What Sam Has Said About The Tour

On the day of the first show, Apr. 12, of the Gloria tour, Sam took to Instagram to share an emotional video about their return to the stage after years without touring. “We kick off tonight in Sheffield and I’m so excited,” they said at the start of the clip. “I feel like I’ve been gearing up for this show my whole life honestly.” Later, Sam went into what inspired much of the tour. “What a lot of people don’t know about my roots and where I come from is how much I love theater,” they went on. “Even with all the pop shows I’ve done, I’ve always tried to bring an element of drama… and I really feel like this time I’ve been able to make the show of my dreams.”
