US country superstars KIP MOORE and LEE BRICE can today reveal they will embark on national co-headline tour dates this April. In addition to their already-announced appearance at Winton’s Way Out West Fest, the international hit-makers will tear up the stage for all-ages crowds at the Brisbane Convention & Exhibition Centre on Saturday 21st April, Sydney’s Enmore Theatre on Saturday 22nd April and Tamworth’s TRECC on Monday 23rd April. The run will wrap up with a show at Melbourne’s stunning Forum on Wednesday 25th April.
Multi-platinum singer-songwriter and one of country’s hottest stars, KIP MOORE returns to Australia for the third consecutive year, with a brand new album under his belt. Released in September, Slowheart has garnered praise from Rolling Stone for its “gut-punch of a vintage album, the vocals out front and clear as crystal.” The partly self-produced 13-song collection is evocative and profound, a warm and honest embrace of Moore’s rugged rock roots and a showcase for his innate poetic prowess. Lead single ‘More Girls Like You’ is a guitar-heavy rollicking country anthem which, in true Kip form, speaks straight from the heart.
Known for his electric live shows and adoring fans, Kip Moore is the ultimate road-warrior, having traversed North America top to bottom, coast-to-coast countless times. He’s currently halfway through an epic North American tour run, coming off the back of headlining UK dates through October including a stop at London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire.
Multiple Grammy Award nominee and CMA and ACM Award-winner, LEE BRICE, makes his return visit to Australia in April. Across three studio albums, Brice has chalked up sales in excess of 11 million, spawning five platinum and double-platinum chart-topping radio hits in ‘A Woman Like You’, ‘Hard To Love’, ‘I Drive Your Truck’, ‘I Don’t Dance’ and ‘Drinking Class’.
Released earlier this month, Lee’s 15-track self-titled record is his fourth studio offering and most evocative to date. USA Today named him “one of the finest singer-songwriters country music has to offer.” An established songwriter, Brice has penned songs for the likes of Garth Brooks, Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney, Faith Hill and more.
Performing to a capacity crowd at LA’s The Novo, Brice is in the midst of extensive North American dates. Billboard hailed a recent show as, “… the night belonged to Brice, who demonstrated once again why he is one of the most respected artists out in the genre right now… he simply keeps raising the bar to new heights”.
Neither Kip nor Lee are strangers to Australian shores, with both artists hitting the annual CMC Rocks QLD festival in 2016 to huge acclaim, Lee following up an epic performance at the 2015 event, and Kip returning to this year’s festival for an anticipated follow-up appearance.
With millions of record sales, streams, and Youtube views, thousands of miles of touring and countless sold out shows between them, Kip Moore and Lee Brice’s April dates will be some of the most explosive country shows to land in Australia this year!
