Pharrell has announced a European tour

Pharrell Williams’ second studio album, “G I R L,” is getting a proper solo tour — in Europe, for now, at least. The “Happy” star has announced an overseas trek that kicks off on Sept. 9 in Manchester.

Williams was instrumental in three of 2013’s biggest hits – his own song, ‘Happy’, ‘Get Lucky’ with Daft Punk and Robin Thicke’s ‘Blurred Lines’. The latter was recently named as the UK’s most downloaded song of all time with and ‘Get Lucky’ came in close behind.

Pharrell’s third entry on the prestigious list was the super smash hit ‘Happy’, which he penned for the Despicable Me 2 soundtrack. The infectious track has sold 7.8 million copies worldwide since its release last November, and achieved not one but three stints at Number 1.

As if that wasn’t enough, it was also nominated for an Oscar! Pharrell also scooped four Grammys this year ‘ two for his appearance on ‘Get Lucky’, one for Album of the Year for ‘Random Access Memories’ with Daft Punk, and one as Producer of the Year.

Tickets go on sale on Friday 23 May at 9am.
