Evans returns to Australia just a year on from his spectacular CMC Rocks QLD 2022 appearance, which saw the country-pop sensation headline the sold-out event alongside Kane Brown and Brad Paisley and join Paisley on his Australia and New Zealand tour. On that visit, Evans added a last-minute hometown Newcastle show which saw fans snap up all tickets within minutes!

The Nashville-via-Newcastle chart-topper last headlined shows around the country in 2019 as part of his world tour, hitting the road off the back of a hugely successful second studio album THINGS THAT WE DRINK TO. The album earnt Evans a spot on Billboard’s Country Artists to Watch list that year, with lead single ‘Day Drunk’ achieving 4x Platinum status in Australia and becoming a staple at commercial radio.

Following his breakout in 2018, Evans continued to soar, achieving 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.

With support back home and around the world, Morgan Evans continues to perform to sold out venues globally, with an extensive touring history that has seen him join the likes of Taylor Swift, Alan Jackson, Dan + Shay and more on their world tours. His dynamic live performance has been called “electric” by Off The Record and celebrated as “triumphant… with the perfect amount of energy and fun” by Entertainment Focus.

His latest EP, Life Upside Down (out now via Warner Music) is a project that hits home for Morgan, 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), which ultimately earnt him a spot on the line-up at this year’s C2C festival in London.
