Touring in celebration of his sophomore album patience (out now via Sony Music Australia, here) which was released last November, James has a new found determination and authenticity, which is reflected throughout the record. Singles ‘Motions’, ‘japan’ and ‘Stuck In Denial’ have surpassed over 1.5 million streams between them. The album explores battles and the journey he has been on since his breakout selling album MITCH JAMES.
With a world tour supporting Calum Scott under his belt in 2022, the Long Road Home Tour will see James embark on his first ever headline world tour. Playing 30 dates globally, the tour will head to Germany, Ireland, France, Netherlands, UK, Australia and wrap up with 13 shows across Aotearoa.
To date, Mitch has toured the world alongside Calum Scott, Drax Project and Six60, who he regards as not just friends, but mentors. The same goes for Ed Sheeran, who Mitch supported in front of 100,000 fans across three nights at Dunedin’s Forsyth Barr Stadium New Zealand in March 2018.
Along with his advanced professional nous, Mitch has undergone significant personal growth since releasing the streaming hits ‘Bright Blue Skies’, ‘21’ and ‘Old News’.
To date Mitch James has over 206 million streams globally and over 3.3 million video views and the release of patience and playing live to sell-out crowds is only set to increase these impressive numbers!
