CMA’s Vocal Group of The Year Sells Out Shepherd’s Bush Empire Show
NASHVILLE, TN – Aug. 5, 2010 – After topping international charts on four different continents, GRAMMY Award winning trio Lady Antebellum will head to Europe next week for their first headlining show at London’s famed Shepherd’s Bush Empire on Wed., Aug. 11. The concert is already sold out.
“We’ve been looking forward to going to the UK ALL summer,” says Lady Antebellum’s Hillary Scott. “I wish we are able to stay a little longer and travel around, but this will at least be a great introduction for us to the new fans and friends we are making over there.”
The group’s International reach has widened considerably with their smash single “Need You Now” claiming the No. one spot in Mexico, New Zealand, Switzerland and Brazil and top five status in more than 20 countries including France, Spain, Portugal, Sweden, Finland, Norway and Israel. The group’s second album has also climbed to the Top 10 on the album sales charts in the UK, Ireland, Holland, Japan, New Zealand and South Africa, surpassing GOLD status in New Zealand and South Africa.
Back in the States, NEED YOU NOW is the biggest selling album in all genres in 2010, tallying 2.5 million sales in just six months. Upon their return, the band will perform on Good Morning America live from Central Park on Aug. 27 before kicking off their first US headlining tour on Sept. 20 in Orlando, Fl.
