Country to Country Festival 2014: Day Two (Sunday, March 16) – Review

For a recap/review of C2C day one, click here.

The second full day of the 2014 Country to Country festival began in high spirits; having experienced the night before, when four huge acts graced the big stage and there was more than enough to entertain during the day, the prospect of another good 12 hours of country music was one everyone was looking forward to. Again the pop-up acts were brilliant with a special mention to Striking Matches, who like their appearance at the CMA Songwriter Series impressed everything who heard them, and they must have had several hundred people gathered round for most of their set. Sadly they’d been put halfway round the O2, so there was hardly any space for other fans to get past to other sections of the building, although it did generally mean they’d just stop to listen anyway. There were even people who were sat all the way up the Cineworld staircase watching, and it was by far the biggest pop-up audience of the weekend.

The Band Perry ‘Chainsaw’ – Single Review

The-Band-Perry-CountryMusicRocks.net_

The Band Perry do angry very well, particularly if it’s from the point of view of a scorned lover. While their first album was sweeter, with gentler arrangements, ‘Pioneer’ sees the production of a lot of Paramore-lite sounds and mixes, and a lot of pissed off characters. ‘Better Dig Two’, the lead single, warned of her own death if her man so much as cheated on her. ‘DONE.’ yelled at a lover she wanted to be rid of, and other album tracks such as ‘Forever Mine Nevermind’ muse bitterly on the end of relationships. ‘Chainsaw’ does one better, however, and is more aggressive than all of the others put together, because well, she has a freakin’ chainsaw. Steer clear.

After what seemed like an eternity waiting for this concert, I got the feeling I was in for a treat. Here’s what happened.

The Band Perry Announce ‘We Are Pioneers World Tour’

THE BAND PERRY ANNOUNCE WE ARE PIONEERS WORLD TOUR

 SUPERSTAR SIBLING TRIO SET TO CONQUER THE GLOBE WITH FIRST WORLDWIDE HEADLINE ARENA TOUR

Off their electric performance of “DONE.” on the live broadcast at the Canadian Country Music Association (CCMA) Awards, The Band Perry announce the WE ARE PIONEERS WORLD TOUR. This marks their first worldwide headline arena tour in support of their heralded album, PIONEER. The WE ARE PIONEERS WORLD TOUR will make its way to Canada for the month of January, starting in British Columbia and ending in Ontario. The tour will feature support from Calgary-native Lindsay Ell and Easton Corbin. Last night in Edmonton, The Band Perry received plaques for the Platinum certification of their self-titled debut album, which marks the first group from Big Machine Label Group Canada to earn this status for a full length release. In Canada, the trio has garnered two #1 hits from PIONEER, including the Platinum-selling “Better Dig Two” and Gold single “DONE.”

“We live to play. In our minds everything we do – writing, recording, interviews, appearances – is the means to the live end. To fully and totally understand our band, you have to see us live. It’s the three of us in our element, our living room, our therapy session, our recess. We can’t wait to bring WE ARE PIONEERS to the world,” says Kimberly Perry.

Throughout the WE ARE PIONEERS WORLD TOUR, The Band Perry will debut an entirely new show, including a new set, sound, lights and even a few new tricks. On the run of European dates, various local acts will be in the support slot on the tour, and starting on January 9 Easton Corbin and Lindsay Ell will join The Band Perry on the North American dates for what is sure to be one of the most sought after tickets of the touring season. At the end of a Band Perry show, audiences walk out with smiles on their faces, knowing that the band left nothing to the imagination – the family trio pour every bit of themselves into their shows.   See a list of dates below, with more to be added in the coming weeks.

No strangers to life on the road, The Band Perry have been on tour approximately 850 of the last 915 days, captivating audiences not only in the United States, but also in Australia, Canada and Europe.  This summer alone, The Band Perry shattered attendance records at multiple arenas across North America and have played to over half a million people, no simple feat for a band on just its second album.

“Marching forward and making noise together. That’s what a Band Perry show is all about. There are these moments that we’ve built into the show when the three of us and our band are like an army or a marching band.  Us, our band, and the crowd – it’s like we’re a team, and we’re all in it together.  We are very fortunate that we get to walk on stage and do what we love to do – and it’s our fans that have given us that opportunity.  We sincerely appreciate each and every one of them, and we are looking forward to meeting new people across the world and making The Fans Perry a global community,” says Reid Perry.

“We believe pioneers are everywhere. Big and small, young and old, on North-American shores and abroad – we are coming to find you!” says Neil Perry.
