THE BUCKLEYS ON TRACK TO REACH AN AUDIENCE OF OVER 1 MILLION FROM THEIR FIRST WORLD VIRTUAL TOUR
Australian band The Buckleys will close off their World Virtual Tour presented by Live Nation on Thursday 30 April with the goal to reach an audience of over 1M from across the globe as they conclude their run with a performance for their home country Australia & New Zealand at 6pm AEST / 8pm NZST.
Sarah, Lachlan and Molly Buckley are encouraging the Australian media and their fans to rally behind them and tune in for their final show on Thursday night.
“Please help us hit a million for our very first global virtual tour! We really hope our home country gets behind us,” Says, Sarah Buckley.
The Buckleys are a three-piece band of siblings (Sarah 20, Lachlan 18 and Molly 17 years 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” in March and their first international tour was due to kick off in April but global lockdown has seen them get creative.
The Buckleys World Virtual Tour came to fruition after lifelong friends CM Murphy and Arthur Fogel, along with Linda Kury and Devon Buchanan commenced urgent discussions on how to tour The Buckleys whilst the world was on lockdown. Mr Fogel’s right hand person, Tiffany Hilliard came up with the concept to tour the world virtually by countries and regions.
Last month, the band embarked on their first-ever virtual tour of North America, and by the end of the run, they will have played 18 shows across Europe, Asia, South America, New Zealand, and Australia – all from the comfort of their living room.
“I don’t think Australians have actually caught on to the fact that their own artist has been out there making music streaming records. Personally, I am stunned by the results so far. If the Australian people and our New Zealand cousins catch a seriously great live show, we will break a million engagements on their first World Virtual Tour. I am so proud of The Buckleys family, they carry the same mandate my showbiz mother and father gave me, the show must go on!” Says CM Murphy, Petrol Records Founder & Chairman.

ABOUT THE BUCKLEYS
The single “Money” (Petrol Records/Universal Music Australia/UMe) is The Buckleys first worldwide release and embodies the band’s brand of “Hippie Country” – a genre representing the infectious personality and spirited conscience that the band maintains through these tough times.
Since signing with CM Murphy’s Petrol Records in 2019, the band has released two singles in Australia. The first “Daydream” catapulted the trio into the limelight, scoring a #1 single at Australian country radio and saw The Buckleys score their first Golden Guitar nomination in the ‘Best New Talent’ category. Followed by second single, “I’m Comin’ For Ya (Love),” which reached #3.
The trio of siblings have been making music together for as long as they can remember, taking over stages around the world including esteemed festivals like Music City Roots in Nashville, CMA Fest, and Byron Bay Blues Festival.
