The Shires

Story by Jack Foley

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 May 2, 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! It’s been such an amazing year but we can’t wait to get started on the next, bring on 2017!”

The Shires released their new album, My Universe, in September, storming the charts, landing at No.3 and becoming the fastest-selling UK Country album of all time. They also joined the ranks of prominent US Big Machine Label Group Country artists Tim McGraw, Florida Georgia Line and Thomas Rhett, by signing an exclusive recording deal with the leading US Country music record label.

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..
