Sam is Too Good at Concerts!

Jul 02, 2018 10:57AM
For rainy days, breakups and times when you just wish someone understood you, Sam Smith is there. The Grammy and Academy Award winner is known for his melancholy pop/R&B tunes, with striking lyrics that touch your soul — in a good way. This British singer/songwriter is stopping by American Airlines Center this month to perform his emotional-yet-catchy songs from his newest album, “The Thrill of it All.” Although screaming fans are to be expected (the accent mixed with his rugged looks plus a sensitive side equals a recipe for fan-girling), the concert will also be a stunning experience filled with music that’s real, touching and incredibly heartwarming.

While Smith has always been interested in music, the London-native didn’t cross over to American stardom until he appeared on Disclosure’s “Latch.” From there, his first single, “Lay Me Down,” as well as “Stay With Me” and “I’m Not the Only One” from his 2014 debut album “In The Lonely Hour,” all reached Top 10 in the charts. This launched Smith’s career, and he went on to receive several awards and the second best-selling album of 2014 in the U.K. and U.S. behind albums from Ed Sheeran and Taylor Swift, respectively. In 2015, he recorded “Writing’s on the Wall,” the theme song for “Spectre,” and he released his latest album in November 2017. During the show, Smith’s fans will love singing to his newest hits, “Too Good at Goodbyes,” “Pray,” “Palace” and “Midnight Train.” Be sure to bring waterproof mascara, plenty of tissues and a good friend to go with you, as crying — and having a good time — will be unavoidable.
