OF MONSTERS AND MEN went from the talk of Iceland to the top of the global conversation on their 2011 debut, My Head Is An Animal. Not only did the record go platinum, but it also produced an international smash in the form of “Little Talks. The breakthrough single earned a quintuple-platinum certification from the RIAA, made history as “the first song by an Icelandic band to cross 1 billion streams on Spotify, and landed the band a performance on Saturday Night Live. The group appeared on official soundtracks for franchises such as The Hunger GamesThe Walking Dead, and Beat Bugs, to name a few. In addition to performing at festivals such as CoachellaLollapaloozaFirefly, and beyond, they supported Florence + the Machine on a high-profile arena tour. In the midst of this rapid rise, 2015’s Beneath The Skin bowed in the Top 3 of the Billboard Top 200 and the band made a cameo in an episode of HBO’s Game of Thrones in the same year. In 2019, their third album FEVER DREAM debuted #1 on Billboard’s Rock Album Chart.

NOTE: Tickets for this event are only available online. Tickets cannot be purchased at the Red Hat Amphitheater Box Office.

New York-based brother band AJR is generating significant buzz with their unique blend of barbershop harmonies, dubstep beats, and internet-savvy lyrical references. The trio's success with debut single "I'm Ready" has inevitably drawn comparisons to fellow brother outfit Hanson, but AJR's eclectic sound and DIY approach put them in a category all their own. From bright handclaps and playful samples to energetic ukulele and guitar strumming, AJR have crafted an endlessly creative sound that always leaves fans wanting more on their unforgettable tours.  

AJR is comprised of brothers Adam, Jack, and Ryan Met. The native New Yorkers got their start as street performers, playing covers of songs by the Beach Boys and Vampire Weekend in parks around Manhattan. The brothers released their  debut single "I'm Ready" in 2013, tweeting it out to a number of celebrities in the hopes of getting discovered. The tactic worked -- the song caught the eye of SIA, who helped AJR secure a management deal. As the group's reputation continued to grow, they made their first TV appearances with performances on Good Day New York and VH1's Big Morning Buzz show. In late 2013 AJR released the I'm Ready EP, a solid debut that earned them opening slots on tour with big-name acts like Demi Lovato and the Wanted. A rising young act with talent to the gills, AJR have ticket buyers eagerly awaiting their upcoming tour dates.

Foals and Local Natives with Cherry Glazier

Local Natives and Foals with special guests Cherry Glazerr will bring their 2020 co-headline tour to Red Hat Amphitheater Raleigh June 2. Tickets go on sale Friday, November 15 10am at livenation.com, the Duke Energy Center box office, and Ticketmaster.

 

About Local Natives:

Earlier this year, Local Natives released their critically acclaimed fourth album,  Violet Street  via Loma Vista. The soaring, blissful and introspective new album features singles including “lush and searching” (Stereogum) “When Am I Gonna Lose You,” whose cinematic video starred Kate Mara and was performed by the band on Ellen; “Café Amarillo,” which FADER hailed for “illustrating a sort of emotional purgatory;” and “Tap Dancer” that Brooklyn Vegan praised for its “elegiac ache.” The band wrapped their nearly sold out cross country North American tour earlier this fall with Austin American Statesman praising their “unadulterated energy” at one recent show. 

 

About Foals:

Foals recently released Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 2  via Warner Records.  The album completes the artistic statement and striking state-of-the-world-address of Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost – Part 1, and the Associated Press says “these batch of songs prove Foals to be at the top of their game, making complex, brilliant music.” Part 2  was #1 on the UK album charts & Part 1 was shortlisted for The Mercury Prize. The album is available on CD, digital and vinyl formats here. Special editions include orange vinyl available exclusively through indie stores and a picture disc which is designed to be added to the Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost Collector’s Edition boxset.

Collectively, Everything Not Saved Will Be Lost is symbolic of Foals’ trajectory so far. From playing chaotic house parties in their home city of Oxford to becoming major festival headliners across Europe, they’ve earned critical acclaim (NME and Q Award wins, plus Mercury Prize, Ivor Novello and BRIT Award nominations) and fan devotion (1.7 million album sales, plus over half a billion streams at Spotify since 2015) in equal measure.

“Barenaked Ladies’ energy was contagious and set the stage for what would be a high-energy evening of sing-alongs and throwback hits.”
Billboard

“Even if you DID have $1,000,000, you couldn’t buy a better concert.”
The Plain Dealer (Cleveland)


Today, multi-platinum rock band Barenaked Ladies announce their extensive Last Summer On Earth tour of North America in 2020. Gin Blossoms and Toad the Wet Sprocket will round out the incredible lineup.

