It wraps up at the State Theater in Minneapolis on November 22.
On Labor Day weekend, Barns Courtney willmake his Bumbershoot debut, which has particular significance for the U.K. based artist since he spent a portion of his childhood in Seattle. Upcoming headline dates include a September 8 show at the legendary Troubadour in West Hollywood, CA. Throughout October, Barns Courtney will support Tom Odell on his North American tour, which includes an evening at New York City’s Webster Hall (October 5). See below for itinerary.

The song became a Top 5 hit at Triple A radio in just six weeks and went to #2 on the chart. It’s been a standout success at SiriusXM’s Spectrum channel, with over 1,200 spins. “Fire”has been heard in the Weinstein Company films The Founder and Burnt and has also been licensed by Showtime, Starz, multiple ESPN, shows, the MLB network and the Esquire network. The official video for “Fire” can be seen now on VEVO. View Barns Courtney performing “Fire” on “CONAN” HERE

Paste Magazine recently hailed Barns Courtney as “The Best of What’s Next” and noted, “There’s confidence. And then there’s the swaggering self-assurance displayed by raspy-throated British blues rocker Barns Courtney on his recent single ‘Fire,’ a swampy, Gospel-steeped stomper.” “Courtney has that something that you just don’t get to hear enough of anymore,” said Baeble Music, which highlighted the track “Hands” as one of its “Songs We Loved This Week.” “Hands” can be purchased on iTunes and heard on Spotify. The official “Hands” video – lensed by Youth Hymns, the team that directed the “Fire” clip – can be seen HERE.
Born in Ipswich, England, Barns Courtneysigned a recording contract straight out of high school, but when that deal fell apart, he went through several years of struggle. In 2015, the young artist went from sleeping in a car to scoring a U.K. viral hit with the single “Glitter and Gold,” which went to #1 on the Spotify UK Viral Chart. Barns Courtney has opened for The Who at London’s Wembley Stadium and has also supported Ed Sheeran, Elle King, Blur and The Libertines.
