2017. Tomlinson was ranked No. 5 on Billboard’s emerging artists of 2018. Last year he also won 'Artist Of The Summer' in Philly radio station 96.5 TDY's annual awards.
In December 2019, he hosted one of the biggest live stream concert events of 2020, selling over 160,000 tickets to fans in over 100 countries and raising funds for several important charities. As a member of One Direction, Tomlinson has sold over 100 million records. His solo music has garnered over a billion streams alone.
