Following four critically acclaimed sell out tours and the release of two Top 10 albums, multi-platinum singer-songwriter Matt Cardle hits the road in April 2014 in support of his latest album, Porcelain, taking in 18 venues and cities across the UK and Ireland.
Released earlier this week, new album Porcelain includes hit single Loving You featuring Melanie C, and latest single When You Were My Girl, and was co-written and produced by Cardle, who also plays the majority of the instruments. The album goes even further than his previous efforts in showcasing his startling, inimitable four octave vocal range. On the album, Cardle seamlessly incorporates everything from rock, funk, soul, gospel, pop and blues to create his most musically diverse piece of work yet.

Legendary international acts, cult festivals and the most exciting new bands collide at one of the city’s most eclectic live venues.
It’s perhaps natural that, as one of the nation’s most unusual live music venues, our programme spans rock, pop, indie, electronica, soul, jazz, country, metal, folk, and the many sub-genres inbetween. The unique atmosphere and space of the building means it’s often used for anything from intimate acoustic gigs to stage-diving, sweaty rammies and slick, spectacular international concerts.
Supporting the best examples of the known and the not-so-known, the Arches stage is host to everything from the latest stars of leftfield pop, such as Grimes and Chvrches, to alternative indie rock acts such as Peace and Yeasayer, prog and rock heroes such as The Fall, Swans and Dinosaur Jnr, and cutting edge electronic talent, from Rustie to James Blake.
We also regularly plays host to international legends – from Martha Reeves to Ben E. King to Jane Birkin – and provide the perfect multi-room setting for various festivals, from Celtic Connections to the Glasgow Jazz Festival. In 2012, the hallowed arches played hosted to the UK-wide Africa Express tour, featuring Damon Albarn, Baaba Maal and a trainload of world music stars, and in 2013, the building was transformed into a sonic Cineplex for our own co-curated cult event the Glasgow Music and Film Festival, featuring live film scores and AV sets from Jeff Mills, Dieter Moebius and Raime.
“A classical gig in the vaults of Scotland’s dance mecca might sound an odd prospect, but the Arches proved the perfect setting”
