Scotty McCreery Celebrates Sold-Out European Tour in Germany & UK

German and English audiences fell in love with the ACM, BMI, CMT and NSAI Award-winning Scotty McCreery this
past week as the Triple Tigers/Sony recording artist performed in both
countries for the first time, selling-out all five shows on his
first-ever European tour with
Six Shooter Country calling McCreery’s London show “music heaven.” The dates coincided with Country Music Week in both countries.

“This was an incredible week,” said an exuberant McCreery. “The
audiences have been amazing. They knew the words to every song – not
just the hits, but all the album tracks. As a songwriter, hearing an
audience in another country across the ocean sing ‘Five More Minutes’
back to me is such an emotional experience. I can’t wait to come back to
England and Germany, and also perform in other counties in the UK and
Europe as well.  We will be back!”

“McCreery made it worth the wait for UK fans with one of the standout performances of Country Music Week…,” Entertainment-Focus said
of the North Carolina native’s first London show. “He delivered a
high-energy, fun and entertaining show with plenty of personality,
excellent vocals and warm, easy-going stage presence, all adding up to
create an absolutely electric atmosphere at Bush Hall. It’s clear that
the UK audiences absolutely love him and based on their response last
night hopefully it won’t be too long before he’s back here – and playing
to even bigger venues…”

The five sold out shows on McCreery’s European Tour were as follows:

Oct. 23 | Berlin, Germany | PrivatClub

Oct. 24 | Cologne, Germany | Helios 37

Oct. 26 | London, England | Bush Hall

Oct. 27 | Manchester, England | Manchester Academy 2

Oct. 28 | London, England | Bush Hall

“It was an absolute pleasure and honor to have Scotty McCreery and his
team in Germany for our first Country Music Week,” said Sina Hall,
Promoter, Semmel Concerts / Sound of Nashville. “They delivered two
amazing sold-out shows with a dedicated audience that sang along to
every word. We’re very much looking forward to working together more in
the near future and build on this success.”

The first London show (Oct. 26) sold out in just over an hour when
tickets originally went on sale, so a second show was quickly announced
(Oct. 28) and it sold out in less than four hours. Due to demand, the
Manchester show (10/27), which sold out within hours after going on
sale, was upgraded into the larger Manchester Academy 2 venue, which
also sold out.

“It was a delight to bring Scotty to the UK for the first time as part
of Country Music Week,” said Alex Simmonds, Promoter, SJM Concerts.
“Watching him perform such an intimate show at Bush Hall was electric.
For the fans who were quick enough to grab a ticket to all three shows
before they sold out, it will be a night I’m sure they won’t soon
forget. We can’t wait to bring Scotty back to the UK in bigger venues
and to more cities.”

McCreery will hit the road in the United States with Old Dominion on
Nov. 1 in Tampa, kicking off a series of dates as part of the band’s
“Make It Sweet” Tour. He will host the iHeartCountry “One Night for Our
Military” Veteran’s Day radio special, airing on iHeartCountry radio
stations on Nov. 11, where he will also perform along with artists Jason
Aldean and Kelsea Ballerini. In December, the singer/songwriter will
begin work on his next album, the follow up to Seasons Change, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard
Top Country Albums Chart and featured two back-to-back No. 1 hits: the
Platinum-certified “Five More Minutes” and the Platinum-certified “This
is It,” as well as his current single “In Between,” which is climbing
the country single charts.
