Exactly a month after she was announced as one of the headliners for next year’s CMC Rocks festival, Lainey Wilson has today (November 6) announced a pair of her own sideshows.
After taking to the stage at CMC Rocks 2024 – which runs in Ipswich over the weekend of Friday March 15 to Sunday 17 – Wilson will head down to Naarm/Melbourne, where she’ll perform at Margaret Court Arena on Wednesday March 20. Two days later, on Friday March 22, she’ll wrap up her short Australian tour with a show at Eora/Sydney’s Hordern Pavilion.
Wilson’s headline shows will be supported by Jackson Dean and Kameron Marlowe, both of whom will also perform at CMC Rocks. Tickets to both shows go on sale at 2pm AEDT next Monday (November 13), following presales for Wilson’s Wild Horses fan club and Frontier Touring members (which will run over 48 hours starting at 2pm this Wednesday, November 8). See here for details on all ticket sales.
In a press release, Wilson herself noted that she was looking forward to hitting the road: “There's no better feeling than putting on a show for a group of folks who have supported from afar for so long. I’m so excited to bring the Lainey Wilson: LIVE tour overseas next year. My crew and I can't wait to bring this show to Europe and Australia and perform in some brand-new cities for the first time.”
These shows will mark Wilson’s first time touring Down Under. Fans can expect setlists covering all four of her studio albums – the most recent of which, Bell Bottom Country, arrived last October and won Album Of The Year at the 58th Academy Of Country Music Awards.
