ANNOUNCES HUGE SUMMER TOUR FOR 2020
ALSO SHARES THE NEW TRACK ‘THE BONNY’
THE TITLE TRACK FROM HIS NEW ALBUM WHICH FOLLOWS IN APRIL
“A word-of-mouth sensation.” – NME
“The do-it-yourself stadium act.” - BBC
“The Glaswegian has built up a raucous following for his unvarnished acoustic anthems.” – The Guardian
“Gerry Cinnamon is our next folk hero.” – Big Issue
“His fans have the sort of feverish loyalty which can be found in very few other audiences.” – The Scotsman
“A top man doing supernatural things.” - Liam Gallagher
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.
Having just completed a sold-out UK and Ireland arena tour, Gerry will finish the year with two nights at the SSE Hydro before returning to Glasgow next summer to play a stadium show at Hampden Park, Scotland’s national football stadium, where all 50,000 tickets sold-out the same day they went on sale. He now announces a major arena and outdoor tour for the summer of 2020, which includes a London date at the historic Alexandra Palace and a headline set at the Belsonic festival in Belfast.
His forthcoming UK and Ireland tour dates are:
DECEMBER - SOLD-OUT
20th – Glasgow, SSE Hydro
21st – Glasgow, SSE Hydro
MAY - JUST ADDED
29th - Birmingham, Resorts World Arena

Fans who pre-order copies of Gerry’s eagerly anticipated second album ‘The Bonny’ (coming next April) via https://gerrycinnamon.ffm.to/gerrystore.oem will receive access to a pre-sale for tour tickets. The pre-sale opens at 9am on Wednesday December 4th before tickets go on general sale at 9am on Friday December 6th.
To coincide with the announcement, Gerry has also shared his brand new track ‘The Bonny’, the title track from his upcoming album. Simultaneously anthemic and intimate, and nostalgic yet hopeful for the future, Gerry uses the imagery of a bonfire “so big that the flames light up the sky” as a symbol for making the most of the here-and-now. ‘The Bonny’ is now available on 10” Double A-side vinyl with ‘Dark Days’ from Gerry’s official store.
Recent months have seen Gerry preview the release of ‘The Bonny’ album with some new material in the shape of ‘Canter’, ‘Sun Queen’ and ‘Dark Days’. ‘The Bonny’ follows his Top 20 debut album ‘Erratic Cinematic’, which has been certified Gold in recognition of more than 120,000 sales. He’s already exceeded 127 million plays at Spotify.
News of Gerry’s latest shows add to a phenomenal year. His Glastonbury set saw the John Peel Stage rammed to capacity, with fans spread out far beyond the confines of the tent. And back home in Glasgow, he co-headlined the TRNSMT Festival alongside Stormzy. Such unforgettable scenes resulted in him winning Best Live Act at the AIM Independent Music Awards, an accolade that was decided by a public vote.
