Passenger Announces North American Headline Tour Dates This Decemeber

"Rosenberg’s wordplay, clever rhymes and deadpan humor distinguish him from fellow musicians lumped into the expansive ‘singer/songwriter’ category." - Paste Magazine

"This man is brilliant and humble. He’s troubling and hilarious. He’s lighthearted and full of heart. His performance mirrored these contrasts...Passenger’s live performance is an experience. " - The Owl (live review)

"[Passenger's] command of the venue was obvious, as he was the only performer that night able to completely silence the crowd." - ConcertBlogger (live review)

" All the Little Lights sees Rosenberg shine at his brightest as both a songwriter and performer." - ArtistDirect

UK-born troubadour Mike Rosenberg, aka Passenger, will return to North America for a two week solo tour starting Thursday, December 6 in Boston and wrapping Friday, December 14 in Los Angeles (all tour dates below). Rosenberg will perform songs from his latest album All The Little Lights, which features standout track “Let Her Go” and has been on the Billboard Heatseekers Chart for seven straight weeks, where it peaked at #17. The album has also spent five weeks on the Canadian Top 200 Albums Chart, with nearly 4,000 albums sold. 

2012 has been a landmark year for Passenger. With his unique blend of the humorous and the heartbreaking, he has won the hearts and minds of audiences around the globe, performing live and selling-out venues across the UK, Europe, Australia and most recently North America with Ed Sheeran. The December solo tour mark Rosenberg’s largest North American tour to date. (Keep reading for more information and tour dates.)

Passenger began in the UK as a five-piece band with the big money label behind it in the early 2000s. They released a critically acclaimed debut album (Wicked Man’s Rest) but when the members of that band chose to go their separate ways in 2007, Rosenberg opted to stick with the Passenger moniker and trust in his music, his voice and his guitar to take him where it would. He took to the streets and discovered not only that the experience enormous fun, but it also proved empowering. In search of sunnier climates, Rosenberg headed to Australia in 2009. In only 18 months, he went from busking on Australia's street corners to selling out venues across the country and supporting artists like Ed Sheeran, John Butler Trio, Angus & Julia Stone and more.
