Lindsay Ell has spent much of the first four months of 2019 circumnavigating the globe during tour stops in the U.S., Germany, the Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand and Japan.
She’s not finished.
On May 5, Lindsay will travel across the pond to the U.K. for four shows in Manchester, Glasgow, Birmingham and London, before another appearance in the Netherlands. After that, it’s back to North America for more than 20 summer dates in the U.S. and Canada.
As Lindsay told NCD in April, her trip around the world was an “amazing, powerful, rewarding” experince and she “can’t wait to go back.”
“It was amazing,” says Lindsay. “You know, we’ve had the chance to see so many incredible countries, from Germany to [the Netherlands] to Australia to New Zealand to Japan, then back home. It was the epitome of culture shock. I mean, Tokyo is one of the coolest cities. It just has so much culture. You’re essentially in a city that doesn’t speak English, yet people are so kind and so friendly and they all want to help you out. Being able to bring country music to these places that don’t get a lot of country music was so powerful. Seeing how much they fell in love with it . . . like in Australia. When they see the artists that are coming, they listen to your records and they know all your songs by the time you get there. It was just so rewarding. I can’t wait to go back.”
