Australian and New Zealand fans of Sampha, the soulful English singer-songwriter, are in for a treat as the artist has just announced his tour down under for early next year.

Coming off the heat of his latest album release, Lahai, Sampha is set to hit the stages across Auckland, Sydney, Brisbane, and Melbourne, adding a special resonance to his already confirmed performance at the Perth Festival.

The tour will also mark a significant milestone for the artist as he brings the exceptional Satellite Business residency to Aussie shores. Following its previous iterations in London and New York, Melbourne's Margaret Court Arena will transform to accommodate the unique performance setup.

For those in New Zealand, the tour excitement doesn't end there. The Splore Festival is also on the artist's itinerary, ensuring that the immersive musical experience reaches fans across the pond.

Tickets for the Perth Festival are now available for purchase, while the rest of the tour will see tickets go live to the general public on Thursday, November 2nd, at 10 am local time.

However, dedicated fans have the chance to beat the rush with pre-sale tickets opening on Wednesday, November 1st, also at 10 am local time.
