ACCLAIMED COUNTRY PERFORMER’S HEADLINING RUN BEGINS TONIGHT (9/3) IN DUBLIN, IRELAND
International star MORGAN EVANS is kicking off an exciting season of globe-trotting tonight (9/3), with his highly-anticipated WORLD TOUR getting underway in Dublin, Ireland.
Spanning eight countries and more than 25 dates through this fall and winter, the run will put Evans’ acclaimed live show in front of audiences across three continents, including his native country Australia. Known for his thrilling, one-of-a-kind performances, tickets for the shows are already going fast – boasting eight advance SELL OUTS – and a pair of new supporting acts have just been added to the bill.
Special guests on Evans’ WORLD TOUR will now include emerging Country artist Madison Kozak and GRAMMY award-winning songwriter Chris DeStefano on select dates. Kozak – an exciting new talent debuting with the heartwarming track, “First Last Name” – will appear on dates in the U.S. and Canada, and DeStefano – Evans’ longtime collaborator and co-producer, will appear on the run’s Australian dates.
"This tour feels like something I’ve been working toward forever and, at the same time, the start of something," said Evans. "I couldn’t be more stoked to sing these songs all over the world over the next few months! Some places we are visiting for the first time, and some places will feel like coming home but, no matter what, we’re gonna make a whole bunch of great memories together!”
Meanwhile, Evans will release a live, Bluegrass-tinged acoustic video for the track “Young Again” on Thursday (9/5) – but his passionate fanbase is getting an early look at the stripped-down clip. Fans who have signed up for the multi-talent’s email list have today received a sneak preview of the video, a full 48 hours before the rest of the world. “Young Again” appears on Evans’ critically-lauded Warner Music Nashville debut album, THINGS THAT WE DRINK TO, which arrived in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Country Albums chart in 2018 and also included the GOLD-certified #1 smash, “Kiss Somebody.”
Evans has been wowing massive crowds on the road all summer with Rascal Flatts’ SUMMER PLAYLIST TOUR (with four dates in September still on the itinerary), as his profile continues to rise everywhere he goes. From chart-topping success and media attention in the U.S. to countless awards and a recent PLATINUM certification for “Kiss Somebody” in Australia, it won’t be long before the whole world calls Evans a Country music superstar.

While continuing to build an arsenal of impactful, honest songs with esteemed songwriters such as Lori McKenna, James Slater and Craig Wiseman, Kozak has taken the stage at high-profile fairs and festivals, and will join Morgan Evans' WORLD TOUR this fall as a special guest for the U.S. and Canada dates. Checking off her bucket list, Kozak is set to make her Grand Ole Opry debut on October 25.
