We are really sorry to announce that due to medical advice from her doctors Gabrielle Aplin's North American tour due to start Sept 14th must be re-scheduled.

Gabrielle Aplin: "I’m absolutely gutted to not be physically able to complete my North American shows. I hate to let anyone down and this is not a decision I have taken lightly. I’m so so sorry to everyone who has bought tickets and who were looking forward to the show."

We are working with tour promoters to try & reschedule the tour for early 2018 and hope to announce more information shortly.

However for anyone who wants an immediate refund, you can get these from your point of purchase.

Gabrielle Aplin
It has been a whirlwind few years for Gabrielle Aplin whose career took off
when she built a massive fanbase by posting videos of herself singing online
back in 2012.
Aplin released her debut album English Rain in 2013 which spawned her
iconic cover of ‘The Power Of Love’ which reached #1 in the UK. With a slew
of further top 10 hits including ‘Please Don’t Say You Love Me’ ‘Home’ ‘Salvation’
and ‘Panic Cord’ English Rain is now certified GOLD.
18 months of international touring followed, where Aplin racked up a further 3
#1s worldwide. Getting the opportunity to play shows and go on tour all over
the world had an impact on Gabrielle and bled into her sophomore album
‘Light Up The Dark’ (2015) which displayed a maturing in Aplin’s sound with
the anthemic and ambitious singles like ‘Sweet Nothing’ and title track ‘Light
Up The Dark’.
Aplin’s creativity and songwriting ability is unyielding and in 2016 'Miss You'
EP was released on her own label 'Never Fade Record's and has reached an
astonishing 40 million streams thus far.
Following a summer of festivals all over the UK, and a tour in Japan Aplin is
bringing her show to the US with a string of live dates in September- October
2017. Playing a lively set that contains a mixture of her most loved songs and
some brand new music -this is a show from a unique talent not to be missed.
Within a few months of forming Nightly, singer Jonathan Capeci and guitarist Joey Beretta came up with XO: a bittersweet breakup anthem built on bright beats and powerful melody. Pennsylvania-bred cousins who bought matching Fender Squier Stratocasters as kids, Capeci and Beretta earned some positive early feedback on the track, and quickly uploaded XO to their SoundCloud page. We figured that, as a no-name band putting something out on our own, it would be a huge feat to get 100,000 plays in a month, Capeci recalls. Instead, XO surpassed that number nearly overnight and hit a million plays within weeks, generating major buzz for the Nashville-based bands guitar-fueled take on electronic alt-pop. Nightly soon began hosting showcases in their garage and ultimately inked a deal with Interscope Records, who are now set to release the bands debut honest EP. With their name translating as ’night, love you in textspeak, Nightly match their inventively textured sound with a guileless approach to lyric-writing. Its easy to hide behind clever lyric writing without really getting to the truth of the emotion. We try to stay away from that, says Capeci. We want our songwriting to be conversational, and to be real and open about relationships and love.On XO, that confessional spirit manifests in a breezy meditation on vulnerability and self-preservation. XO is about being half-heartedly in a relationship, and how that usually does more damage than good, explains Capeci, whose soulful vocals instill the song with a dreamy melancholy. Its about the kind of situation where youre holding back to protect yourself, but it just ends up screwing things up worse and hurting both people involved.Produced by Keith Varon, Nightlys honest EP explores troubled romance of all kinds. With its soaring vocals, propulsive synth, and sprawling guitar work, No Vacancy looks at the isolation that comes with lack of emotional availability. On Talk to Me͟—a track written in collaboration with producer Bill Lefler (Ingrid Michaelson, Dashboard Confessional, Gym Class Heroes)—heavy grooves and cascading guitar lines converge to offer up one the EPs more lighthearted moments. That ones about getting attention from someone you really shouldnt be getting attention from, based on their relationship status, Capeci points out. And on Honest, Nightly fuse fierce guitar tones, hard-hitting rhythms, and warped vocal effects to capture the romantic frustration at the heart of the lyrics. Honest is about a relationship where you and that person were on fire together, and then they move on to someone else and completely change their personality, says Capeci. Its saying, What we had wasnt perfect, but at least we were honest with each other.Throughout the EP, Nightlys deftly crafted melodies amp up the raw emotion infused into each track. Such ingenuity in merging pure feeling with sophisticated songcraft comes from a near lifetime of devotion to music, partly shaped by Berettas musical household. My dad played
guitar and my moms a great singer, and my moms dad played the organ like crazy, says Beretta, who grew up on the James Taylor and Cream records his father often spun at home. After getting their hands on those matching Strats, the cousins took their first step toward a shared lifelong dream of playing in a rock band. I got a blue guitar and Jon got a black one and we were just like, Were gonna be in a band together forever! says Beretta, who—a year older than Capeci—was 13 at the time. The following year, Beretta started playing in bands, landing gigs in bowling alleys or really anywhere that would let us play. Meanwhile, Capeci began experimenting with songwriting at age 15, and joined his first band with Beretta at 17. Although both headed off to college, the foray into higher education was short-lived. I dropped out after about a year and Jon left a year later, because clearly we were meant to do the band thing, Beretta says. Capeci and Beretta soon moved to Nashville, where they formed Nightly in 2015. With a vision of bringing an urban feel to the quintessential rock-band dynamic, they quickly carved out a sound all their own. With one of the first songs we ever wrote for the band, I just had this feeling like, Ive never heard anything like this before, says Beretta. Continuing in a rhythm-driven but guitar-centric vein, they eventually created XO, which fast made its way into rotation on Nashvilles ALT 98.3 in addition to gaining massive attention online. As Nightly amassed a following, the two began developing a live show featuring a stunning light display created by Beretta. Rounded out by Stevie Cunsolo on synth/keys and Nicholas Sainato on drums the live show taps into Berettas intricately designed display to help transport each audience into Nightlys own fully realized world—a mission that extends to every element of the band, including their artwork. Now at work on their full-length debut, Capeci and Beretta note that Nightly endlessly delivers that same electric feeling of first picking up the guitar back in middle school. Im always surprised by what comes out of writing sessions, Im always so happy about what we come up with, says Beretta. I feel like a kid every single time—theres always something to be excited about. That ever-renewing passion feeds directly into the emotional core of the band, adds Capeci. Id love for our music to be something that people listen to when theyre out driving alone at night, something that becomes part of the soundtrack of their lives, he says. Theres nothing like connecting with a song and feeling like the person who wrote it understands exactly what youre going through, and I cant imagine anything more satisfying than giving that feeling to other people.
