Custard/Atlantic recording artist James Blunt has announced details of his upcoming North American tour. The trek – which celebrates the recent release of his third album, Some Kind Of Trouble – begins Nov. 24 at Sherbrooke, Quebec's Palais des Sports and will arrive in Ottawa at Scotiabank Place on Nov. 30. The British singer/songwriter's "Some Kind of Trouble Tour" is slated to continue into 2012.

Pre-sale tickets will be available exclusively to members of jamesblunt.com beginning Monday, Sept. 19 at 10 a.m. All remaining tickets will then go on sale to the general public on Saturday, Sept. 24. For more details and ticket information, please visit http://jamesblunt.com.

Blunt is also poised to unveil his latest single/video, "Dangerous." The track's video clip will have its world premier via jamesblunt.com on Monday, Sept. 19 at noon. In the meantime, a stirring live version of "Dangerous" from the five-time Grammy-nominated troubadour's recent performance at Radio 2 Live: In Hyde Park can be viewed through Oct. 10 at www.jamesblunt.com/news,dangerous-live-from-hyde-park_103.htm.

Some Kind Of Trouble – which includes the international smash singles, "Stay The Night" and "I'll Be Your Man" – has proven a true global sensation. "Stay the Night," written by Blunt with Ryan Tedder (OneRepublic) and award-winning songwriter/producer Steve Robson (Carrie Underwood, Rascal Flatts, Take That), was Blunt's second highest radio airplay single behind "You're Beautiful" and a top 10 favourite in a range of countries, including Austria, Belgium, Germany, Italy, Switzerland, The Netherlands, and Australia, where it also received platinum certification.

A truly gifted live performer, Blunt and his band are currently in the midst of a European tour, with upcoming shows scheduled for France, Russia, Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Denmark, Germany, Switzerland, and Portugal. The "Some Kind Of Trouble Tour" is an unqualified sensation, having already played to fans across Europe, North America, Australia, Africa, and Blunt's native United Kingdom.

Some Kind Of Trouble finds Blunt in a delightfully upbeat frame of mind, capturing the talented tunesmith's newfound sense of spontaneity and excitement. Produced by Robson (with additional production from The Bird & the Bee's Greg Kurstin, and Eg White), the album – which follows 2007's acclaimed All The Lost Souls – marks Blunt's most positive work to date, with songs alive with energy and optimism.

With global album sales now at a staggering 19 million, James Blunt is without question among the most gifted and successful singer/songwriters of his generation. He first captured the world's attention in 2005 with his 2x RIAA platinum-certified debut, Back To Bedlam, which featured the history-making #1 classic, "You're Beautiful." All The Lost Souls followed two years later, debuting atop the album charts in 10 countries and earning unanimous critical acclaim for such hits as "1973" and "Same Mistake."
