Sam Smith

In the wake of a vocal cord haemorrhage and the resulting cancellation of some of his Australian tour dates this past April, British Grammy-winning singer Sam Smith has announced he'll be returning this summer to finish off what he started.

The 23-year-old will head to arenas this November in Perth, Adelaide, Sydney, Melbourne and Brisbane, in that order, bringing along 2014's In The Lonely Hour (which has just surpassed eight million copies in sales) to fans who unfortunately missed out on his soaring vocals a few months ago.

Smith says of the upcoming tour: "I'm unbelievably excited to get back onstage and perform for you all again, and I promise it will be so much better than it would have been before when my voice was damaged. The past few months have been incredibly difficult, but the support, love and patience my fans have shown me is absolutely unreal.

"I am so grateful to every one of you. I can't wait to see you all xxxx."

The shows are sure to sell quick, with Smith's Madison Square Garden show earlier this year selling out in less than 30 minutes.

Tickets go on sale on on Wednesday, 17 June and you can scope out more information here
