Passenger Announces North American Summer Tour; "Let Her Go" Up To 18.5 Million YouTube Views And #1 In Nine Countries

About four years ago, Mike Rosenberg took to the streets with nothing but his songs and his guitar in the hopes of financing an album and making some new fans. Fast-forward to present day, and Rosenberg (aka Passenger) is on a worldwide trek, conquering one country at a time with his unique blend of the humorous and the heartbreaking. Since his last run in North America, including a fall tour supporting Ed Sheeran and a sold-out two week headline tour in December, Passenger has been selling out headline shows across the UK and Europe. He joined his good mate Ed Sheeran on an Australian and New Zealand run of dates, before launching his own sold out headline tour of Australia last month. Now, Passenger prepares to return to North America for his biggest headline tour to date, starting July 10 in Vancouver, BC and wrapping September 7 in Orlando, FL (all tour dates below).

Passenger released All The Little Lights on Nettwerk last August; the album debuted on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart in its first week and has remained on the chart for 31 consecutive weeks. Stand-out single “Let Her Go” has reached over 18 million views on YouTube, and continues to pop up on Spotify’s weekly Top 10 Most Viral Tracks. Meanwhile, “Let Her Go” has reached #1 in nine countries, including Australia, Austria, Belgium, Germany, Holland, Ireland, Sweden, Switzerland, and New Zealand. The album was also named the “Best Singer/Songwriter Album of 2012” by iTunes UK, and featured on both iTunes U.S. and Canada as a 2012 Chart Topper.
