Kae Tempest announces UK and Ireland tour for spring 2022: how to get tickets

The poet and musician will hit Glasgow, Edinburgh and more in support of their new album

Spoken word artist Kae Tempest has announced an expansive tour of the UK and Ireland throughout April and May this year. Tickets for the shows go on sale at 10am on Friday 21 January. Find a detailed list of Tempest's tour dates at the bottom of this article.

The tour comes in support of Tempest's fourth studio album The Line Is A Curve, set for release on Friday 8 April. The award-winning poet and musician teased the album with lead single 'More Pressure', a synth-driven slice of anxiety pop featuring Brockhampton's Kevin Abstract.

Tempest explains, 'The Line Is A Curve is about letting go of shame, anxiety, isolation and falling instead into surrender. Embracing the cyclical nature of time, growth, love.

'This letting go can hopefully be felt across the record. In the musicality, the instrumentation, the lyricism, the delivery, the cover art. In the way it ends where it begins and begins where it ends.'
