Gerry Cinnamon Reschedules UK Dates For 2021
Gerry Cinnamon is rescheduling his 2020 UK dates until next year due to the ongoing crisis. He has been steadily working through new possibilities as it becomes clear that gigs will be on hold for the time being. All UK and Ireland dates are now rescheduled, reorganising a tour that will see him playing to the largest audiences of his career so far, with 200,000 tickets sold.
The dates that would have been in Newcastle, Cardiff, Brighton, Sheffield, Manchester, Birmingham and London in August and September 2020 will now take place in May and June 2021. All original tickets remain valid.
The new full UK and Ireland dates are:
29th – Newcastle, This Is Tomorrow (Headliner)
30th – Cardiff, Cardiff Castle (SOLD OUT)

Gerry said, “We tried for Autumn but the world’s still sorting itself out. Gutted but it pales in comparison to the shit other folk are going through. As long as everybody’s safe and well we’re winning regardless. Love you all, until next time. x “
For fans missing the live shows, Gerry recently shared a video for new single ‘Where We’re Going’ featuring footage from his 2019 Arena Tour. The single has already been streamed over 9 million times.
In April, Gerry’s second album ‘The Bonny’ shot straight to Number 1 in the Official Album Charts in the UK and Ireland and remains in the UK Top 20.
The Glaswegian artist reached the landmark after keeping to his word to deliver his record for fans at this difficult time – and they responded. Gerry posted:
“Numbers mean nothing. Folk blasting the tunes and singing them like they mean it means everything. Had my back since day one. Only reason I stayed in this game.
Shout out to all frontline staff.
Suns out. Look after the oldies. Cheers❤️”
While numbers might mean nothing to Gerry, they are impressive. Self-released, the album is the fastest selling vinyl of 2020 and its songs amassed 66.9 million streams so far. The record builds on the success of his word-of-mouth debut Erratic Cinematic, which arrived in 2017 reaching the Top 20 with no traditional promotion. It has already sold over 183,000 copies and been certified Gold. His collective career streams total over 230 million,all achieved while remaining resolutely independent.
The Bonny’ssingles amassed 53 million streams pre-release and 8 of the tracks from the album charted in the UK Singles Chart. The album debuted at Number 1 on both iTunes & Amazon Albums UK and sold 28,945 in its first week, despite inevitably losing out on sales due to the current crisis.
Having organically built up a huge following over the past 3 years, Gerry has become the UK ‘s biggest independent artist and his last tour was second largest in 2019 UK tickets sales.
‘The Bonny’ sees Gerry continue on his journey from cult hero to one of Britain’s foremost songwriters.
An already legendary live performer, his gigs have become folklore – joyous mass fan singalongs inspiring devotion and a dedicated following that has swelled, via word-of-mouth, to epic proportions.
