He’s become his own unique one-man brand of latter-day British invasion — which makes the title of his wildly successful single all the more ironic.
Sam Smith, whose recording of “I’m Not the Only One” has kept the turnstiles revolving and the ticket sales popping, sold out tour appearances both in New York and in Los Angeles — according to sources — “within minutes.” Indeed, promoters in the latter city added a second show.
The UK singing sensation’s U.S. fall tour is timed to lead up to the American Music Awards November 23rd — for which Smith is nominated in two categories. On the broadcast — airing live on ABC at 8PM ET/PT — Smith will perform his top-selling single.
