For a long time, it didn't look like James Blunt would have a career as an artist. As the son of a professional soldier, he was still stationed in Kosovo at the beginning of the millennium as a reconnaissance officer in a British tank unit. There he also wrote the ballad "No Bravery", one of the outstanding tracks on his debut album "Back to Bedlam", with which he conquered the top of the English, German and many other charts worldwide out of nowhere in 2005. His breakthrough was followed by numerous awards, including winning the "British Male Solo Artist" category at the 2006 Brit Awards.
2006 was also the year in which James Blunt gave his debut concert at the Olympic Hall. Further appearances at the same venue followed in 2011, 2014, 2017 and 2022, and he was even seen live next door in the Olympic Swimming Hall once: in 2013 at the "TV Total Turmspringen", when he performed his hit "Bonfire Heart". Now the English singer-songwriter returns to the Olympic Hall a few days after his 50th birthday. On 9 March 2024, he will perform many old hits from successful albums such as "All The Lost Souls", "Some Kind of Trouble" and "Moon Landing", but also new songs from his new album "Who We Used To Be".
