The announcement came in a creative way over the band's Twitter page the other night.
After a successful year of touring the UK and Ireland, playing to over 10,000 people, the Irish pop rock duo Picture This – one of the hottest bands in the UK and Ireland right now – are ready to take on 2017 with a slew of European dates. The band revealed the May/June tour via a video posted to Twitter yesterday.
It is a reflection of the band's soaring popularity that the video announcement has already been viewed over 125,000 times – and rising – within 24 hours.
Picture This played the Olympia Theatre, Dublin in November, and are set to perform at 3Arena on December 3 for the 2fm Xmas Ball, 2016, in aid of Childline. Kodaline, The Academic, All Tvvins, Brian Deady, and Aine Cahill will join them.
Check out the genius video here, that Jimmy Rainsford and Ryan Hennessey created to introduce the tour dates:
