MORGAN WALLEN HEADS TO BST HYDE PARK

Published:

American Express presents BST Hyde Park is excited to welcome chart-topping country sensation Morgan Wallen, headlining on Thursday 4 July. Today we’re thrilled to announce the first wave of incredible special guests, including Riley Green, Ernest and Ella Langley, with the full line-up still to come. Tickets for this unmissable show are on sale now, available at www.bst-hydepark.com

For his first ever UK performance, Riley Green is heading to the Great Oak Stage at BST Hyde Park! Riley Green has been compelling Country music fans to raise a drink, shed a tear, and, above all, celebrate where they are from, since first releasing his self-titled EP in 2018. His songs like the Platinum hit ‘There Was This Girl’, the 2x Platinum-certified heart-tugger ‘I Wish Grandpas Never Died’, and his chart-topping collab with Thomas Rhett, ‘Half of Me’, have made Riley synonymous with what Country music does best: making listeners feel something with his no-gimmick, relatable writing and classic feel. Hot off the heels of his latest EP released in April, Way Out Here, we can’t wait for Riley to bring his new music to this huge day of Country in Hyde Park.

Nashville’s most unpredictable hitmaker ERNEST is “The Charmer”, a triple threat talent and one of Music City’s on the rise artist/writers who is changing the status quo. The two-time ACM Award nominee (2024) crafts a twist-heavy verse style that’s become his signature, proving its mettle, and earning him multiple No. 1s to date. He just released his highly anticipated sophomore album, NASHVILLE, TENNESSEE, which follows up ERNEST’S critically acclaimed debut album FLOWER SHOPS (THE ALBUM).

Flexing show-stopping vocals and a razor-sharp pen, Alabama native Ella Langley spikes her unfiltered true stories with unapologetic rock ‘n’ roll grit and unassuming pop appeal. With the success of her debut EP Excuse The Mess, and with several high-profile songwriting cuts, Ella has been widely touted as an artist to watch. This year she will hit the road with both Morgan Wallen and Riley Green, and will soon unveil her highly anticipated debut album.

Morgan Wallen says, “Last fall was my first time in the UK and man, I loved it. I saw so much while I was there, and the people were incredible. To play where legendary artists like Pink Floyd and The Rolling Stones have played is a huge honor for me and my band, and we can’t wait to be back.”

One of today’s brightest stars in music, Morgan Wallen has been riding a non-stop wave of success with a string of 11 No. 1 hits and electrifying live shows with 2.4 million fans already holding tickets to his world tour. His latest single with Post Malone, ‘I Had Some Help’, was a major hit in the UK upon release, placing at No.2 in the Official Charts.

After releasing digital series Abbey Road Sessions recorded at the famous Abbey Road Studios – including five live recordings from One Thing At A Time, an unreleased fan-favourite, ‘Lies Lies Lies’, and a never-before-recorded cover of Nothing But Thieves’ ‘Graveyard Whistling’ – Morgan Wallen will return to London this July. Watch/listen to Abbey Road Sessions HERE.

Wallen’s rise to prominence has been nothing short of meteoric. Hailed by Billboard for making “his superstar arrival as a touring artist” in 2022, 11-time 2023 Billboard Music Awards-winner Morgan Wallen continues to reign as one of Country’s top touring artists. Spanning 5 countries and 3 continents, Wallen’s 57-show 2023 One Night At A Time World Tour was named a Pollstar and Billboard Country Tour of the Year and delivered the man the New York Times dubbed “one of the biggest stars in pop, period” to fans worldwide. Wallen will bring the show to BST Hyde Park for the first time this summer.

Wallen’s authentic storytelling and raw emotion struck a chord with fans, propelling him to the forefront of the country music scene. Last year saw him release his third studio album, One Thing At A Time, which reigned atop the all-genre Billboard 200 chart for 18 non-consecutive weeks, tying Garth Brooks’ Ropin’ the Wind with the most weeks at No. 1 for a Country album, and was the most-streamed album of the year on Spotify.

With over 28 billion on-demand streams, his hit songs and fan favourites, including ‘Whiskey Glasses’, ‘More Than My Hometown’, and ‘7 Summers’, have dominated airwaves and playlists. 6x-Platinum single ‘Last Night’ reeled in over 1.5 billion streams globally, becoming the most-streamed song of any genre in the U.S. across Apple Music and Spotify, and the longest running No. 1 solo song in Hot 100 history (16 weeks total).

The lineup for American Express presents BST Hyde Park 2024 is set to be truly spectacular, with Morgan Wallen joining previously announced headliners SZA (29 June), Kings of Leon (30 June), Andrea Bocelli (5 July), Robbie Williams (6 July), Shania Twain (7 July), Stevie Nicks (12 July), Kylie (13 July) and Stray Kids (14 July), with the full line up for each day to be announced.

This announcement follows the tremendous success of BST Hyde Park 2023, featuring legendary acts such as P!NK, Guns N’ Roses, Take That, BLACKPINK, Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band, Billy Joel, and Lana Del Rey.
