Johnston says, “I’ve known Morgan since I was around 10 years old and he has been a huge inspiration to me on my ride so I’m pumped to be getting to hit the road with him!”

Johnston will be performing on all dates excluding Sydney Opera House.

Evans returns to Australia just a year on from his spectacular CMC Rocks QLD 2022 appearance, which saw him headline the sold-out event alongside Kane Brown and Brad Paisley. He also joined Paisley on his Australia and New Zealand tour along with MacKenzie Porter. On that visit, Evans added a last-minute hometown Newcastle show which saw fans snap up all tickets within minutes.

He last headlined shows around the country in 2019 as part of his world tour, hitting the road off the back of a hugely successful second studio album, Things That We Drink To. The album earnt Evans a spot on Billboard’s Country Artists to Watch list that year, with lead single Day Drunk achieving 4x Platinum status in Australia and becoming a staple at commercial radio.

Following his breakout in 2018, Evans continued to soar, achieving his first #1 on the US Country Chart with hit track Kiss Somebody which also went 3x Platinum in Australia and topped the Australian Country Airplay Chart for 25 weeks.

 With support back home and around the world, Evans continues to perform to sold out venues globally, with an extensive touring history that has seen him join the likes of Taylor Swift, Alan Jackson, Dan + Shay and more on their world tours.

His latest EP, Life Upside Down is a project that hits home for Evans and is a poetic timeline of the last year. The project features five tracks, including the previously released Over For You (Live In Melbourne), Over For You and On My Own Again.

“I called it Life Upside Down because this collection of music could only have come from this time, when my life felt exactly that,” Evans said. “To me, these 5 tracks journey through unexpected heartbreak, self-rediscovery, new beginnings and a new found gratitude for the present moment.”
