Today, platinum selling Denver outfit, The Lumineers, announce their much anticipated UK and Ireland headline tour dates forOctober/November 2016. The Cleopatra World Tour continues in support of their number one selling sophomore album, ‘Cleopatra’, awarded 4*s in both MOJO & The Sun. The tour announcement follows the band’s show stopping performance at Glastonbury Festival and their recent UK headline tour, which sold out in less than 24 hours.
“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
