Singer-songwriter extraordinaire James Blunt is returning to Australia next year in promotion of his new album, Moon Landing, and he has now added a second show in Sydney.

It’s perfect timing too, considering the success of his current single ‘Bonfire Heart’, which has peaked at #1 on the iTunes single chart and debuted at #5 on the ARIAs. Co-written by Ryan Tedder, Bonfire Heart incorporates the melancholic acoustics of 2005 hit ‘You’re Beautiful’ coupled with twinkling piano and nostalgic soft rock. Blunt will be supported by Rockhampton, Queensland, duo Busby Marou, who will bring their country-tinged songwriting to the tour. Their current album, Farewell Fitzroy, is out now through Warner Music.

James Blunt plays the State Theatre on Friday May 30 (sold out) and Saturday May 31. Tickets for the second show go on sale at 9am Monday December 9 via Ticketmaster.
