The Band Perry To Kick Off North American Leg Of We Are Pioneers World Tour This Thursday



After a short holiday break, one of the hardest working bands in music today, The Band Perry, will pick up where they left off at the end of 2013.  Days into the New Year, the award-winning sibling trio will kick off the North American leg of their first headlining tour – WE ARE PIONEERS WORLD TOUR – this Thursday, January 9th in Penticton, BC at the South Okanagan Events Centre and will continue well into the spring. For their first-ever headlining arena tour, the band will unveil a brand new production, including top-notch stage and lighting design and a vamped up set list. The show will be bigger and more dynamic than anything we’ve previously seen from The Band Perry. Easton Corbin and Lindsay Ell will support.


The Band Perry wound down the European leg of the tour in early December, and fans and critics were equally blown away by their explosive performances. The UK’s influential Renowned For Sound hailed, “The band masterfully blended the rock and country sounds that they were raised upon with pinpoint precision. The band’s rock features didn’t end with their music, but were also quite rocky in their performance, with Kimberly, Reid and Neil all taking complete control of the stage and whipping the audience up into an utter frenzy.” Three Chords and The Truth went on to say, “as long as artists like The Band Perry are the leading lights of new country then evolution need not be viewed too negatively and the spirit in the title of the Pioneer album can continue to set the agenda” and The Music Introdeclared “The Band Perry have amazing musical talent, they’re built for performing.”


The Band Perry were recently hailed in the Top Inspirational Stories of 2013 in their home state of Mississippi by the Biloxi Sun Herald, sharing the spotlight with folks like Good Morning America’s Robin Roberts, Sarah Thomas, who is set to be the first permanent female NFL official, record-breaking long jumper Brittany Reese and more.  They were also named one of the hardest working acts, and only country band, across all musical genres by, one of the world’s most comprehensive databases of concerts and tours, a list they shared with artists such as P!nk, The Lumineers, and Local Natives among others.  The superstar-sibling trio performed 126 shows to hundreds of thousands of fans around the world in 2013, earning them the honor.


Come see why publications such as Billboard BizCountry Weekly, Taste Of CountryAmazonSPIN,Village Voice and more added The Band Perry to their best of 2013 year end lists.  Full list of tour dates can be found below.
