A gig by cult Scottish singer-songwriter Gerry Cinnamon is set to ‘break the record’ for the biggest-ever indoor show in Scotland.
The folk-rock performer, originally from Castlemilk in Glasgow, has sold out his concert with 15,000 fans expected at the P&J Live Arena on November 23.
Hist first headline UK and Ireland arena tour is now completely sold out, including extra nights added in Glasgow and London.
Gerry, while choosing to remain unsigned, has become a cult hero and force to be reckoned with since self-releasing his debut album Erratic Cinematic, which recently rocketed back to the top of the UK Album Charts; hitting the Top 20, at number 17, following massive performances at Glastonbury and TRNSMT Festival.
His inimitable live shows are infamous for their wild atmosphere and special sing-along moments; with his crowd singing every word – to every song – many before they are even released. His upcoming arena tour dates continues his legacy of sold-out shows; with over 115,000 tickets gone within hours of going on-sale.
The singer, who was recently nominated for Best Live Act and UK Breakthrough in the Association of Independent Music Awards, has also confirmed more new music is on the way, following the release of his latest single – Canter.
On his winter tour dates, Gerry said: ‘The last run was top class. Expect nothing less from this tour it’s just a wee bit bigger again. I heard Aberdeen is going to be the biggest-ever indoor show in Scotland, that’ll be wild. They’ll all be wild to be honest. I’ve been trying to keep a lid on it but the bonfire’s burning big time so what else am I going to do?!’
On life since his debut album, he adds: “I just put the album out there, on my own, no plan really, just thought if folk like it they’ll listen to it, if they don’t they won’t. Then it kicked off a bit and I had to book some gigs. They sold in seconds so we booked some more, venues got further away and bigger, same again. And repeat. Played a few nights in Amsterdam, that was fun. German tour too. I’ve been touring heavily the last year or so. It’s been amazing but now all I want to do is get new tunes out sharpish.”
The 33-year-old said of his latest single Canter: “Canter is one of those songs, upbeat, bit of energy to it and a wee bit of knowledge for the ears of anyone who needs it. It’s about making a plan no matter what situation you’re in make a plan and things will get better. Canter had to be the first new single, folk were shouting for it. I’ve got plenty more lined up that I want to drop before these next gigs. Sooner the better.”
