Up & Coming Brits Rixton Plot North American Tour
Following their appearance on several network TV shows (including The TODAY show, Ellen and The Voice), UK pop rockers Rixton have just announced that they’ll be touring this side of the Atlantic this summer. The guys will kick things off at the Paradise Rock Club in Boston on June 30 and then play their way down the East Coast, with shows in New York, Philadelphia, and Washington D.C. The band will then fly to Toronto to play The Mod Club on August 7; from there, they’ll make their way into the Midwest hitting Minneapolis, Saint Louis, and Denver. They guys will land in Vancouver on August 18 and then go on to shows at The Crocodile in Seattle on August 19 and Slim’s in San Francisco on August 21. They’ll finish up at the El Rey Theatre in Los Angeles on August 23.
Initially gaining web-fame through videos of themselves performing covers uploading to YouTube, Rixton have found themselves on plenty of “artists to watch” lists this year. Their debut EP, Me and My Broken Heart (which was released in March), has sold over 500,000 downloads. The record’s titular single is currently the “Most Shazam-ed” new song in country and the official video has racked up over 6 million views on YouTube.
