Grammy Award winning artist Miguel has announce a brief run of UK dates which will see him performing at Manchester Academy on Sunday 18 October.

The news comes in anticipation of the 29 June release of his new studio album Wildheart, the long awaited follow-up to Kaleidoscope Dream.

Miguel first hit the mainstream in 2010 with the infectious first single All I Want Is You, from his major label debut album of the same name, a song which blended a stark hip-hop beat with Miguel’s creamy vocals to form a sound that was absent from the radio and established Miguel as one of the most unique and soulful voices in modern R&B.  Miguel’s follow up was his acclaimed four-time Grammy Award nominated, sophomore album Kaleidoscope Dream, which features his third US number one Adorn, as well as How Many Drinks?, Do You… and The Thrill.

In 2013 Miguel was nominated for a total of 5 Grammy Awards.  Lead single Adorn garnered Miguel his first Grammy Award for Best R&B Song and resided at #1 on the R&B/Hip-Hip Airplay chart for more than 23 weeks becoming the longest running #1 in the history of the Billboard R&B/Hip-Hip Airplay chart.

The full tour listing:

13 October   –   London, O2 Academy Brixton
15 October   –   Birmingham, O2 Apollo
18 October   –   Manchester, Academy

Tickets for Miguel performing at Manchester Academy go on sale at 9am on Friday 26 June priced £26.50 plus booking fee
