CURRENTLY impressing and winning over audiences on One Direction’s sold-out UK/Ireland tour, Florida’s Boyce Avenue have announced their sixth UK/Ireland headline tour in June this year.

This will see the band play the legendary Isle of Wight Festival and their biggest European shows to date. 

Comprising three brothers - Alejandro, Fabian, and Daniel Manzano - Boyce Avenue is gaining worldwide recognition, through a vast and growing online fan base, for its pop-sensible blend of acoustic and rock music.

The band has logged half a billion views on YouTube and has over one million subscribers to its YouTube channel, making it the top-ranked band on the site, and one of the most viewed artists in the world.

Lead singer and guitarist Alejandro Manzano comments on the band’s return to the UK/Ireland by noting: "We are just so excited to be back in Europe, especially for our biggest tour yet.  Our fans here have always been so awesome and supportive – we can’t wait to put on some really amazing shows for everyone.”

Guitarist Fabian added: "As musicians, we are blessed to be able to do what we love for a living and have other people love it as well. To be able to do it for so many people is truly unbelievable.”

Daniel Manzano, the band's bassist comments, "To think that we have grown so much since our first days just playing together at home to playing such famous international venues as these is a dream come true."

You can see the band throughout June 2012 at Birmingham's O2 Academy on Saturday, June 16 (0844 477 2000), and Bristol's O2 Academy on Tuesday, June 19 (0844 477 2000).
