George Ezra has announced three new arena shows in the UK and Ireland for his 2023 tour.

The ‘Green Green Grass’ singer previously announced a UK tour in support of his third album Gold Rush Kid, which kicks off later this year.

The singer will now also perform at Dublin’s 3Arena on 8 March, before heading to Killarney, Kerry for a show at the INEC Arena on 10 March. He will then play a show at London’s O2 on 13 March.

Tickets for the new dates will go on sale Friday (22 July) at 1am BST, and can be purchased here.

Yesterday (17 July) Ezra played a huge gig at London’s Finsbury Park, which followed his surprise set at Glastonbury last month.

The singer also performed at the Platinum Party At The Palace concert for the Queen’s Jubilee last month, where he was asked to change the “day I die” lyric in ‘Green Green Grass’.

Speaking to The Sun Ezra said: “I think the reaction to it has kind of worked in our favour to say it was unnecessary.

“My gut instinct was that you don’t need to change it. I don’t know if it came from the royals or the producers of the show, but it’s pretty obvious that if you’re playing for the royal family and the powers that be say ‘We don’t want you to sing that lyric’, then you’re not going to argue.”

Reviewing Ezra’s intimate show at the London Palladium earlier this year, Rolling Stone UK wrote that “it was Ezra’s past charms and perennially sunny-side-up appeal that won through, especially with a closing run of hits that saw him going straight from the arena-filling charms of ‘Paradise’ into fan favourite ‘Blame It On Me’ and ‘Budapest’”.
