The trio from Byron Bay, Australia, The Buckleys announce their first NORTH AMERICAN Virtual Tour, presented by Live Nation. In an effort to reach fans during a time of social distancing while still giving audiences a personalized experience, the band is launching an orchestrated livestreamed tour that will virtually reach various cities on different dates across North America starting on the West Coast this Saturday, April 4th.


The Buckleys will perform different sets for each of their four tour dates which will be available for live viewing on Live Nation’s newly launched Live From Home platform as well as hosted across Live Nation and House of Blues’ regional social media channels (see dates and links below). Viewing will also be available on the band’s YouTube channel post livestream.


The Buckleys are only the second signing to Petrol Records since CM Murphy signed award-winning siblings and band of brothers, INXS in 2009. A three-piece band of siblings (Sarah 20, Lachlan 18 and Molly 17 yrs of age), The Buckleys worked since they were young children towards their dream of a record deal, the release of their first album and tour and had scheduled the release of their single “Money” on March 13 and their first tour to kick off in April.
However, as COVID-19 progressed, the prospect of their tour became impossible. Petrol Records head, CM Murphy, adapted his longtime experience launching tours, albums, and films to The Buckleys Virtual Tour. With the help of their U.S. label, UMe, and Live Nation, and a bit of creativity and determination, The Buckleys “virtual tour” was born.


“Live Nation and UMe have been incredible partners and they know how important it is to give artists a chance to play and audiences a chance to discover, especially during this incredibly difficult time in the world where music remains a vital part in connecting people,” says CM Murphy, Petrol Records founder & Chairman.
