Following the release of their sophomore album Cartwheels last year and heavy touring, including a rousing Glastonbury Festival set, 22 year old twins Catherine and Lizzy of Ward Thomas are set to have another incredible year.
They’ve just been announced as the official opening act for the prestigious C2C Festival at London’s The O2 on March 10th, go on to kick off a 22-date UK tour on April 28th and have a summer of key festival dates. Ward Thomas will also be making their first visit to Australia in March to play the prestigious CMC Rocks festival alongside huge-hitter Dixie Chicks and Little Big Town among others.
Already, they’ve sold an incredible 16,000 tickets for their spring tour with a number of shows already sold out while their acclaimed album Cartwheels has sold over 75,000 copies since entering the UK charts at number 1 last September.
Major UK festival appearances include Latitude, Isle of Wight, Cornbury and Harvest with more to be announced soon.
