The tour announcement comes after Fender teased the Ally Pally show with a video that saw him sitting outside the iconic London venue while he and his band ate sweets.

“We haven’t done a palace yet, have we?” he asks.

“Is there any palaces around here?” he continues. “There’s not, is there? There’s Buckingham Palace. Cannot do a gig there because the Queen would fucking kick the shit out of wu.”


Meanwhile, Sam Fender went straight to the top of the Official UK Albums Chart on Friday (September 20), claiming his first Number One album.

The North Shields musician released his debut album ‘Hypersonic Missiles’ last week (September 13) after being named the BRITs Critics’ Choice winner in December 2018.
