Sean Mack's ATX Adventures: Sam Smith

Let's emote!

July 23, 2018

Over the weekend, Sam Smith brought his world tour to the Frank Erwin Center.  I must admit, I was a little...skeptical...of how much "fun" a two-hour long Sam Smith concert would be on a Saturday night.  Let's face it, Sam is an amazing singer...but his songs tend to lean a little on the sad side of things.  Well Sam is also well aware of this, and he actually addressed it a few minutes into the show.  He said his songs are, in his words, "really f**king depressing".  So, he made sure to have a concert experience with a lot of dancing and singing along.  Everyone had a great time-he had everyone on their feet throughout and his band and singers were incredible.  

My girlfriend and I had a chance to meet him before the show as well-he's very nice!  He also loves Austin-he has fond memories of playing SXSW years ago.  Come back soon, Sam!
