Amy Macdonald has announced two very intimate live shows this month in London and Glasgow to celebrate the release of her new single ‘Down By The Water’. The two intimate shows are at London venue Omeara on August 29th and The Ferry in Glasgow the following day on August 30th.
The live shows also mark 10 years since Amy Macdonald released her breakthrough album ‘This Is The Life’. She subsequently released four Top 5 albums in the UK, a success she has equaled internationally. Latest album ‘Under Stars’ reached No.2 in February, with the album also debuting at No.2 and No.1 in the German and Swiss album charts, respectively.
The beautiful and powerful new single ‘Down By The Water’ features backing vocals from Juliet Roberts, who also joined Amy at her sold out Royal Albert Hall show earlier this year.

“It has been such a crazy year – the music industry has changed so drastically that I didn’t quite know what to expect, but I have to say I’m blown away by the strength of the live music scene. I feel like this year has been my busiest year ever for live shows; I have been all over the place playing so many amazing places in front of so many wonderful fans. Something that has struck me this year is the really positive feedback I’ve received from the stripped down part of the shows. I always worried that people would get bored without my band thrashing away in the background but it’s been quite the opposite. The same goes for the feedback of my new album, Under Stars – people seemed to be most excited by the stripped down acoustic songs. With all of this in mind, and my love for getting out there and performing live, I’ve decided to go on a very special acoustic tour. There will only be a handful of dates in smaller, intimate venues. It’ll be back to basics but i think it will make for a really special tour. I can’t wait to see you there.”
