Ward Thomas today announce the global live streaming of an exclusive concert filmed this summer at London’s historic Theatre Royal. Join the event on Saturday 10th October to celebrate the release of their brand new album ‘Invitation’ - out the day before on Oct 9th on WTW Music / eastwest. Tickets are on sale here.
The concert will be streamed live on 10th October across the following time zones:
UK & Europe: 8.00pm BST / 9.00pm CEST - £12 / €12
North & South America: 7.00pm PDT / 10.00pm EDT - $15
Australia, NZ & Asia: 8pm AEST (11th October) - AUS $20.00 / US $15.00 / Yen 15,000
(NB: Live stream in Australia / Asia tend to occur on the following day)
In this one-off performance, fans from around the world will have the opportunity to watch the twin sister duo play songs from their first three albums, including from their #1 album Cartwheels, as well as from new album Invitation. The event will also include an interval featuring a ‘Behind The Scenes’ Q&A for the girls with Radio 1’s Newsbeat presenter Shiona McCallum.
Hot rising US Nashville artist Devin Dawson is also set to join - a first for London and Nashville with two country music artists, one from the UK and one from the US, on the same ticketed live streaming event.
Establishing himself after filming a mashup of Taylor Swift songs with his fellow friend Louisa Wendorff on her YouTube channel, Devin gained notoriety and his debut single ‘All on Me’ became his first hit song. With the help of producer Jay Joyce, he signed to Warners in 2017 and ‘All on Me’ has charted on the Hot Country Songs and Country Airplay charts.
Largely produced by Jonathan Quarmby (Lewis Capaldi, Tom Walker, Finley Quaye), and mostly recorded in lockdown from their Hampshire cottage, Ward Thomas’s forthcoming album ’Invitation’ is a coaxing doorway for all into an exciting new chapter as the fog of a global pandemic begins to lift. There’s palpable energy by the bucket load, and many of its songs benefit from a coming of age for sisters Catherine and Lizzy and a new found voice sees them diversify their sound.
