"Oh, won't you stay with me?"
With his debut studio album, last year's In the Lonely Hour, and his melancholic meditations on love desired, love consummated, and love lost, English pop crooner Sam Smith has emerged as an unlikely pop phenomenon.
He's moody. He's brainy. And he doesn't do choreography. But still, Smith notched four wins at this year's Grammys: Best New Artist, Best Pop Vocal Album, Record of the Year, and Song of the Year.
Now he's embarking upon an ambitious, 19-city North American arena tour. And he's even coming to the American Airlines Arena in Miami.
Just check the cut for Sam Smith's 2015 dates.
