Matt Cardle concert chronology

The Porcelain Tour was a 19 date concert tour by Matt Cardle in support of his 2013 album Porcelain. It took place over Ireland and the UK through April 2014, ending in Telford on 25 April.

Background[edit]

The tour was announced on 30 October 2013, with tickets on general sale on 4 November 2013. [1] The tour began on 1 April 2014 in Belfast, followed by one date in Ireland then moving to Scotland and England. Cardle played guitar and was backed by a live band. He was joined by Melanie C on three shows to perform their duet Loving You.

Reception[edit]

Joe Hoffman of The Upcoming gave 5 out of 5 stars for the show saying "He is an unbelievable musical talent, and he did not fail to bring it all to a sold out show last night at Shepherd’s Bush Empire" and "Cardle’s voice is incredible, with a falsetto that can send shivers down your spine."[2] Ann Clarkson from Native Monster gave it a favourable review saying "The vocals sounded effortless, which is a hard trick to pull off when you have a massive four-octave range and use most of that during one evening."[3]
