Currently impressing and winning over massive audiences on One Direction’s sold-out UK-Ireland tour, Florida’s Boyce Avenue have announced their sixth national headline tour in June this year which will see the band play the legendary Isle of Wight Festival and their biggest European shows to date, including a show at the O2 Academy Birmingham.
Comprised of the three brothers, Alejandro, Fabian, and Daniel Manzano, Boyce Avenue is gaining worldwide recognition, through a vast and growing online fan base, for its pop-sensible blend of acoustic and rock music.
The band has logged half a billion views on YouTube and has over 1 million subscribers to its YouTube channel, making it the top-ranked band on the site, and one of the most viewed artists in the world.
Lead singer and guitarist Alejandro Manzano comments on the band’s return to the UK and Ireland by noting, “We are just so excited to be back in Europe, especially for our biggest tour yet. Our fans here have always been so awesome and supportive – we can’t wait to put on some really amazing shows for everyone.”
Guitarist Fabian Manzano adds, “As musicians, we are blessed to be able to do what we love for a living and have other people love it as well. To be able to do it for so many people is truly unbelievable.”
Daniel Manzano, the band’s bassist comments, “To think that we have grown so much since our first days just playing together at home to playing such famous international venues as these is a dream come true – we are incredibly thankful to everyone who has supported us on every tour along the way.”
Having recently received rave reviews when they visited the UK and Ireland to play a host of sold-out shows in November 2011, including sell-out nights at London’s O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire and Dublin’s Olympia Theatre, and a performance at the MTV European Music Awards in Belfast, 2012 is sure to be a big year for Boyce Avenue.
