UK country superstars 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 2nd 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!”

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 this year.

The Shires released their brand new album My Universe last year which stormed the charts landing at number three, and became the fastest-selling UK Country album of all time. 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.