“We’re looking forward to getting back out on the Last Summer On Earth tour,” vocalist/guitarist Ed Robertson shares. “Having Gin Blossoms and Toad the Wet Sprocket out with us is going to be a blast. That’s a LOT of hits per night!”

Following their critically-acclaimed 2019 tour with Hootie & the Blowfish, Barenaked Ladies is ready to hit the road again and bring out all the fan favorites that have built them a long-lasting career and worldwide fanbase. The Toronto-based “cult fave” (Paste Magazine) —who have now sold over 15 million albums worldwide and earned multiple JUNO Awards and Grammy nominations— are also set to release new music in May of this year.

The tour will find Barenaked Ladies playing major venues all across North America, including a stop at Red Hat Amphitheater Raleigh on Saturday July 18. These dates follow their string of shows in the spring throughout the UK, which will culminate with a sold-out show at London’s legendary Royal Albert Hall.

This will be the 6th edition of the tour, founded by the band in 2012 – the year that the Mayan calendar predicted would be the last, hence the “Last Summer On Earth”. Barenaked Ladies headline and bring some of their best friends and favorite bands along for a summer of good times, and of course, great music. Past acts include Cracker, Big Head Todd & the Monsters, Blues Traveler, Guster, Ben Folds Five, Violent Femmes, Colin Hay, OMD, Howard Jones, Better Than Ezra, and KT Tunstall.

“We know the Mayan Calendar was wrong about the end of the world,” adds Ed Robertson,“but could they have been THAT wrong?! C’mon out and rock with us like it’s your Last Summer On Earth!”

VIP packages for Barenaked Ladies will be available which include premium seats and merch packages. The Gold packages will include pre-show soundcheck parties and meet-and-greet.  

The band just launched Barenaked Bytes, the official Barenaked Ladies app. The app will have news, information, and merch. Fans who download the app will have first access to tickets and VIP packages starting January 21st at 10am local time, with the purchase of a Barenaked Bytes bundle. Fans who have previously purchased VIP packages will receive an exclusive code to purchase pre-sale tickets on January 22nd.  More information about fan pre-sales can be found here.

Each ticket purchased will include a digital download of Barenaked Ladies’ forthcoming album, which is due for release in May of 2020. VIP packages and album digital downloads may not be available in all venues.

For Last Summer On Earth 2020, Barenaked Ladies is proud to continue to partner withREVERB to make the tour more sustainable. Since 2004, Barenaked Ladies has worked with REVERB to reduce the environmental impact of touring while also giving back to local communities across the US and Canada.

White Ladder: The 20th Anniversary Tour

Multi-platinum and Grammy-nominated, British singer-songwriter David Gray has announced plans for a 2020 North American tour to celebrate the 20th anniversary of his seminal album, White Ladder. TheWHITE LADDER: THE 20TH ANNIVERSARY TOUR” produced by Live Nation will kick off on July 13th at Artpark Amphitheater in Lewiston, NY. The North American tour announcement follows on the heels of Gray’s upcoming UK, Ireland and EU tour. He recently added his third 3Arena show in Dublin and is on pace to sell out the tour in these countries overall. David will be performing the multi-Platinum album,White Ladder, in its entirety as well as greatest hits. This will be a once-in-lifetime tour that fans won’t want to miss.

David Gray will bring his “White Ladder: The 20th Anniversary Tour” to Charlotte Metro Credit Union Amphitheatre Thursday August 13 and Red Hat Amphitheater Raleigh Friday August 14.  Tickets for the tour are set to go on sale starting Friday, November 8th at 10am local time at LiveNation.com and via the Live Nation app.  Fans can get first access to presale tickets on Tuesday, Nov 5th by signing up for David's email list.  

In conjunction with the tour, David Gray has announced the February 14th release of the White Ladder: The 20th Anniversary deluxe edition (IHT Records/ AWAL), to celebrate the trailblazing album’s 20-year anniversary. The global multi-platinum selling album, and one of the greatest, most heart-warming word-of-mouth successes in music, will be released on 2xCD, 4xLP, and digital formats. This will include a special remastered edition of the iconic album plus White Ladder era previously unreleased rarities, B-sides and demos.

Says David Gray, “What happened with White Ladder involved more than music. It was a sort of heart and soul moment of total surrender for everybody involved, for me and the audience. That was it. It doesn't get any better than that.”

Upon its 20th anniversary, it’s interesting to consider the extraordinary aftermath of White Ladder. Its success spawned a new wave of singer-songwriters in an acoustic boom that resonates to this day, a soul-baring lineage that can be directly traced from David Gray to the all-conquering Ed Sheeran. Indeed, Ed is a fan, known to cover ‘This Year’s Love’ live. Fellow world beating British superstar Adele is also an admirer, citing ‘This Year’s Love’ as one of her all-time favorite break-up songs.
