THE CLEOPATRA WORLD TOUR CONTINUES...
LOS ANGELES,CA September 27, 2016 - Two time GRAMMY nominated artist, The Lumineers, announced last night during their performance on Jimmy Kimmel that they'll be embarking on their first ever North American arena tour in 2017. This news comes just days after the act performed at the esteemed Americana Music Awards, and on the coattails of a current sold-out North American leg of the Cleopatra World Tour, that included shows at famed venues such as Hollywood Bowl, two nights at Greek Theater in Berkeley, two night at Red Rocks in Denver, and two nights at the Ascend Amphitheatre in Nashville. The Cleopatra World Tour will be produced and promoted by AEG Live & Messina Touring Group (MTG) and includes a stop at the iconic Madison Square Garden in New York City on February 2nd. Internationally acclaimed multi-instrumentalist, vocalist and songwriter, Andrew Bird and Icelandic band, Kaleo with #1 hit "Way Down We Go", will join The Lumineers as direct support on select dates. In addition the band welcomes Margaret Glaspy and Susto as openers on select dates. For more information please visit www.TheLumineers.com
The Lumineers will also perform at the White House October 3 as part of President Obama's SXSLawn festival.
The Lumineers are touring to support their sophomore effort, Cleopatra, which has garnered critical acclaim and whose singles so far have raced up the Triple A and Alternative Charts. 'Cleopatra', the band's second single from their new album, has already gone top 5 at the Triple A format following in the footsteps of hit single 'Ophelia.' 'Ophelia' has also since debuted on the Hot AC chart, following its record 13 week No. 1 run at Triple A (2nd most played single ever at the format) and four weeks No. 1 at Alternative. It was the band's third single at Alternative
to go No. 1. To date, Ophelia is also the most played song in 2016 at the Triple A and Alternative formats.
Cleopatra is the first No. 1 Billboard charting album from an indie label this year (Dualtone, an Entertainment One Company), and is a major hit overseas with the album ringing up No. 1 sales in the UK, Canada, and South Africa to go along with the US top rank. The Cleopatra World tour will continue into 2017 where they will be hitting major North American arenas. Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Saturday, October 1st for Madison Square Garden. Fan Club Members will have early access to tickets beginning Wednesday, September 28th.

Icelandic band Kaleo hit #1 at alternative radio with their song "Way Down We Go" from their debut album, A/B (Elektra/Atlantic), marking their fourth top 10 hit at three different radio formats. This fall, the band will headline the "Handprint Tour," a two month-long international run that is almost entirely sold out. Upon its release in June, A/B reached the top 10 on iTunes in 19 countries, 12 of which saw the album in the top 3, including the US, UK, and Canada. Kaleo was named an "Artist You Need to Know" by Rolling Stone, and a "New Artist of the Week" by Apple Music. The Associated Press called A/B "a mix of Southern influences, from soft and sweet folk songs to blues rock and jagged '70s guitar anthems."
SUSTO is a Charleston, SC based alt-rock/Americana band that was founded by Justin Osborne. The band's music is heavily influenced by Osborne's southern upbringing, along with his time living in Cuba. SUSTO has spent the past year touring extensively throughout the U.S., with notable 2016 dates including Stagecoach, AmericanaFest, and Austin City Limits. SUSTO's new album & I'm Fine Today
is set to be released on Jan. 13, 2017.
