Australian sibling band - The Buckleys - set for its debut performance in India

After wrapping up the second leg of their first-ever world virtual tour achieving a ‘virtual reach’ of more than 4 million worldwide across the tour, Australian pop music and siblings band The Buckleys, have announced the date for their first-ever performance for Indian fans. 

The Buckleys’ performance will be available for viewing live on BookMyShow and its official Facebook handle. The band will mark its debut performance for India on May 29, 2020. at 8 PM IST.

Presented by Live Nation along with BookMyShow in India, The Buckleys’ show will be the second global virtual tour in the country after Willie Gomez’s ‘Mojados’ virtual world tour that concluded last week. Earlier this month, the rising hippy country superstars recreated the personalised “live” experience during a time of social distancing, by performing virtual tour dates across North and South Americas, Europe, the Middle East, Asia, Australia and New Zealand.

Talking about the same, The Buckleys said, “India has such a rich culture of music and art, we are excited that through technology we can connect with you from all the way here in Australia. Not to mention, one of our favourite bands, The Beatles, wrote much of ‘the white album’ in India... so we’ll most definitely have to play Beatles in this set for you Beatles fans like us! We can’t wait.”

The world virtual tour was developed in conjunction with the band’s record label, Petrol Records and US label, UMe. Performing individually curated shows for different regions, all streamed through Live Nation’s Live From Home platform and their partner affiliates across various participating countries including BookMyShow in India The Buckleys are one of the first bands to capture a global audience by performing a world virtual tour.

 The Buckleys are only the second signing to Petrol Records since CM Murphy signed award-winning siblings and band of brothers, INXS in 2009. Since their signing in 2019, the band has released two singles in Australia.  The success of the singles resulted in The Buckleys’ nomination for Qantas New Talent Of The Year award at the prestigious 2020 Country Music Awards Australian (Toyota Golden Guitar Awards) which recognize, celebrate and honour excellence and outstanding achievement in Australian country music. 

The Buckleys is a three-piece band of siblings - Sarah (20), Lachlan (18) and Molly (17 - who have worked since they were young children, towards their dream of a record deal, and the release of their first singles and tour. They’re now making that a reality, continuing to take the world by storm throughout 2020 and beyond. They have just released their second worldwide single, Breathe, via Petrol Records/Universal Music Australia/UMe.
