Conor Maynard follows #1 album with 2012 debut UK tour
Brighton's brightest star 'can't say no' to autumn 2012 shows, on sale Friday 24th August
Anything the Americans (and Canadians) can invent, we can (try and) invent better. They coined the phrase Beliebers for Justin Bieber fanatics, we've got full-on Mayniacs for young Conor Maynard. Yah. Boo. And Sucks. And like Bieber, Maynard is a product of the YouTube generation having spent his formative years performing covers of urban-pop favourites and uploading them. The likes of Ne-Yo and MTV fell over themselves at the lad's talents and mentored/awarded him, almost on the spot.
Unlike Bieber, Conor Maynard hasn't quite taken over the world yet and actually doesn't sound a great deal like him - we're talking a heavier club sound here, as demonstrated by forthcoming single 'Turn Around' (with Ne-Yo at the helm), not quite as poppy as Justin's efforts and, above all that, he's flying the flag for TeamGB, right? As soon as his tickets have been going on sale, they've been selling out almost as fast as his album, 'Contrast', which was released last month - it reached #1 with ease. Plus, to prove that Maynard is still keeping his feet on the ground, he recently appeared at Kingston's Banquet Records shop to sign albums - that's proper #oldskool.
So, after just two huge hit-singles, 'Can't Say No' and 'Vegas Girl', new tune 'Turn Around' will be unleashed prior to Conor's next activity - his first-ever headlining UK tour. Mayniacs - you'd better read on. First stop is home-town Brighton on 24th October, followed by Norwich, Leicester, Manchester and a whole load more until Birmingham on 8th November. In amongst that lot is a gig at the Shepherd's Bush Empire on 29th October.
We will have tickets on sale from 9am on Friday 24th August with prices averaging £17.50 (£18.50 for London). It doesn't take Dr Brian Cox to figure out that these are going to sell out pretty quickly.
