Rival Sons - Great Wester Valkryie

Rival Sons News



Rival Sons were forced to call a halt to their show in Norwich tonight, Tuesday 16th December, after singer Jay Buchanan, who had been feeling unwell all day, felt too ill to continue after the first two songs despite his best efforts.   Jay and the band are devastated that they couldn’t give the good people of Norwich their full show and will do their best to reschedule as soon as possible.

They have asked fans to keep their ticket stubbs which will be valid for the rescheduled show which they hope to announce by the end of this week. The band would like to thank fans for their continued support.

Guitarist Scott Holiday said “We couldn’t be more disappointed with the recent shows’ outcome. This is the first time we have ever had to do this..and we offer our extreme apologies to all that attended and scheduled for this cancelled show. Jay was at an extreme deficit ..just not well.. and was completely and wholly unable to continue- or he/we would have. All we can say to this point for sure is- we are already working on the reschedule date ..and promise to make it up to you, Norwich”

Norwich UEA was the last show of the current 30 date European tour, and the band today announced another 23 dates in Europe for March and April 2015.

Do You Have Your Tickets? Fall US & EU Tour Update

RivalSons_reminderHey all, how are ya? Are you back to school? Back to work? Well, we had a small summer break, about 3 weeks, from our rigorous Great Western Valkyrie tour schedule. We’ve all camped, surfed, spent time with our families and friends, and I believe our batteries are sufficiently recharged.

We enjoyed seeing you all this summer. We covered alot of miles – and I’m sure many of you were missed. I assure you we are doing everything we can to get to cities, states, countries and continents we haven’t been to yet. We appreciate your patience.

We enjoyed 4 weeks at number one on Canadian Rock radio with “Open My Eyes” earlier this summer. “OME” is still out in the US, and we’re getting more spins. Slowly but surely, we’re waking up America, thankfully and finally!

We’re back out next week, starting a west-coast to east-coast run. We’ll be doing everything from The Fillmore in San Francisco (bucket list: check!) to the Troubadour in Hollywood, all the way to Irving Plaza and Letterman in NYC (bucket list: check!). We have some big, big UK news about to be announced (hopefully, bucket list: check!) so stay tuned to our Twitter, Facebook and RivalSons.com for more!

Let’s not forget the Classic Rock Magazine Awards on November 4th! We’re honored to be up for Album of the Year, pretty surreal! Please help us out and VOTE HERE if you dig it. Then a few days later, we begin our long-awaited headlining tour of Europe, Scandanavia and the UK. We can’t wait!!

Thanks for staying tuned and staying active on our pages. Keep your eyes peeled for our mini documentary we’re releasing on YouTube called “Why Spotify is Good for the Artist” coming soon. Speaking of our friends at Spotify, we stopped to visit them in Stockholm and recorded acoustic versions of ‘Open My Eyes,’ ‘Electric Man’ and ‘Where I’ve Been’ – give them a listen HERE!

Keep on swinging!
