The Shires at Colston Hall on Wednesday 16 May 2018

Posted on: 14 May 2018

Country music sensation The Shires will play at Colston Hall in Bristol on Wednesday 16th May.


Groundbreaking country duo Ben Earle and Crissie Rhodes have been stunning the crowds with their special brand of country pop for a few years now (since 2013, in fact) but their distinctive blend of Nashville with a British twist has kept them at the top of the country music charts with a fervent fanbase championing them all the way.

The Shires

The Shire were the first British country band to reach the Top 10 in the Official UK Album Chart with their debut, Brave, while their second topped even that, going stratospheric and impressively becoming the fastest-selling UK country album in history.  


The home-grown, award-winning duo are sure to pack in fans and country music lovers alike when they play at Colston Hall, further cementing their reputation as true superstars of the genre and stoking the flames of the UK's continued, flourishing interest and enthusiasm for country music.  

The Shires

Support will be provided by Andy Brown and Sinead Burgess. Tickets prices range from £25.26 to £36.01 (incl. booking fee) and can be purchased here. 


Colston Hall is located at Colston Street, Bristol, BS1 5AR
