Aussie music sensations Sheppard are set to ignite the stage at Warner Bros Movie World on Queensland’s Gold Coast during the upcoming school holidays. This announcement comes hand in hand with their upcoming move to the United States, marking a new chapter in their already remarkable journey. The band is also celebrating the success of their current hit single, Daylight.
From September 15 to October 2*, Sheppard will grace the stage as part of the iconic theme park’s ‘Music on Main’ series. Fans can expect the band’s signature high-energy hits, including chart-toppers Geronimo and Coming Home. Not only will Sheppard take the stage to entertain audiences during the daily Star Parade on Main Street, but they will also light up the stage with their electric performances. Thousands are expected to flock through the turnstiles during the September school holidays, making each day a memorable one.
Emma Sheppard, the youngest sibling and bass player, expressed her excitement: “The stage feels like our second home, and being part of the excitement and magic at Warner Bros Movie World is an incredible opportunity. Playing our favorite songs in the Queensland sunshine and spreading positive vibes is something we can’t wait to do!”
This Warner Bros Movie World engagement will be one of the final chances to catch Sheppard before the band’s members—Amy, Emma, and George—along with their partners, make the big move from Brisbane to Nashville in early October. This move will open a thrilling new chapter for the successful Australian siblings, as the United States continues to be their prime market. With a long-term immersion in the heart of the world’s creative music scene, Sheppard anticipates even greater opportunities to create, perform, and share their extensive catalog of hits with broader American audiences.
Amy Sheppard shared her thoughts about the forthcoming move: “As proud Australians, representing our music in Nashville and connecting with fans there, as well as having easier access to Los Angeles and New York, not to mention Europe, is incredibly exciting. Although it’s a risk, we feel that our music and brand have evolved enough to make this commitment. We’ll be traveling back and forth, ensuring our Australian fans still get to see us!”
Their latest single, the bold dance-pop track Daylight, has garnered widespread acclaim. The song’s infectious energy has propelled it up the radio airplay charts worldwide, and it has secured spots on numerous editorial playlists. George Sheppard, the front man, described Daylight as “a shot of caffeine for your ears,” perfect for lifting spirits on gloomy days. “You can almost feel the confetti when the chorus hits,” he added. The accompanying music video, featuring a baby alien, adds an otherworldly touch to the experience.
In another remarkable achievement, Sheppard’s 2014 global hit Geronimo recently surpassed a remarkable HALF BILLION streams on Spotify alone. This, along with their impressive catalog that includes hits like Coming Home, Let Me Down Easy, Learning to Fly, Eurovision entry On My Way, and Die Young, has brought their total combined streams to a staggering two billion.
Get ready to catch Sheppard live at Warner Bros Movie World from September 15 to October 2 (*excluding September 23). This promises to be an unforgettable experience as the band lights up the stage before embarking on their exciting journey across the seas.
