THE HIGH KINGS ANNOUNCE USA SUMMER & FALL TOUR DATES ON THE ’GRACE & GLORY TOUR’
The High Kings, often referred to as ‘the true heirs of Ireland’s folk heritage’, have just announced the Summer & Fall Schedule for their ‘Grace & Glory Tour’ following unprecedented demand for tickets on their recent US Tour in March 2017, which saw most shows sell-out well in advance.
The High Kings live shows are legendary across the world, enjoyed by millions of music fans over their 9 year career. Their unique brand of high-octane balladry and folk has won them numerous accolades and the new studio album, Grace & Glory continues that tradition. In its first week of release the album went to #1 in the Irish Independent Album Charts and received widespread critical acclaim, and charted in the Top 10 in the USA, Germany and the UK.
The Grace & Glory Tour features songs from the new album as well as many fan favorites from their catalogue. The tour begins in early August in Waterloo, IA and ends at the legendary Somerville Theatre in Boston, MA at the end of September.
Speaking at the announcement, Finbarr Clancy said “Since the passing of The Clancy Brothers and The Dubliners, we have become the bearers of the torch, bringing the songs and traditions of Ireland to a new global audience. We relish this challenge and are truly honored to be representing our generation. The High Kings will strive to deliver perfection wherever we go, and we are very much looking forward to seeing our US fans, old and new, on our forthcoming tour dates in 2017”
