Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real are already making post-C2C: Country to Country 2018 plans by announcing a show at The Garage on Tuesday 10th July.
Tickets for the show will go on sale on Thursday (8th March) at http://po.st/LukasNelsonTix. With the buzz building around them, you’d best get in quick if you want to snag tickets.
This weekend Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real will perform on the Spotlight Stage inside The O2 Arena on Saturday and that night they will be wowing fans at the official C2C Aftershow Party.
Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real formed 10 years ago, led by 28-year-old Lukas Nelson, who is the son of legendary Country music performer Willie Nelson. Two years ago Promise of the Real were selected by Neil Young to be his touring and studio band, with Young going on to be their mentor.
Talking about their rise to prominence Nelson says, “What’s happened with us feels similar to the career trajectory of The Band,” he continues. “They were already a great band when they started working with Dylan, who lifted them up, which is similar to what Neil’s done for us. He’s also given people a chance to hear what we’re doing and what our own songs have to offer. Then we played the Desert Trip with Neil, along with Paul McCartney, the Stones, the Who and Dylan. That was incredible.”
Nelson has also been writing with Lady Gaga for her remake of A Star is Born, after capturing director and star Bradley Cooper’s attention.
“At first I was just helping him out, and then I started writing with Stefani (Lady Gaga), who’s in the movie. We connected and she and I became really close. I got very involved in this film and ended up bringing the band into it as well.”
