Australian hitmakers Sheppard are to return to Europe for a string of concerts showcasing their new album ‘Watching The Sky’ which debuted at No.1 in their home country and has to date received 90 million streams worldwide.
Speaking of the tour, frontman George Sheppard says, “Every trip we make to Europe is better than the last. It’s one of our favourite places to tour and we are beyond excited to be coming back over to play for our fans in Holland, Belgium and London.”
Much has happened for the band since their 2017 UK tour supporting Little Mix, which saw them winning fans of all generations with their well-crafted pop songs. Current single ‘Coming Home’ is gaining traction in Europe, having sat at number 1 on the Dutch airplay charts for 5 weeks, and is now climbing the AirPlay charts in several other territories. The infectious anthem featured on the highlights reel of every World Cup match on Dutch TV, finding a new audience for a band in the market.
In 2015 their single ‘Geronimo’, from debut album ‘Bombs Away’, was a global smash hit, topping 5 million worldwide sales, 750 million streams worldwide and platinum status in 11 countries, including an amazing 4 x platinum in Holland and 2 x platinum success in the USA, 7 x platinum in Australia, with gold sales in a further 11 nations.
December sees the band return on the back of an extensive Australian tour. They will play 3 all ages shows in Holland, followed by one in Belgium, and concluding with an all ages show in London, England, giving an opportunity for fans to enjoy the full band performance in an intimate atmosphere.
