The Lumineers BRIGHTSIDE World Tour has announced dates in Europe and the UK in 2023. The shows begin Friday 02 June 2023 in Dublin, Ireland and then continue through Sunday 09 July 2023 in the UK including their biggest ever UK headline show at London’s Crystal Palace Park on Saturday 08 July 2023.
The BRIGHTSIDE World Tour Europe and UK tour dates announcement is preceded by the band’s successful North American run which saw the group headlining stadiums in the U.S. including selling out Coors Field in Denver and the iconic Wrigley Field in Chicago playing to over 40,000 fans per night as well as a UK arena tour which included a sold-out date at The O2.
“We are so excited to return to Europe and the UK again and to reconnect with our amazing fans. We’ll see you out there!” - The Lumineers
The BRIGHTSIDE World Tour celebrates The Lumineers’ fourth studio album, BRIGHTSIDE, available now via Dualtone in the U.S. & Canada and Decca Records for the rest of the world. The 2x GRAMMY® Award-nominated band’s latest release includes such new favorites as “A.M. RADIO,” “BIG SHOT,” “WHERE WE ARE,” and the chart-topping first single and title track, “BRIGHTSIDE.” “BRIGHTSIDE” recently made history by ascending to #1 on Billboard’s “Alternative National Airplay” and “Adult Alternative Airplay” charts – the band’s sixth time atop the latter ranking in less than 10 years. The Lumineers now boast the most #1 singles among all acts on that chart in the span since achieving their first AAA chart-topper in 2012.
After forming as a duo comprising vocalist/guitarist Wesley Schultz and percussionist/pianist Jeremiah Fraites in 2005, The Lumineers first found their way onto the global music scene in 2012, with their Platinum-selling self-titled debut album boasting the massive “Ho Hey” which would top charts around the world. The group would follow up their debut in 2016 with Cleopatra, which would not only reach #2 in the ARIA Singles Charts, but also amass more than 116 million streams globally. All three albums, including III, smashed into the top 10 in the UK, with 2016’s ‘Cleopatra’ hitting the #1 spot on both sides of the Atlantic and is also en route to RIAA platinum status.
After successfully creating the world’s first major climate positive tour in 2020, The Lumineers along with their management Activist Artists Management are proud to continue their partnership with environmental non-profit REVERB.org, on this year’s tour. The band has committed to a comprehensive climate action program via REVERB’s Music Climate Revolution campaign, which, in addition to reducing the tour’s environmental footprint and engaging fans to take action at the shows, will support projects that directly and measurably eliminate greenhouse gases while benefitting diverse global communities. These efforts will make the tour climate positive; eliminating significantly more greenhouse gas pollution than the tour emits including fan travel to and from shows.
The Lumineers’ most joyous and spontaneous piece of work thus far, BRIGHTSIDE has been met by immediate critical applause around the world:
“A sweet slice of Americana that will get right under your skin…Rootsy, heartfelt yet understated, The Lumineers hold lyrical intelligence, emotional introspection, analogue instrumentation and old-fashioned flaws-and-all musicianship to be of higher value than trendy production or sonic effects.”
– THE TELEGRAPH (4/5)
“Every track has at least one super grabby hook…It demanded my attention. Beautiful and effecting wistfulness.”
“The easy melodic hooks that drew fans to The Lumineers in the first place remain, but the combination of stronger material and looser performances make for a strong fourth outing.”
– ALLMUSIC (4/5)
“Schultz and Fraites are masters of storytelling… What separates BRIGHTSIDE from albums past is a raw quality, like sitting in on a jam session. Strings are sparse, instead relying on piano, percussion and guitar to carry the record. Songs like the stripped down ‘A.M. RADIO’ with its acoustic guitar lead in have a simplicity that allow the craftsmanship to shine.”
– ASSOCIATED PRESS
“Its upbeat feel and finely wrought prettiness will satisfy Luministas for sure."
– ROLLING STONE
“It’s a compact production – nine songs, 30 minutes, much storytelling – stocked with the rootsy pop flavors first experienced on their 2012 breakout single, ‘Ho Hey,’ as well as follow-up hits ‘Stubborn Love’ and ‘Ophelia.’”
