Sam Smith

UK pop singer Sam Smith already has a few US dates announced including Bonnaroo and a sold-out NYC show at The Apollo (6/17) soon after, but he's since scheduled a full North American tour to go down later in the year. That tour brings him back to NYC for a show on September 19 at Hammerstein Ballroom. Tickets for that show go on sale Friday (5/30) at 10 AM. Updated dates are listed below.

In other news, you may have noticed that Sam put out his video for "Leave Your Lover" this week which featured the "twist ending" that led to speculation about his sexuality. He's since revealed in an interview with The FADER:

In the Lonely Hour is about a guy that I fell in love with last year, and he didn't love me back. I think I'm over it now, but I was in a very dark place. I kept feeling lonely in the fact that I hadn't felt love before.

...I just wanted to talk about him and have it out there. It's about a guy and that's what I wanted people to know--I want to be clear that that's what it's about. I've been treated as normal as anyone in my life; I've had no issues. I do know that some people have issues in life, but I haven't, and it's as normal as my right arm. I want to make it a normality because this is a non-issue. People wouldn't ask a straight person these questions. I've tried to be clever with this album, because it's also important to me that my music reaches everybody. I've made my music so that it could be about anything and everybody-- whether it's a guy, a female or a goat--and everybody can relate to that. I'm not in this industry to talk about my personal life unless it's in a musical form.

Goat lovers, rejoice.

Honestly I'd be more surprised if he came out as straight. Everything about this dude screams 'mo.

It's almost as shocking as when Rosie came out!

Wonder if he polished the knobs that Disclosure turns, if u no what I mean.

Captain Obvious is obvious.

Seriously? A blind person could tell he is gay.

Those gays really were just all about getting equal rights so they could open up the bestiality world - I KNEW IT! ITS NOT OK TO SEXUALLY LOVE ANIMALS.

Being gay certainly will get you more attention than being straight. Ask Frank Ocean, it was his best career move.

George Bush was right. Let them marry each other and next they'd demand to marry animals!

Talentless and irrelevant, but now that he let everyone know he likes balls, he is fascinating.

Have two friends who were RAVING about Sam Smith. They kept mentioning Sam Smith, Sam Smith, Sam Smith, the song with Sam Smith, oh you don't know Sam Smith!?!?!? and they kept looking at each other.

No I fucking don't know Sam Smith! And it also doesn't mean anything to me if he's homosexual or not.

Not that there's anything wrong with that.

U small minded people just because of someone's sexuality pathetic we live in 2014 grow up why should someone not be happy with who there are many people lie still just to please others and as to say Sam smith is talentless he is one of the most talented singers to date.

Relax Amber-leigh, deep breathes

Its disgusting how many anti-sexual comments i just saw. Did it hurt you? Did it affect you in any way? All we want to do is to be happy in this world and if that is to be with the same gender then so be it. Nobody should have to question it. This is whats wrong with our generation, we judge each other for being ourselves. I'm so sick of people saying gay and lesbian. They're just people who are different like each of us. We are all different. Love has no limits so why should you put one?

Posted by E.D. | July 31, 2014 1:43 PM

I don't give a dam if he's 50 shades of Grey and is in love with the Michelin Man- he makes good music and that is all I care about. I can only judge myself.

Posted by N S | August 8, 2014 12:38 PM

I like the fact that u are being honest brou and all I can say is I'm still your fan,do what's best for u and not for other people

Posted by zintle | August 14, 2014 6:10 PM

Posted by jocelyn | October 17, 2014 7:09 PM

Stop saying he's gay. You are going to break my little sisters heart. And it will be all your faults you mean meanies.

Posted by Anonymous | October 17, 2014 8:34 PM

He's not gay. I wish you guys would stop saying those kinds of remarks about him. His music is legendary. What have you done for humanity?

Posted by Anonymous | October 17, 2014 8:35 PM

Bonororoo will never be the same again.

He looks likes that guy from the travel trip I took where we lost the entire deposit on the hostel we were staying at for the week. Slimey looking shit.

John Johnson is playing just a few blocks down from his show in case you want to see them. Doug Douglas is going to be a few blocks more down the road.

Posted by anonymous | October 17, 2014 8:45 PM

I had sex with dough and it wasn't all that. Just sayin.

Posted by HipsterPoolOfPiss | October 17, 2014 8:47 PM

Part of me, as a female human being wonders why I ever got naked for this person.

Posted by Linda | October 17, 2014 8:50 PM

You close mind little fuckers! In what world do you live in, Roccco?! You discriminating little bitch. We live in the 21st century for fucks sake! Seriously, you should be grossed off about yourself and most of all be fucking ashamed, you dumb fuck! First look at yourself, (by the look of your idiotic comment, your a lame excuse of a human). And do it well, before you misjudge others! If you have nothing good to say, dont fucking say anything!!! By the way, nobody asked for your lame opinion!

Posted by nilssa | October 20, 2014 1:46 AM

He is amazing! Does it matter who he likes? People need to stop being judge mental!!! If you are going to judge him,way be a fan?.?.? Also if you guys might be confused he seems to like both of them. But idk for sure. It's really none of my business
