News: Big Time Rush To Tour The UK This Summer @bigtimerush

Big Time Rush will be bringing their highly anticipated tour to the UK and Europe this summer, with shows in Manchester, Birmingham, and London. The final UK show, at London’s Eventim Apollo, is now officially sold out with the Manchester (O2 Apollo) and Birmingham (O2 Academy) dates both well on their way to selling out too. More information on tickets can be found here.

Global pop group Big Time Rush is comprised of Kendall Schmidt, Logan Henderson, James Maslow, and Carlos PenaVega. The band solidified their return to music with the release of Another Life (via BMG), their first album in ten years, in June 2023 – listen here. Before their comeback, the band had spent almost eight years apart, each taking the time to nurture their own artistic endeavours. The growth experienced by both the band and their fans in those eight years is reflected in their new daring sound, as Big Time Rush share parts of themselves through their music like never before.

Another Life features nostalgic powerhouse track ‘Waves’synthpop bop Can’t Get Enough’, and Ask You Tonight, which pays homage to the boy bands they grew up on. On tour, fans can expect to hear highlights from Another Life, plus Big Time Rush classics from the band’s first three albums BTR, Elevate, and 24/Seven.

Big Time Rush became an overnight sensation in November 2009 when the scripted TV show of the same name launched on Nickelodeon. The show focused on the Hollywood adventures of four hockey players from Minnesota after they were selected to form a boy band. The show became a huge success and later, Carlos, Kendall, James, and Logan came to life as a band off the screen releasing three full length albums and performing across the globe. As the show concluded in July 2013 and after four years of recording music and touring as a band, they went their separate ways but remained close friends through the years. 
 
After 7 years, to bring joy to their fans during quarantine around the world, the members of Big Time Rush decided to appear together as a group to send a message of love and togetherness. This was followed by a socially distanced acoustic performance of their smash hit, ‘Worldwide’. These appearances resulted in hysteria amongst their fans and in the media, with BTR receiving 10+ million streams in 2020 alone. Four seasons of the TV show were added to Netflix in March 2021 and have appeared in the Netflix “Top 10” trending titles. 
 
The band finished off 2021 with a performance at iHeartRadio Jingle Ball in Philadelphia as well as two sold out shows in Chicago and NYC, capping it off with the release of their first single in eight years, ‘Call It Like I See It’ 

The group kicked off 2022 with the launch of their wildly successful, sold-out Forever Tour, as well as all new music, including hit singles ‘Honey’, ‘Fall’, and ‘Not Giving You Up’. The Forever Tour sold over 300,000 tickets across North America with numerous sell outs including sold-out shows in Chicago, at New York City’s legendary Madison Square Garden and on all dates on their Mexico Tour and concluded in early 2023 in South America.  

The 2023 release of fourth studio album Another Life represents the growth the band have experienced in their time apart, both personally and professionally. Big Time Rush celebrated their return to music with their fans on their mammoth Can’t Get Enough Tour of North and South America. They will bring their incredible live show to the UK and Europe this summer.
