Following Gerry’s triumphant penultimate slot at Reading and Leeds Festival attracting one of the biggest crowds of the weekend, the show in Swansea will be one of only a handful of shows his fans will be able to see him outdoors in the UK in Summer of 2022 with the tour also taking in a sold-out hometown show in Glasgow’s Hampden Park national stadium.
The Swansea show takes place in Singleton Park, one of the UK’s most beautiful city centre parks with its famous walled botanical garden and woodland walks and follows recent huge shows by The Stereophonics and Catfish and The Bottlemen. The supporting line-up on this show will be announced soon.
The continuing ascent of Gerry Cinnamon is one of contemporary music’s most outstanding stories. Rising from a self-released debut album, Gerry has become a stadium and arena-filling headliner. And as an artist whose revealing and honest songs naturally connect with a huge and devoted audience, he’s achieved it all entirely independently.
In April 2020, Gerry’s second album ‘The Bonny’ shot straight to Number 1 in the Official Album Charts in the UK. Now certified gold, the album went on to become the third biggest selling UK album released that year.
Having organically built up a huge following over the past 4 years, Gerry has become the UK ‘s biggest independent artist and his last tour was second largest in 2019 UK tickets sales.
His previously announced Welsh show in Cardiff Castle, sold out in minutes.
