Homegrown multi ARIA award winning, singer-songwriter Amy Shark has today emphatically confirmed that her CRY FOREVER national tour will proceed as scheduled in June/July and also announced that a brand new Newcastle Entertainment Centre show on Friday 11 June will be added due to the huge demand from local Newcastle fans. Tickets will go on sale for the Newcastle show at 11am on Friday 16 April from www.amyshark.com.
In what will be one of the first arena tours globally since COVID-19 struck last year, Amy has committed to deliver for her fans and do whatever it takes for the national CRY FOREVER tour to go ahead as scheduled. To do so, fully reserved seating will be implemented at Amy’s shows in Sydney, Melbourne, Adelaide and Perth, with existing ticketholders able to convert their standing floor tickets to allocated seats on the floor. And fans will be happy to know that the shows will feature full arena production for what will be a true world class event.
“It’s been a very hard time for live music, both for artists and fans, with many tours having to postpone or cancel for reasons out of their control. This album is very important to me, so making these shows happen is my number one priority. I know you have been looking forward to this tour and these shows as much as I have, so we have made some changes which has involved converting the standing floor tickets to reserved seating at some of the shows to ensure we are aligned with the COVID-safe guidelines. By making these changes, it means the shows will go ahead,” explains Amy. “I was willing to do whatever it took to get this tour on the road. I’m so excited to play my biggest shows to date and am currently putting together a rather impressive show for you!”
The CRY FOREVER tour will be Amy Shark’s most ambitious live undertaking yet in some of the largest venues Australia has to offer, delivering a brand new show with A1 production and musicianship that is set to bring her new album to life. Armed with a bunch of new songs and some impressive ARIA wins (including ‘Best Australian Live Act’ which she picked up for her last tour, along with ‘Best Pop Release’ for ‘Everybody Rise’), the Gold Coast local is no stranger to the big stage and sure knows how to put on an impressive show, and with support from exciting newcomers Evie Irie and Teenage Joans – this is a tour not to be missed.
The tour will now kick off at Newcastle Entertainment Centre on June 11, before moving to Qudos Bank Arena (Sydney) on June 12, Rod Laver Arena (Melbourne) on June 18, Wrest Point Lawns (Hobart) June 19, HOTA (Gold Coast) June 25, Riverstage (Brisbane) June 26, Adelaide Entertainment Centre July 1 and will finish up in Perth at RAC Arena on July 3.
Set for release later this month, the new album CRY FOREVER is the follow up to Amy Shark’s 2018 #1 ARIA Album Of The Year, LOVE MONSTER and is available to pre-order now via Wonderlick/Sony Music Entertainment. Written and recorded between the US, UK, New Zealand and Shark’s home studio on the Gold Coast, her exceptional songwriting is on full display here, co-producing with A-List producers: Dann Hume (ARIA 2018 & 2019 Producer Of The year), M-Phazes (Ruel, Eminem), Joel Little (Lorde, Taylor Swift), Jamie Hartman (Lewis Capaldi, Rag ‘n’ Bone Man), Dan Wilson (Adele, Leon Bridges) and Sammy Witte (Harry Styles, King Princess).
