Evans will now play back-to-back hometown shows at Newcastle Civic Theatre on Monday 4 September (just announced) and Tuesday 5 September (sold out), along with a third and final night on Saturday 9 September.

With a dynamic live performance that has been called “electric” by Off The Record and celebrated as “triumphant… with the perfect amount of energy and fun” by Entertainment Focus, the Nashville-via-Newcastle chart topper last headlined shows around Australia in 2019 as part of his world tour. He will return down under following a run of North American dates, and just a year on from his spectacular CMC Rocks QLD 2022 appearance, which saw him headline the sold-out event alongside Kane Brown and Brad Paisley.

Evans’ hugely successful second studio album THINGS THAT WE DRINK TO earnt him a spot on Billboard’s Country Artists to Watch list in 2018, with lead single ‘Day Drunk’ achieving 4x Platinum status in Australia and becoming a staple at commercial radio. Evans achieved his first No.1 on the US Country Chart with hit track ‘Kiss Somebody’ which also went 3x Platinum here in Australia and topped the Australian Country Airplay Chart for 25 weeks.

His latest EP, Life Upside Down (Warner Music) is a project that hits home for the singer-songwriter, and is a poetic timeline of the last year. The EP received rave reviews from fans and critics, including deeply raw, viral single ‘Over For You’ connecting “so strongly with fans around the world (Music & Tour News).

Morgan will be joined on his Australia and New Zealand tour* by 2x Golden Guitar winner, James Johnston. Hailing from Wingham NSW, James has had a mammoth couple of years performing on some of country music’s biggest stages, and is gearing up to play his new single, ‘We Grew Up On’ for live audiences around the country.

This August and September, Evans is bringing the songs of Life Upside Down to the stage, returning home for what promises to be a string of incredible live shows across Australia and New Zealand.
