Australian singer Dean Lewis is finally coming to the United States and Canada in 2019! The "Be Alright" singer announced his first North American headlining tour via Twitter on Tuesday, and fans can get tickets to his first American concerts starting Dec. 6 here at AXS.
Lewis became an international sensation two years ago when he released his debut single "Waves." Not only did the song rack up 34 million views on YouTube, it was also certified four times Platinum in his native Australia, and was heard during a number of popular TV shows including The CW's cult hit "Riverdale," the critically acclaimed USA drama "Suits" and Freeform's fantasy drama "Shadowhunters: The Mortal Instruments." That massive exposure has turned him into a rising pop star, and his career is continuing to explode.
He released "Be Alright," which you can listen to by playing the video above, in June and scored his second quadruple Platinum hit in Australia. It was also his first single to chart in the United States; the song reached number 65 on the Billboard Hot 100. Having shown audiences how he can create engaging pop music that also has a bit of an emotional pull, he's setting out on a new tour in 2019 that will be the first chance U.S. and Canadian fans have to see him live.
Music fans who haven't discovered Dean Lewis yet don't want to miss out. Lewis has recorded some interesting pop songs, but he's a lot more than just another pop artist; as you can hear in "Be Alright," his songs are emotional, no-frills affairs like he's pouring his heart out to the listener.
He's one of the most down to earth pop artists in recent years, and if he can connect with his audience that well through singles, his live shows should be similarly captivating. AXS is ticketing several shows on the tour, including its opening and closing nights, so be there when Dean Lewis opens a new chapter in his career by winning over pop fans across America.
