Postponed: Union Stage Presents: Tom Grennen
In the early hours of the morning after Tom’s New York show he was the victim of an unprovoked attack and robbery outside a bar in Manhattan. Tom is currently in hospital being assessed by doctors for his injuries which include a ruptured Ear, torn Ear-Drum and issue with his previously fractured jaw.
Despite this Tom is in good spirits but needs to temporarily recuperate whilst doctors assess his ability to continue with his touring.
Tom is desperate not to let anyone down, however we have taken the precautionary decision to postpone the Washington show tomorrow to a later date, with details to follow. We will update on future shows should changes need to be made. We wish to thank Tom’s incredible US fans for their support and understanding.
Doors 6:30pm / Show 8:00pm | Presented by Union Stage. NOTE: The charge on your credit card will show up as “JAMMIN JAVA”.
Born in Bedford but based in London, singer-songwriter Tom Grennan first found fame as the guest vocalist on Chase & Status’s track “All Goes Wrong”. A Hottest Record on Annie Mac’s Radio 1 Show, the track gave Grennan the chance to cut his teeth in the Radio 1 Live Lounge and on BBC Two’s Later… with Jools Holland.
But it might not have turned out that way. As a teenager, he had a promising football career, playing for Luton Town, Northampton Town, Aston Villa and Stevenage.
“I was close to playing over in the States but something was telling me not to and obviously it was the music,” he told Music Week earlier this year.
“My head was turned by music and people saying I had a voice!”
Tom’s first album Lighting Matches was one of the 10 best-selling debuts of 2018. Filled with huge tunes like “Found What I’ve Been Looking For”, “Barbed Wire” and “Something In The Water”, the album showcased Tom’s emotional, careworn voice, a rasp full of devilment and mischief as well as love and solace.
Tom’s new single “This is the Place” is a song about finding a place of complete calm and escaping utter chaos and carnage.
