The Lumineers To Stream Their Sold-Out Show In Cary, NC; All Proceeds To Benefit HRC and EqualityNC to Help Fight HB2 Legislation
Cary, NC–The Lumineers announced today that their show on Thursday, September 15th in Cary, North Carolina will be live-streamed for fans across the country. The stream can be viewed on Facebook via Live Nation TV’s page, Live Nation’s YouTube Channel and LiveNation.com starting at 8:55 pm EST. Earlier this summer, the band announced that 100% of proceeds from the show will go directly towards HRC and EqualityNC, to help fight the HB2 legislation.
From lead singer Wesley Schultz, “…there’s no perfect way to protest this issue – we believe music is a way to bring all sorts of people together, and through that, encourage open-mindedness, love and acceptance. As the Cleopatra World Tour makes its stop in NC during such a controversial time we think it is important to invest in the people and organizations that will make the state a better place.” In addition to their generous donations, the band is also providing gender-neutral bathrooms an option at this show.
This show marks a midway point in the ongoing, Cleopatra World tour, which is nearly completely sold out in such venues as Hollywood Bowl, Merriweather Post Pavilion and two nights at the Ascend Amphitheatre in Nashville. While in Nashville, the band is also set to perform on the Americana Music Awards on Wednesday, September 21st. (Full tour dates listed below)
The Lumineers have been touring in support of their recently released album Cleopatra. Second single ‘Cleopatra’ quickly went top 25 at AAA format following in the footsteps of hit single ‘Ophelia.’ ‘Ophelia’ has also since debuted on the Hot AC chart, following its record 13 week No. 1 run at AAA and four weeks No. 1 at Alternative. It was the band’s third single at Alternative to go No. 1.
Cleopatra is the first No. 1 Billboard charting album from an indie label this year (Dualtone, an Entertainment One Company), and is a major hit overseas with the album ringing up No. 1 sales in the UK, Canada, and South Africa to go along with the US top rank.
