Multi-Platinum, award winning artist Johnny Reid announced his 2022 Canadian tour, Love Someone: An Intimate Evening with Johnny Reid. The national tour kicks off on February 10 in London, ON at Centennial Hall and is set to be one of the longest running artist tours in Canadian history with over one hundred shows once all tour dates are announced. Boasting a stripped-down set and stops in smaller communities that rarely get to see an artist of Reid’s caliber during a National tour, Reid is making it his mission to connect directly with fans across the country.
Love Someone is Reid’s 11th studio album and was released on October 15 via Universal Music Canada. A return to his country roots, the album marks his most inspired collection of songs to date. Complementing the album’s inherent intimacy, the tour will give fans a rare chance to hear Reid live in a highly up close and personal setting as opposed to the major market venues and colossal crowds he typically draws. The past ten years has seen Reid perform to over 1 million people; on this tour, fans can expect an uplifting evening of songs and storytelling with the chart-topping, singer-songwriter.
With an incredible 1.5 million albums sold, Reid is a critically acclaimed singer widely known for his lyrical honesty and musical capability, as demonstrated by an extensive catalogue of hit songs and Platinum selling albums. His illustrious career has also garnered him 26 Canadian Country Music Awards, 6 JUNO Awards and multiple sold-out national arena tours. Reid is also a recipient of the Slaight Music Humanitarian Award and the SOCAN National Achievement Award. His songwriting connects with audiences of all ages from across the globe, inspiring fans with his unique ability to uncover beauty behind life’s ebb and flow.
“The pandemic has taught me a lot about the value of time. I’ve given a lot of thought about how and where I want to spend my time. I’m really excited to bring this tour to as many places as possible. I can’t wait to reconnect with all of the people that have supported me all of these years in a more intimate concert experience”, said Reid.
Love Someone is the artist’s eleventh album and features 14-tracks in which Reid leans into his country roots. The album marks the artist’s most intimate and inspired collection of songs to date. True to Reid’s wide range of repertoire, the album is a refreshing blend of country, pop and soulful ballads. Highlights include the album’s lead single, the pop country track, “Hey Delilah,” the beautifully heartfelt, “I Owe It All To You,” and “Have A Little Faith In Me” a cover of the John Hiatt classic. As a bonus, the album includes a special acoustic version of Reid’s moving song, "People Like You," dedicated to the people of Nova Scotia after the devastating tragedy that hit their tight knit community in April 2020. In his new video series, Reid shares the stories behind Love Someone and reveals his songwriting process.
“Love Someone is a call to action,” says Reid. "The pandemic has taught us all a lot about the significance of time and how we spend it. We need to look out for each other now more than ever. ‘Roll your windows down, feel the sun, take some time, love someone.’”
