Sugarland Visit London and Dublin to Promote ‘The Incredible Machine’
Sugarland will spend the next couple of weeks visiting Dublin, Ireland and London, England to promote the overseas release of their most recent record, 'The Incredible Machine.' The album, originally scheduled for a Feb. 7 release in both countries, was released three days early in Ireland to take advantage of the visit.
The duo, Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush, took to the internet to tell fans all about their first day in London. While checking out Royal Albert Hall, Harrod's department store, Big Ben and the Tower of London, they wrote: "there is much jockeying for position during taxi and van rides through the curving, narrow streets of that spectacular city, so as to not end up facing backwards in the car."
No proper concerts are scheduled for this promotional trip, with the band instead appearing on local TV shows, as well as taping an acoustic performance for the online 'XSessions' series. They are also slated to appear on the Friday, Feb. 11 episode of the BBC's popular 'Graham Norton Show.'
After some time in London, Sugarland headed to Dublin, where windy conditions apparently made for a hairy landing and some fashion concerns for the band. Nettles reported, "water is blowing horizontally out of fountains, and Kristian's a little worried about keeping his hat on in the gusts." Luckily, the promise of a pint of Guinness at a true Irish pub made their wild flight worth their time.
To keep in touch with Sugarland while they are overseas, head to the band's official site. You can also check out their first video report from the trip, focusing on the duo's newfound love of tea.
