Fresh from his recent Eurovision success Sam Ryder has confirmed two Irish dates
Ulster Hall Belfast on Friday 17 March and the 3Olympia Dublin on Saturday 18 March
Back in 2020, Sam Ryder uploaded the first of his now infamous covers. They quickly caught the attention of some famous fans, think Justin Bieber, Sia, Alicia Keys and Elton John – with compilations of his videos appearing on The Ellen Show, BBC’s Newsbeat and many more. As the videos kept coming, so did the fans – with his socials standing at over 17 million followers to date and hundreds of thousands of comments.
Fast forward to 2022 and not only has Sam Ryder gathered a huge following across social media, but he also represented the United Kingdom at the Eurovision Song Contest in Turin Italy.
Sam finished in second place at the Eurovision final with 466 points, becoming the UK’s highest-scoring Eurovision entrant. He won the jury vote securing the UK its best result since 1998, and its first top three since 2002. Following the contest, “Space Man” peaked at number two on the UK Singles Chart, becoming the highest-charting UK Eurovision entry since Gina G’s “Ooh Aah… Just a Little Bit” back in 1996.
Earlier this month Sam Ryder performed at the Platinum Jubilee concert, Platinum Party at the Palace.
Sam will release his debut album later this year.
