LANCO KICKS OFF GLOBAL SONY MUSIC ENTERTAINMENT & HARD ROCK HOTELS PARTNERSHIP WITH LIVE CONCERT EXPERIENCE
VEVO Offers Fans Video Show Playlist Highlighting the PLATINUM Selling Band’s Adrenaline-Fueled Headlining Set
Billboard Shares Exclusive Acoustic Performance from Oceanside Collaboration
NASHVILLE, TN – Jul. 27, 2018 – PLATINUM selling breakthrough band LANCO has been tapped by Hard Rock Hotels as the first artist of any genre to deliver fans a priceless concert experience through their global partnership with Sony Music Entertainment. The music-rooted multi-layer collaboration brought the band’s biggest fans to the Hard Rock Hotel in Daytona Beach, Florida, where they were treated to oceanside-sunset performances that will continue to unveil across all Hard Rock properties globally through 2019. VEVO shared the initiative by recreating the night through a live-show video playlist featuring songs off their No. One selling debut album HALLELUJAH NIGHTS (Arista Nashville) including their Top 25 and climbing single “Born To Love You” and their multi-week No. One PLATINUM hit, “Greatest Love Story.”
In addition to VEVO’s video playlist, Billboard exclusively offers a backstage acoustic performance of LANCO’s fan-favorite “Pick You Up” before taking the stage at Hard Rock Hotel Daytona Beach. Fans can watch here: https://bit.ly/2LTrunO
“2018 has been a big year for the band” (Rolling Stone) as they continue to “bring the full-band sound back to Country radio” (Newsday) and became the first Country group to debut on the Billboard Country albums charts at No. One in 10 years with their coming-of-age album, HALLELUJAH NIGHTS. As their debut album now boasts over 364 million streams as it “showcases a quintet both at the top of their game but at the decided start of their musical journey,” (Pitchfork) and proves why this year’s two-time ACM and CMT nominated group is the only Country band to achieve a PLATINUM single prior to a debut album release, with the two-week No. One “Greatest Love Story.” Following the multi-week chart-topping hit, their new single “Born To Love You” serves as “an infectious bounce to the band’s pop-country, small-town storytelling,” (Green Bay Press Gazette). “Make no mistake, these guys are country” (Country Living) as they’ve been named “the band to watch” by Bobby Bones, CMT, Entertainment Weekly, Hits Magazine, Pandora, Rolling Stone, Spotify, SIRUIS XM and more while touring the nation’s largest festivals such as Bonnaroo, Lollapalooza, Austin City Limits and Faster Horses. In the midst of headlining runs, LANCO brings their “undeniable chemistry” (Hits Magazine) as support on Dierks Bentley’s 2018 MOUNTAIN HIGH TOUR.
