Los Angeles superband LANY have announced they will be hitting the road with special guest Surfaces for their “Summer Forever Tour.” Produced by Live Nation, the 34-city tour will make stops across North America to include Michigan Lottery Amphitheatre on Friday, August 12 at 7 p.m.
Nominated for Pollstar’s 2021 “Best Pop Tour”, LANY’s global fan base continues to expand, with more than 3.5 billion in streaming, 750 million in video views and more than 500,000 in worldwide tickets sales, this latest announcement continues LANY’s forward momentum following their highly successful “gg bb xx” fall 2021 tour which included sold out Forum and Radio City dates and the release of their tremendously successful pop focused gg bb xx album in September 2021. This latest announcement also comes off the heels of Surfaces’ “Good 2 Be Back” summer 2021 tour which coincided with their Pacifico album released last June.
In June of 2021, LANY released gg bb xx, their fourth consecutive studio album. gg bb xx showcased a return to their infectious pop sound collaborating with an array of notable songwriters and producers including Andrew Goldstein (Maroon 5, Katy Perry, Lauv), John Ryan (Shawn Mendes, Charlie Puth, Harry Styles), David Hodges (Ed Sheeran, 5SOS, Blink 182), Tobias Jesso Jr. (Adele, Sia, HAIM), Dan Smyers of Dan + Shay and more. The albums lead track was the +5 million video views hit “dancing in the the kitchen”—which Uproxx says “showcases the group’s knack for penning relatable pop tunes, emphasizing the importance of enjoying life’s little moments over a joyous beat.” These new songs follow LANY’s first new music of 2021, “I Quit Drinking,” a duet with country superstar Kelsea Ballerini which debuted with a live performance at this year’s CMT Awards .
gg bb xx’s release immediately followed 2020’s critically acclaimed mama’s boy—which debuted at #7 on the Billboard 200 and #1 on the Alternative Albums sales chart with more than 300 million streams to date.
LANY’s breakthrough came with their 2017 self-titled debut, which built an international fanbase and led to sold out arenas across the world. The heartbreak anthems on their 2018 follow-up Malibu Nights cracked the Billboard Album Chart and connected in a huge way across the globe, with their 2019 collaboration with Lauv, “Mean It,” garnering further attention. Fronted by songwriter, lyricist and producer Paul Klein, LANY have a social media following of +9 million people, have sold more than 500,000 tickets worldwide and played sold-out shows from L.A.’s Greek Theatre to London’s Brixton Academy. Their songs have been streamed over three billion times with more than 750 million video views to date.
