A breakout Country sensation in the U.S. and beyond, Warner Music Nashville / Warner Bros. Records’ MORGAN EVANS is extending his international reach with the announcement of six shows in Europe this summer. Showcasing his “eclectic musicality” (MusicRow) and “phenomenal solo set” (Rolling Stone) overseas, the Australia native is set for five headline dates across multiple cities and a top-notch festival appearance at The Long Road in Lutterworth, U.K.
Announced dates, cities and venues for Morgan Evans’ WORLD TOUR:
September 3 – Dublin, Ireland – Green Room at The Academy
September 4 – Glasgow, Scotland – Oran Mor
September 5 – Liverpool, U.K. – Arts Club Loft
September 6 – London, U.K. – Borderline
September 7 – Lutterworth, U.K. – The Long Road Festival
September 9 – Berlin, Germany – Frannz Club
Tickets will be available starting Friday (3/29), and can be purchased via MorganEvansMusic.com. The performances mark a return to the U.K. for Evans, who has built a fan base across the pond with previous headline shows and a 2018 appearance at the widely popular C2C Festival in both London and Glasgow.
This European run adds to Evans’ jam-packed tour schedule ahead as he’ll join Rascal Flatts’ SUMMER PLAYLIST TOUR and make several high-profile festival performances including Tortuga Music Festival, Country Thunder, Off The Rails Festival, Carolina Country Music Festival, Country LakeShake and more. The star-on-the-rise just wrapped the first leg of DAN + SHAY THE TOUR, serving as direct support and kicking off the party night after night with his “undeniable positivity” (Billboard) and “sheer talent” (Taste Of Country).
Fans will be tipping back drinks and singing along all summer to Evans’ Top-40-and-climbing single “Day Drunk.” The global smash spent 25 consecutive weeks at #1 on Country radio in Australia. Additionally, the track spent 2 weeks at #1 on the TMN Hot 100 airplay chart, making Evans the first Country artist to achieve this feat since 2009 when Taylor Swift reached the top of the chart with “Love Story.”
“Day Drunk” follows Evans’ #1, GOLD-certified debut “Kiss Somebody,” which has amassed nearly 85 million total streams. Both songs are featured on his debut U.S. album, THINGS THAT WE DRINK TO, lauded by Rolling Stone as “a truly revealing debut, both personally and artistically.”
With a Top 10 album, chart-topping singles and appearances on some of Country music’s hottest tours, Evans is one of the genre’s most exciting up-and-comers to keep an eye on. Named to PEOPLE magazine’s coveted “Ones To Watch” list and dubbed “the Nashville sensation,” he has been recognized by MusicRow Magazine as one of 2019’s “Next Big Thing” artists and spotlighted by Billboard, Rolling Stone, Pandora, SiriusXM and more.
