Amos Lee To Tour the UK with Adele, Playing Conan on May 9th

Blue Note recording artist Amos Lee has been handpicked by British songstress Adele to hit the road with her for her sold-out U.K. tour in September. During a Stateside visit, Adele and Lee bumped into one other in Nashville, after which Adele posted two live YouTube clips of Lee on her blog, saying “I’ve loved [Amos] for ages. Just watched this and I fell a bit more in love with him all over again! Check it out.”

In other news, Lee will perform on TBS’s Conan on May 9th. His headlining tour in support of his critically acclaimed album Mission Bell resumes in Berlin on March 6th and returns to the U.S. on March 24th. Several shows, including an April 8th appearance at Nashville’s famed Ryman Auditorium, are sold-out. Lee will also headline the Zac Brown Band’s Southern Ground Music and Food Festival on April 10th at Clemson University in South Carolina. All upcoming tour dates are below.

On February 22nd, Lee gave an intimate performance at the Apple Store in New York City’s Soho neighborhood. The show, which featured new songs and fan favorites, was recorded and will be released through iTunes later this year.

Released on January 25th, Mission Bell debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard Top 200 Albums chart, earning the Philadelphia-born singer-songwriter the highest chart position and best sales week of his career. Mission Bell’s first single, “Windows Are Rolled Down” is currently No. 7 at AAA radio and has been on the chart for 14 weeks with airplay on more than 77 stations, more than any other current single at the format.
