Multi-award winning singer-songwriter, Kezia Gill is getting ready to hit the road to perform across England, Ireland, Scotland and Wales this Autumn. She will be illuminating stages in some major cities and also some venues a little off the beaten track, such as her hometown of Derby, which is where the tour kicks off on Saturday 12th November. Her special guests are US Artist Brian Collins, who will perform at all tour dates apart from Western-Super-Mere, where Welsh Artist Eleri Angharad will open the show.
The response to the tour has been phenomenal, with a handful of shows selling out within days of the announcement, resulting in the addition of three more dates, including a second one in London which sold out in record time. After performing at a string of UK festivals, including C2C, Buckle and Boots, Wilderness and The British Country Music Festival, she has certainly picked up an army of new fans. There were a couple of real 'pinch-me' moments during the festival season when, in June, Kezia performed in a writers' round with US country star Cam at The Black Deer and in August a surprise guest appearance as she took to the main stage during Marty Stuart & His Fabulous Superlatives' headline set at The Long Road. Following that, most of the remaining tickets for her tour were snapped up and we can reveal today that the tour is 95% SOLD OUT with only two dates with limited tickets left (Cardiff and Dublin).
INTRODUCING KEZIA'S SPECIAL GUESTS
Brian will join Kezia on all UK tour dates except Western-Super-Mere
Hailing from the music hotbed of West Georgia in the US, Brian’s hardworking nature has landed him opening slots for many reputable artists in nearly every genre. As a result of Brian’s versatility, he has shared stages with KISS, Alabama, Zac Brown Band, Kip Moore, Blackberry Smoke and Lynyrd Skynyrd, among others. He was named an ‘Artist to Watch’ by CMA, Billboard, and CMT.
Brian claimed the title of highest independent charting artist on the Music Row Country Breakout Chart with his uplifting sophomore Top 10 single “Shine A Little Love”, which went No.1 on CMT’s Pure 12-Pack Countdown for seven weeks in a row back in 2015. Later singles that followed charted in the Top 20. Brian is excited to be coming over to the UK on Tour with Kezia and has some new music on the horizon!
