Sam Smith might never tour again because they miss their loved ones too much on the road
Sam Smith misses their family and friends so much while on tour that they may give it up altogether, they have revealed.
Smith said that touring is “really, really difficult” and said they’ve had “a bit of a meltdown” after every tour they’ve done.
“You go away from all your family and friends for so long and then you come back and everyone’s changed and everything’s changed,” they said, according to The Mirror.
“You have to play catch-up, but you have to play catch-up knowing full well that you’re going to go again in a year’s time.
“So it’s really hard but at the same time it’s incredibly addictive because I get to meet my fans and sing for all of them.”
Sam Smith is ‘scared’ of going on tour again.
Smith also said that they get to travel to “incredible places” while touring – but it’s difficult to reconcile when they miss home so much.
“I don’t want to lose my mind, so I’m scared for the next tour,” Smith added.
“I have an on-the-road therapist. There’s many ways to handle it, but the truth is I don’t handle it, I find it really hard.”
You go away from all your family and friends for so long and then you come back and everyone’s changed and everything’s changed.
The revelation comes less than two weeks after Smith dropped a cover of Donna Summer’s ‘I Feel Love’.
“Highest song I’ve ever f**king sang,” they wrote on Twitter, “but a joy.”
“I hope you all like it.”
“As a queer person ‘I Feel Love’ has followed me to every dance floor in every queer space from the minute I started clubbing,” they added.
“This song to me is an anthem of our community and it was an honour and most importantly so much fun to have a go at it.”
Smith came out as non-binary in September.

Smith’s comments come less than two months after the star came out as non-binary and revealed that they will be using they/them pronouns going forward.
It was revealed in September that Smith had changed their pronouns to they/them just months after they publicly identified as genderqueer.
“This is a decision Sam has thought long and hard about, including doing a lot of reading on up it,” an anonymous source, said to be a friend of Smith’s, told The Sun.
“[They know] that it will take some people longer than others to fully get it.
“First the request is going out to mates and then it will be passed on to the music industry too.
“It’s an exciting and groundbreaking time for [them].”
