With a sold-out show at the Hammerstein Ballroom, the British singer songwriter kicked off her North American tour in legendary fashion.
A few months ago, we met with Maisie at her sold-out Webster Hall show for her MUD cover. With her debut album You Signed Up for This fresh off the studio, the singer and songwriter set off on what had been her biggest tour to date. Since then, Maisie has experienced a huge explosion, one that has positioned her as one of the top names in the industry today. She has been everywhere this year, but like she mentioned to a crowd of thousands, every return to New York will always hold a special place in her heart.
“I have a song called ‘Brooklyn’ in my album, which ever since I wrote it, two years ago now, I pictured the day I could maybe play it to a crowd in New York,” she told MUD in March of this year. “I love New York so much. It just feels like a home away from home.”
She began the summer by joining Ed Sheeran's tour in Europe, opening for him at some of the most iconic venues that included Paris and Glasgow. Since then, Maisie announced three tours of her own: "I'm Telling the Whole of America" tour, which included New York and Los Angeles; the "Road to Brixton" tour in the U.K. which is completely sold out; and a special tour in Australia and New Zealand. In addition, Maisie will has two sold-out shows in Japan, and just announced that she will be joining Ed Sheeran for a part of his U.S. tour.
Without a doubt, Maisie Peters has earned a place as one of MUD's most exciting artists to watch as we head into the new year.
