Paloma Faith has announced a huge UK summer tour for 2022. The 23-date The Age of Optimism tour will run throughout June, July and August and will see Paloma play a number of fantastic outdoor locations including cricket clubs, city squares, parks and racecourses with dates across the North including Halifax’s The Piece Hall.
The double platinum and BRIT award-winning artist Paloma will play The Piece Hall’s iconic open-air courtyard on Saturday July 2.
“I’ve been touring my recent album Infinite Things,” Paloma said, “and it’s been so invigorating seeing everyone out on the road around the UK. I’ve loved playing live again and I am beyond excited to announce my Summer 2022 tour. I love nothing more than singing for you all and hearing you sing back to me. There’s nothing like it.”
Performing an array of hits from her extensive and much-loved repertoire, these homecoming shows will have fans singing along to classics such as Only Love Can Hurt Like This and Lullaby as well as new songs from her fifth studio album Infinite Things.
It’s been a busy year for the singer with Paloma releasing her BBC documentary Paloma Faith: As I Am earlier this year which received praise from critics and fans for its insight into the pop star’s life and frank discussions around motherhood. She also entered the world of interior design with the launch of her Paloma Home collection as well as filming season 3 of Pennyworth and the prequel series to Stephen Fears’ movie Dangerous Liaisons.

Paloma Faith joins music legends Nile Rodgers and CHIC and Manchester indie rock greats Doves among the headliners to appear Live at The Piece Hall in 2022, with many more artists to be announced.
The Grade I listed Piece Hall in Halifax is a unique architectural and cultural wonder which is now considered Yorkshire’s most important iconic building. Originally opened in 1779 for the trading of ‘pieces’ of cloth produced by Yorkshire’s famous woollen mills, it is the only remaining cloth hall in the world.
Now an award-winning contemporary leisure, retail, cultural and heritage destination, The Piece Hall has welcomed more than eight million visitors through its historic gates since it re-opened on 1 August 2017. The 66,000sq ft open air courtyard, which is on a par with the great piazzas of Europe, is now home to a treasure trove of high-quality independent shops, unique restaurants, exceptional bars and welcomes world class arts and culture.
The Piece Hall hosts a year-round programme of events including large-scale music and sporting activities and food and drink festivals. 2021 included the Live at The Piece Hall series of gigs, which saw renowned artists including New Order, the Kaiser Chiefs and the Manic Street Preachers perform at the venue.
“I’m thrilled we can announce that the outstanding Paloma Faith is joining the growing line-up of world class acts for Live at The Piece Hall 2022,” said Nicky Chance-Thompson DL, CEO of The Piece Hall.
“Our stunning venue is the perfect backdrop to showcase the power, depth and beauty of Paloma’s voice. More than 40,000 people enjoyed great music here during the 2021 season and I can’t wait to see the crowds and feel that energy once again.”
