The Lumineers Announce Arena Tour in 2017; The Cleopatra World Tour Continues…
2-Time Grammy Nominated Artists The Lumineers to Perform in Grand Rapids at SMG-managed Van Andel Arena® January 26, 2017
Grand Rapids— The Lumineers announced three weeks ago during their performance on Jimmy Kimmel that they’ll be embarking on their first ever North American arena tour in 2017. This news came just days after the act performed at the esteemed Americana Music Awards, and on the coattails of a current sold-out North American leg of the Cleopatra World Tour, that included shows at famed venues such as Hollywood Bowl, two nights at Greek Theater in Berkeley, two nights at Red Rocks in Denver, and two nights at the Ascend Amphitheater in Nashville. The Cleopatra World Tour stops in Grand Rapids at Van Andel Arena on Thursday, January 26, 2017 at 7:00 PM with special guests Andrew Bird and Margaret Glaspy.
Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, October 21 at 12:00 PM. Ticket prices are $29.50, $39.50, and $59.50 and will be available at the Van Andel Arena and DeVos Place® box offices, online at Ticketmaster.com, and charge by phone at 1-800-745-3000. A purchase limit of eight (8) tickets will apply to all orders and prices are subject to change.
The Lumineers are touring to support their sophomore effort, Cleopatra, which has garnered critical acclaim and whose singles so far have raced up the Triple A and Alternative Charts.
'Cleopatra,’ the band’s second single from their new album, has already gone top 5 at the Triple A format following in the footsteps of hit single 'Ophelia.' 'Ophelia' has also since debuted on the Hot AC chart, following its record 13 week No. 1 run at Triple A (2nd most played single ever at the format) and four weeks No. 1 at Alternative. It was the band's third single at Alternative to go No. 1. To date, Ophelia is also the most played song in 2016 at the Triple A and Alternative formats.
Cleopatra is the first No. 1 Billboard charting album from an indie label this year (Dualtone, an Entertainment One Company), and is a major hit overseas with the album ringing up No. 1 sales in the UK, Canada, and South Africa to go along with the US top rank.
