With their 40th anniversary on the horizon (2015), the legendary Bellamy Brothers are keeping the tour circuit red hot this year. In addition to their usual 150+ United States concert dates, the brothers have announced stops for their international tour of the globe. Throughout 2014, the Bellamys will tour in Sri Lanka, India, Brazil, Switzerland, Germany, Norway, Denmark, Australia and New Caledonia.
“We head over to Sri Lanka and India next week,” says David Bellamy. “We’ve toured in over 50 countries throughout our career but performing in these two regions is new territory for us.”
Howard Bellamy adds, “This is shaping up to be one of our biggest international years to date. Good thing we’re used to the jet lag. We actually have a new song we’re recording now called ‘Jet Lag Journey!'”
The Bellamys plan to release new music in conjunction with several of the international tour stops. Recording plans are already in the works for collaborations with Brazilian rock star Eduardo Araújo and Swiss rock sensation Gölä. The brothers’ first album with Gölä (BB&G: The Greatest Hits Sessions – released in 2010) debuted at #1 on the Swiss Music Chart and soon thereafter reached double-platinum sales.
In addition, the Bellamys are planning for a three-song EP and music video currently scheduled for a late May / early June release. The EP and video will serve as a teaser for the brothers’ 40th anniversary album which is set for a spring 2015 release. The two-disc set will feature 15 new songs and 15 #1 hits.
Throughout their nearly four decade career, the multi-platinum selling Bellamy Brothers have charted 15 #1 hits on the US country and pop music charts. Hits like “Let Your Love Flow,” “If I Said You Had A Beautiful Body (Would You Hold It Against Me),” “Redneck Girl,” and “Old Hippie” helped to make the brothers household names. Today, their seamless harmonies remain perfectly intact as they continue to travel the United States and European tour circuits, performing over 150 dates each year.
