The Band Perry has announced their first worldwide headlining tour. The We Are Pioneers World Tour will kick off in Gothenburg, Sweden on November 8 at Tradgarn and crisscross Europe for five weeks before the trio brings their tour home to North America.

“We live to play,” Kimberly Perry said. “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.”

The band will debut an entirely new show on the tour, including a new set, sound, lights and a few new tricks. Various local acts will join the show as special guests on European dates. When the North American leg kicks off January 9, Easton Corbin and Lindsay Ell take over the opening slots.

“Marching forward and making noise together,” Reid Perry said. “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 believe pioneers are everywhere,” Neil Perry said. “Big and small, young and old, on North American shores and abroad – we are coming to find you!”

The band has been on tour approximately 850 of the last 915 days, not only in the United States but also in Australia, Canada and Europe. This summer, the band shattered attendance records at multiple arenas across the country and have played to more than half a million people. For tour dates and ticket information, visit
