Teen Sensation Jake Mitchell announces UK tour!



Fans of Jake Mitchell will be able to get up close and personal to the YouTube star as he embarks on his first ever UK tour this summer. The teen sensation has announced five dates at the end of July across Cardiff, Birmingham, Glasgow and Manchester, ending in Shepherd's Bush Empire in London on July 30th.


On tour, fans can expect to see a live format of everything they love on Jake's channel including live challenges, skits and some familiar faces, one of which will be his friend and fellow YouTuber Lee Hinchcliffe, who will be joining him on all five dates!


The 17-year old from Hereford first began uploading clips to YouTube in late 2013 and is one the hottest emerging online video creators. He has already amassed a whopping 1.4m followers on YouTube and tripled his audience in the last 12 months alone across several platforms, with many of his YouTube posts regularly receiving over a million views.


Ever since he can remember, Jake's dream has been to make people smile and laugh - his online channels reflect his love of life, family and entertaining. Regular followers will be familiar with some of his favourite topics, including ‘Annoying Things Parents Do', '10 Things Everybody Does' and ‘Annoying Things about Being a Teenage Boy'. Jake's relatable sketches & extreme challenges have won over his loyal fan base of ‘True Troopas'


In February 2017, Jake released his debut single 'Echoes' which charted at No.13 in the iTunes charts and has been streamed over 700,000 times online.


Commenting on the tour, Jake said: "I'm excited to go on tour and meet my viewers, and to create a live format of what they love on my YouTube channel! I have always wanted to perform on stage entertaining people, and I can't wait to get out on the road to see everyone!"
