The Lumineers ‘Brightside World Tour’ is heading to Europe and the UK in 2023 – including a date at The Piece Hall, Halifax.
The chart-topping US band are the first headliners confirmed for Live At The Piece Hall 2023 – and will play the historic Yorkshire venue on Sunday July 9.
Tickets go on sale at 9am on Friday November 11 via ticketmaster.co.uk
The Lumineers ‘Brightside World Tour’ arrives in Europe on June 2, in Dublin, and then continues in the UK – including their biggest ever UK headline show at London’s Crystal Palace
Park – through to their Halifax date at The Piece Hall’s iconic open-air courtyard.
The Europe and UK announcement is preceded by the band’s successful North American run which saw the group headlining stadiums including selling out Coors Field in Denver and the iconic Wrigley Field in Chicago – playing to more than 40,000 fans a night as well as a UK arena tour which included a sold-out date at London’s The O2.
The Lumineers said: “We are so excited to return to Europe and the UK again and to reconnect with our amazing fans. We’ll see you out there!”
Live at The Piece Hall continues to go from strength to strength. This summer’s series of shows smashed box office records as close to 60,000 music fans saw headline shows from the likes of Duran Duran, Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds, Paloma Faith and Tom Jones.
Nicky Chance-Thompson DL, CEO of The Piece Hall Trust, said: “What an opportunity to see this fantastic band in our stunning venue as part of their world tour. Their unique sound combining the catchiest of tunes, evocative lyrics and the most skilful musicianship means this is going to be a very special gig indeed.”
The ‘Brightside World Tour’ celebrates The Lumineers’ fourth studio album, Brightside – available now via Decca Records. The 2x GRAMMY® Award-nominated band’s latest release includes such new favourites as A.M. Radio, Big Shot, Where We Are, and the chart-topping first single and title track Brightside.
Brightside recently made history by ascending to #1 on Billboard’s Alternative National Airplay and Adult Alternative Airplay charts.
After forming as a duo comprising vocalist/guitarist Wesley Schultz and percussionist/pianist Jeremiah Fraites in 2005, The Lumineers first found their way onto the global music scene in 2012, with their Platinum-selling self-titled debut album boasting the massive Ho Hey which would top charts around the world.
The group would follow up their debut in 2016 with Cleopatra, which would not only reach #2 in the ARIA Singles Charts, but also amass more than 116 million streams globally. All three albums, including III, smashed into the top 10 in the UK, with 2016’s Cleopatra hitting the #1 spot on both sides of the Atlantic and is also en route to RIAA platinum status.
After successfully creating the world’s first major climate positive tour in 2020, The Lumineers along with their management Activist Artists Management are proud to continue their partnership with environmental non-profit REVERB.org, on this year’s tour.
The band has committed to a comprehensive climate action program via REVERB’s Music Climate Revolution campaign, which, in addition to reducing the tour’s environmental footprint and engaging fans to take action at the shows, will support projects that directly and measurably eliminate greenhouse gases while benefitting diverse global communities.
These efforts will make the tour climate positive; eliminating significantly more greenhouse gas pollution than the tour emits including fan travel to and from shows. For more information go to www.reverb.org/campaign/musicclimaterevolution-take-action/
