Eurovision star Sam Ryder is to play a gig at Brighton Dome after his rise to fame in the past year.

The pop star, who took the UK to second in Eurovision with his hit ballad Space Man, is currently touring the UK and will stop off in the city hot on the heels of his viral success.

After finding fame on TikTok during the pandemic, the singer helped the UK secure hosting this year’s contest in Liverpool.

The tour comes as one of his first forays into live shows, with shows announced in January and selling out almost immediately.


He proved such a hit that extra shows were added and the tour will now include European dates and festival appearances in the Isle of Wight.

This will be the first time Sam has played in Brighton after gaining more than 17 million followers on TikTok. He is the most popular UK artist on the platform, eclipsing Ed Sheeran.

Sam will play at Brighton Dome on Wednesday, April 5, with tickets already sold out.
