Sam will support legendary singer Engelbert Humperdinck on a UK tour that marks 50 years since Engelbert made his first steps in what would become an incredible career. Humperdinck has earned 63 gold and 24 platinum records, selling more than 150 million units. He is best known, of course, for mega-hit ‘Release Me [And Let Me Love Again]’.
Engelbert is reaffirming the home connection by inviting fellow Leicesterian Sam to open the Birmingham and London shows.
Engelbert said, “We’ve got a lot in common and I am delighted to have her join me on the road. She’s no novice, having topped both the UK album and singles chart, supported Beyoncé and blown us all away on X Factor, but I like to think there’s still plenty I can teach her after half a century doing this! I spoke to Sam before the finals of X Factor and I promised her then that we would one day share a stage. I'm happy to be fulfilling that promise”.
Sam said, “It’s an honour for me to join a true legend on stage, I look forward to working with him and performing for his army of fans!”
