The Shires

The Shires will tour the UK in spring 2017, performing at venues across the UK culminating in a performance at the prestigious London Palladium on 2 May 2017.

The Shires stated: “We are so happy to be hitting the road again in 2017 – we love playing in the UK, the audience for UK country is growing and growing and every tour and show we do, we see more and more new faces! It’s been such an amazing year but we canít wait to get started on the next, bring on 2017!”

The Shires have celebrated a landmark year in 2016. Key moments on the live music scene include a packed summer festival schedule, with their first headline performance at Glastonbury Festival on the Acoustic Stage and a performance at CMC Rocks to look forward to in Australia in 2017.

The Shires

The Shires released their brand new album “My Universe” in September, storming the charts, landing at No.3 and becoming the fastest-selling UK Country album of all time. They also joined the ranks of prominent US Big Machine Label Group Country artists Tim McGraw, Florida Georgia Line and Thomas Rhett, by signing an exclusive recording deal with the leading US Country music record label.

The Shires were not only the biggest-selling Country act in the UK in 2016 (including US artists), but have positioned themselves comfortably alongside more mainstream pop acts, being one of the biggest UK debut acts of any genre last year. The duo set the tone with their first album, “Brave” in 2015, becoming the trailblazers of the UK Country music movement, which has seen a sea change in the opinion of the British public, who have embraced the genre.

This year The Shires have built on this unprecedented success, winning praise from critics and fans alike, and landing endorsements from celebrity fans including Robbie Williams who praised their UK Country cover of his classic track ëAngelsí after they performed it for him live on Chris Evansí BBC Radio 2 Breakfast Show. ëMy Universeë has been Album of the Week at BBC Radio 2 and three singles have been A-listed at the station including, ëBeats To Your Rhythmë, ëMy Universeë and current single, ‘A Thousand Hallelujahsí, which is out now.
