“The UK is a special place for us. In 2012 we performed an unfinished version of the song ‘Pioneer’ while we were on tour.” said Kimberly Perry. “The following night fans came to our show holding signs with lyrics from the song. It was a magical moment for us because we were still working on the new album, and it was so exciting to see the fans immediately connect with the message of forging ahead and being true to yourself, which ended up being the theme of the album.”
“When we returned to the UK on our WE ARE PIONEERS WORLD TOUR, we were able to reconnect with our fans and hear them sing every song along with us,” added Neil Perry. “It was such an exhilarating experience, and we can’t wait to see y’all this weekend.”
Since The Band Perry released their heralded sophomore album, Pioneer, they have been on tour nonstop crossing the world, from the United States to Australia and from Europe to Canada, playing to nearly a quarter of a million people. Their WE ARE PIONEERS WORLD TOUR had over a dozen sold out performances spanning the globe, earning the band rave reviews from fans and critics alike.
