Glasgow musical phenomenon Gerry Cinnamon has announced the rescheduling of some summer shows but confirms he is striving to release second album The Bonny on April 17.
While some dates on his huge summer tour are delayed by these challenging times, the shows have already been rescheduled for August and September. And Gerry is pressing on with his album launch, despite logistical challenges facing the music industry at large.
“Anyone that knows me knows all I care about is folk having a class night and getting home safe,” says Gerry, “so it’s a no brainer to move some of the earlier dates. Not ideal, but pales in comparison to the shit other folk are going through.
“It’s probably not smart to release during a lockdown when the shops are closed and everyone’s isolating but no chance I’m letting folk down. Never gave a fuck about numbers anyway not gny start now. Album’s out 17 April.”
The singer also revealed he is spending his ‘social distancing’ time signing copies of The Bonny, many of which will be sent to randomly selected fans who have pre-ordered the album.
The singer / songwriter has become a phenomenon since his self-released debut album Erratic Cinematic reached the Top 20. It has already sold over 170,000 copies and been certified Gold. Gerry has gone on to hit 160 million streams on Spotify, with a current total of 1.5 million monthly listeners, all achieved while remaining resolutely independent. ‘Where We’re Going’ has now already passed 2.7 million streams across Spotify and Apple Music.
All tickets remain valid for the rescheduled dates. Fans are advised to contact ticket providers with any queries.
