LAWSON CONFIRM METRO THEATRE SYDNEY SHOW DURING AUSTRALIAN VISIT!

 

The Frontier Touring Company have confirmed that treasured UK four piece Lawson will be performing a special, all ages show at the Metro Theatre on Thursday 18 April when they hit Australian shores to promote hot new single ‘Learn To Love Again’ next month.

Vocalist and guitarist Andy Brown, bassist Ryan Fletcher, lead guitarist Joel Peat and drummer Adam Pitts have quickly carved a name for themselves since releasing UK top 5 debut single ‘When She Was Mine’ in 2012. The band followed up with second single ‘Taking Over Me’ which managed to soar straight to the top 3 of the UK charts.

Debut album Chapman Square was co-written by Andy and chronicles his own relationship breakdown. The album manages to find a delicate balance between rock and pop with the kind of bombastic guitars and lyrical anthems that echo the likes of The Script and Coldplay. The album rocketed to the UK top 5 upon release, managing to disarm critic’s preconceptions to become one of England's hottest exports;

“...their ear for a guitar-pop stadium filler remains second to none. “You're taking over me/ Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh/ I'm in ecstasy," they croon on a chorus befitting such elation; and with another stellar track under their worn, brown leather belts, we suspect they won't be coming down any time soon.” – Digital Spy

Having toured with everyone from Jessie J to the legendary Bruce Springsteen and selling out venues across Europe, the band have also managed to greatly impress with their live showmanship;

“The setting was minimalistic, but their stage presence was contagious... Brown is not just a pretty face; his smooth voice possesses maturity beyond his years.” – This Is Nottingham
