Good news if you’re a fan of Lawson and you’ve been hoping to see them live. The “When She Was Mine” band is not only going on a tour that will bring them to the main UK cities, they’re also taking their music overseas. Andy, Ryan, Joel and Adam will be playing a few concerts in the US this month as a way to introduce themselves to the North American audience. By doing so, the British pop-rock band follows the steps of One Direction, Cher Lloyd, Jessie J and The Wanted in their quest for US success.
2012 saw the beginning of Lawson’s career, which was followed by three top 10 singles and an album, “Chapman Square”, that managed a respectable top 3 in the UK Charts. It was also a very good year for British artists overseas, a fact that has undoubtedly helped other bands like Lawson or The Saturdays to try their luck in North America. Even though as a band they are certainly more modest when compared to the giant that is One Direction, their guitar-based sound and talent as songwriters and musicians is what could make them stand out, albeit in a more intimate setting.
Tickets for Lawson’s new US dates are already on sale and you can check out the full details of the band’s North American gigs below:
- Los Angeles (The Troubadour) – 24th January
- New York City (Bowery Ballroom) – 28th January
- Toronto, Canada (The Mod Club) – 2nd February
In addition to their tour, Lawson will release “Learn To Love Again”, the fourth and probably final single from their debut album the 3rd of February.
