Two-time GRAMMY winners LITTLE BIG TOWN today reveal that they will play anticipated back-to-back all ages headline dates on their debut Australian tour in 2017. The acclaimed four-piece will touch down in Sydney for a show at the Enmore Theatre on Tuesday 21st March, taking in Melbourne’s Hamer Hall on Wednesday 22nd March. Tickets will go on sale at 10am, Thursday 17th November.
Nashville native and platinum-selling artist, KIP MOORE, wowed local audiences with an unforgettable appearance at this year’s sold out CMC Rocks QLD, and will return to Australia to join fellow Statesiders Little Big Town on the road in March.
Additionally, both Little Big Town and Kip Moore will hit the CMC Rocks QLD stage, ready to unleash epic sets at the event’s 10th Anniversary celebration. Proceedings will kick off on Friday 24 and continue through to Sunday 26 March 2017 at Willowbank, Ipswich.
Little Big Town, the reigning Grammy Country Duo/Group of the Year, and CMA and ACM Vocal Group of the Year, will make their debut Australian visit hot off the heels of extensive North American touring. In 2015, the band achieved a career defining milestone when their hit single ‘Girl Crush’ took out Best Country Song at the Grammy and CMA Awards, and went on to become America’s best-selling country single of the year. With albums Tornado (2012) and Pain Killer (2014), Little Big Town have achieved further success in the way of multiple chart-topping singles ‘Pontoon’, ‘Tornado’ and ‘Day Drinking’.
Inducted into the iconic Grand Ole Opry in 2014 by none other than Reba McIntire, the group has chalked up in excess of 40 award nominations, and in the past five years has taken home close to 20 awards, including multiple Grammy’s, CMA and ACM Awards, and even an Emmy Award.
They have previously shared the stage with the likes of Keith Urban, Miranda Lambert, Rascal Flatts, Carrie Underwood and more, and are one of the biggest country acts in the US right now. With a brand new single ‘Better Man’, penned by none other than Taylor Swift, currently making waves at US radio, Little Big Town will be ready to blow Australian audiences away in March with their hit-laden repertoire and a taste of brand new material from the forthcoming seventh studio album The Breaker, set for release on 24th February 2017.
Kip Moore is the ultimate road warrior, having spent the past six years traversing North America from top to bottom, building one of the most dedicated, loyal fan bases in the process, and becoming a festival favourite. Armed with a live show that mixes the bombast and wild desperation of Bruce Springsteen with the rootsy stomp of Merle Haggard, Kip has a sound built on space and swagger. A sound that bangs as hard as it twangs, caught somewhere between blue-collar country music and stadium-sized rock & roll.
With multiple American Country Award, CMT Music Award and CMA nominations under his belt, and songs from his sophomore album Wild Ones now a staple across US country radio, Kip will be gearing up to top his explosive main stage CMC Rocks set, which was a highlight of this year’s proceedings.
Little Big Town, together with Kip Moore, are set to deliver one of the year’s must-see country music events this March – Don’t miss it!
