One of the hottest rising talents on the British music scene will be performing at a gig in Bristol in 2019.

Tom Walker has booked a date for the O2 Academy in April.

The 26-year-old has an enjoyed a highly successful year and has become a household name since releasing the incredibly moving Leave A Light On.

Walker was asked to perform the single on Channel Four’s Stand Up To Broadcast telethon last month.

He is no stranger to big crowds having previously been as a support act for the likes of George Ezra and Jake Bugg in years gone by, but Walker is now, rightly, a big draw himself.

Leave A Light On made the top-10 of the UK chart last year and his debut album is eagerly awaited by fans.

What A Time To Be Alive is due to be released next March – a few weeks before his Bristol gig.

Other songs which Walker is known for include Sun Goes Down, which was released in March 2016.

The next few months are going to be particularly busy for the Glaswegian.

This weekend he is Scandanavia performing in Denmark and Sweden, before taking in Germany, Italy and Austria ahead of a UK gig in Liverpool at the end of the month.

Walker’s visit to Bristol will take place on April 28.

The gig starts at 7pm at the O2 Academy.

Tickets, priced £20.20, are available at www.academymusicgroup.com/o2academybristol or on 01179 279227.
