The Cleopatra World Tour continues in support of their number one selling sophomore album, ‘Cleopatra’, awarded 4*s in both MOJO & The Sun.

“All kinds of wonderful, full of atmosphere and emotion, perfectly showing off frontman Wesley Schultz’s breath-taking vocals.” – Daily Record

The Lumineers continue to receive critical and public acclaim for their live show, with their recent O2 Academy Brixton gig being described as a “triumphant, barnstorming performance” (Daily Telegraph); yet another signifier that this band is a force to be reckoned with, especially in the live arena.

Continuing the success story from their two-time Grammy nominated, platinum-selling self-titled debut in the 2012, The Lumineers’ Cleopatra has been an international hit album – not only achieving No.1 status in the UK, US & Canadian Official Charts but also charting at the top of the Billboard Top 200.

“To produce a second album as crammed with hits as their debut is a remarkable achievement.”  – Daily Telegraph
