ICELANDIC ALT ROCK BAND KALEO SET TO OPEN FOR THE ROLLING STONES ON UPCOMING EUROPEAN TOUR DATES
“THE KALEO EXPRESS” HEADLINE TOUR UNDERWAY
“LAST CALL WITH CARSON DALY” APPEARANCE TAPED AT THE WILTERN – SET TO AIR SEPTEMBER 13TH
Elektra/Atlantic recording artists Kaleo today announced they will serve as direct support for The Rolling Stones across three upcoming European dates. Performances in Hamburg and Munich, Germany (September 9th and 12th) will precede a previously announced opening set at “Next To The Red Bull Ring” in Spielberg, Austria on September 16th.
Kaleo’s support of the iconic group comes in the midst of Kaleo’s own headline tour – “The Kaleo Express” – which kicked off August 25th at Anaheim’s House of Blues.
On August 26th, the band’s performance at Los Angeles’ The Wiltern Theatre was captured for an upcoming episode of “Last Call With Carson Daly,” set to air September 13th. “Last Call” comes in a series of late night and morning show visits for the band, including “Jimmy Kimmel Live!,” “Late Night with Seth Meyers,” “Conan,” “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” and most recently,“Good Morning America.”
As “The Kaleo Express” tour continues, the band will perform in other major cities coast-to-coast, with two nights at Denver’s The Paramount Theater (one of which has already sold out), Austin’s The Moody Theater, and iconic New York City venue The Hammerstein Ballroom. Singer/songwriter ZZ Ward, Wilder and The Shelters will support on select North American dates and Judah & The Lion will support on select international show dates.
The fall tour comes on the heels of the band’s performances at the biggest festivals of the summer – including Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, and Coachella – as well as performing at European festivals such as Denmark’s Tinderbox.
Kaleo’s “A/B” (certified Gold in Russia and Canada) includes the multi-format rock singles, “All The Pretty Girls,” “No Good,” and the #1 alternative breakthrough hit “Way Down We Go.” “Way Down We Go” marked the band’s fourth top 10 hit at three different radio formats in the US. “Way Down We Go” has been certified Gold in the US, United Kingdom, Belgium, Ireland, Germany and South Africa, Platinum in Russia and Australia, and Double Platinum in Canada – where it reached #3 on the Alternative radio chart. “All The Pretty Girls” and “No Good” have both been certified Gold in Canada.

WHAT PRESS IS SAYING ABOUT KALEO:
“The Icelandic foursome begin with a Bon Iver-y hush, then bloom into holy fervor.”
– Entertainment Weekly
“The band’s dark, spooky ballad ‘Way Down We Go’ is the perfect showcase of Julius Son’s otherworldly vocals.”
– Rolling Stone
“Kaleo is a mix of Southern influences, from soft and sweet folk songs to blues rock and jagged ’70’s guitar anthems.”
– The Associated Press
“[A/B] stands as a perfect example of Kaleo having universality in good songwriting that works across countries.”
– Noisey / Vice
“…falsetto-fueled balladry meets Icelandic grandiosity.”
“Kaleo hail from Mosfellsbaer, Iceland, but you wouldn’t know it by frontman JJ Julius Son’s fine-tuned biker-soul growl or the overheated garage blues on the band’s major-label debut.”
– Rolling Stone
