Gerry Cinnamon has announced that he is rescheduling his biggest shows to date because of the coronavirus pandemic. The singer has revealed that he has rescheduled the biggest shows of his career until July 2021.

Speaking after the announcement, Gerry said: “Anyone that know me knows all I care about is folk having a class night and getting home safe.” Cinnamon described the decision to move the tour dates as “a no brainer” which “pales in comparison to the s*** other folk are going through.”
The star revealed that all tickets purchased for this year’s show will remain valid for the new dates. The announcement of Cinnamon’s rescheduled dates comes after the release of his new album, ‘The Bonny’, which was released on April 24, 2020, and provided a much needed pick me up to the physical music market.
‘The Bonny’ shot to the top of the UK Album Charts, on Friday April 24, with 77% of its 28,945 sales made up of physical sales and digital downloads (via The Official Charts Company). The album is also the fastest-selling vinyl of the year with over 6,400 copies sold.
The Glaswegian artist reached the landmark after keeping to his word to deliver his record for fans at this difficult time – and they responded. Taking to social media, to thank fans, Cinnamon wrote: “Numbers mean nothing to me. Folk blasting the tunes and singing them like they mean it means everything. Had my back since day one. Only reason I stayed in this game. Shout out to all frontline staff. Suns out. Look after the oldies. Cheers”
No1 album UK&IRE.

Speaking about the album, ‘The Bonny’, NME;s Damian Jones, said: “The outstanding ‘Where We’re Going’ reminds us of better times. A perfect partner to ‘Erratic Cinema’s ‘Sometimes’, this fist punching festival anthem in waiting is easily the best song on the album and the track that’ll constantly be on repeat on lockdown playlists
“Elsewhere, the menacing Spaghetti Western infused ‘Mayhem’, shows how far the Glaswegian’s song-writing skills have come. Opening with a lo-fi mariachi strum, the track bursts into a thumping widescreen banger.”
