**** TOUR UPDATE ****
Local trio Little May will join Canada’s City and Colour as Special Guests on an extensive Australian tour in March and April 2016. Tickets for the national tour, announced by Dallas Green last week during a short promotional visit to Australia, go on sale at 10am local time, this morning.
‘If I Should Go Before You’, the brand new album from City and Colour, has garnered accolades from fans and critics alike and achieved a No.5 debut on the ARIA Album Chart earlier this month.
Hitting the road with City and Colour in 2016, Sydney-based trio Little May is age-old friends Annie Hamilton, Liz Drummond and Hannah Field. Little May have continued to make waves both locally and internationally since releasing their anticipated debut album earlier this month. ‘For The Company’ secured a triple j Feature Album on release, and includes the Hype Machine topping single, ‘Hide’ as a bonus track, lifted from the band’s 2014 debut EP.
Known for their dark tangle of raw lyrics, honest and haunting melodies, Little May are the perfect accompaniment to City and Colour’s raw and captivating on-stage presence.
On return to Australian shores in March 2016, Green will have full band in tow and will be gearing up for his most powerful series of shows ever.
**** Update Ends ****
On ground in Sydney, Australia, Dallas Green today announced that City and Colour would be playing shows across Australia next year!
Building on his previous audience by thousands with each Australian visit, Dallas Green’s emotive lyrical narratives and on-stage charm continue to draw new admirers to his dedicated existing fan-base. City and Colour’s December 2013 national tour in support of the album The Hurry and The Harm, which topped the Canadian album chart and debuted at #4 in Australia, saw him perform for over 30,000 fans nationwide.
City and Colour’s 2016 dates will provide a first taste of Green’s new material live, as the engaging singer-songwriter promises to deliver the same raw honesty and dialogue with the crowd that has become his trademark. He will be fresh from a one-off show in Vancouver with musical legend Neil Young followed by extensive US, European and UK tour dates, and will no doubt be raring to provide Australian audiences with a unique City and Colour experience, showcasing his stunning brand new tunes alongside tried and tested crowd favourites.
