Later this month, the Grammy-award winning singer-songwriter Maren Morris will be touring the UK to celebrate the release of her latest album GIRL. GIRL was released in March of this year and reached the number one spot on Billboard’s Top Country Albums chart. It also saw Maren Morris collaborate with songwriters such as Greg Kurstin (Kelly Clarkson, Pink) and Sarah Aarons (Camila Cabello, Khalid). Itching to hit the road, we caught up with her to see what fans can expect from her first UK performance since 2017…
1. What can the audience expect from the upcoming UK tour
We’re so thrilled to get back over there it’s probably been a year and a half since we’ve done a whole UK tour. So I’m excited to come back and hit those cities again and we’re actually ending the entire leg of the tour in London so it’s going to be a really special couple of weeks.
2. The Royal Albert Hall is a very special venue, has it always been on your tick list to perform there?
Yeah I mean the Royal Albert Hall is just a historic venue – I’ve never actually been there I’ve just seen so many videos of concerts there and it’s such a bucket list venue for me. To end the tour in one of THE most beautiful venues is definitely a dream come true and I think it’s going to be a really emotional one as it’s the last show. I’m just excited to share that experience with the UK fans.
3. What has been your highlight so far? Is there a particular show or song that you’ve enjoyed performing?
We started the tour the day after my album came out so I think my favourite part of the tour has been seeing how the album has become more familiar with the fans who have had more time to listen to it now, seeing which songs are becoming the fan favourites in the show. So for me as the writer and the artist it’s fun for me to watch each crowd and see which songs are really resonating each week that goes by. Every single crowd has been wonderful and just so excited, the energy is just so positive. It’s like everyone is having this kind of spiritual experience together and no show has been the same for us, so it’s been really refreshing.
4. Have you got a message for the UK fans?
I love you guys so much and I wish I could be there all year round. Each time we come back to the UK, the crowds get bigger and bigger and the rooms get louder and louder. It’s super heart-warming and validating for me as an American to bring my version of Country Music and song writing to the UK and have it be so accepted. I think at each show we are going to have an amazing time and to end the tour with you guys in London at the Royal Albert Hall is going to be very emotional!
Don’t miss Maren, on tour later this month!
