JAMES BLAKE two concerts in Italy this summer (Info and Tickets)

Music news

James Blake returns live with a unique and intimate show, which mixes pop with electronic music in a unique way.

Blake, after the sold-out in Milan in October 2023, he will be in Italy with two dates next summer.

Blake is the British singer, songwriter, multi-instrumentalist and producer who has delivered some of the most influential albums of the 21st century in recent years. Winner of the GRAMMY Award in 2019, the artist brings his latest studio album “Playing Robots into Heaven” live as well as some of the songs that made him famous.

In 2021 the British artist released his fifth studio album “Friends That Break Your Heart” debuting at number four in the UK charts and receiving mass critical acclaim. In the last decade he has collaborated with great artists such as Frank Ocean and Kendrick Lamar, as well as JAY-Z and Beyoncé.

His appearances range from “Stop Trying to Be God” with Stevie Wonder and Kid Cudi on Travis Scott’s epic album ASTROWORLD to “King’s Dead” with Jay Rock, Kendrick Lamar and Future from the chart-topping album “Black Panther: The Album”. The latter not only went triple platinum, but also earned Blake his first GRAMMY Award in the “Best Rap Performance” category.

At the same time, James Blake has become known as a pop exception thanks to his dynamic solo output. The artist introduced a singular sound with his debut album “James Blake” released in 2011, crowned by Pitchfork as one of the “100 best albums of the decade so far (2010-2014)”. Immediately after, the album “Overgrown” confirmed the artist’s rare ability to align artists such as Brian Eno and RZA within the same project.

From 2013 to today, Blake has accumulated important nominations and recognitions: from winning the Mercury Prize in 2013, to nominations for “Best New Artist” and “Best Alternative Album” at the GRAMMY Awards. His experimentation and talent have seen him grow exponentially over the last decade to become recognized as one of the most interesting and growing figures in international pop music of our century.
