Two-time GRAMMY nominated artist, The Lumineers, announced last night during their performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! that they will be embarking on their first-ever North American arena tour in 2017. This news comes just days after the act performed at the esteemed Americana Music Awards, and on the coattails of a current sold-out North American leg of the Cleopatra World Tour. The Cleopatra World Tour will be produced and promoted by AEG Live & Messina Touring Group (MTG) and includes a stop at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis on Friday, March 10, 2017.
The Cleopatra World has extended dates into 2017 and will be hitting major North American arenas beginning in January. Tickets for The Lumineers’ performance at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis will go on sale at a date to be determined in the near future.

The Lumineers will also perform at the White House October 3 as part of President Obama’s SXSLawn festival. The Lumineers are touring to support their sophomore effort, Cleopatra, which has garnered critical acclaim and whose singles so far have raced up the Triple A and Alternative Charts.
Cleopatra, the band’s second single from their new album, has already gone top 5 at the Triple A format following in the footsteps of hit single Ophelia. Ophelia has also since debuted on the Hot AC chart, following its record 13 week No. 1 run at Triple A (2nd most played single ever at the format) and four weeks No. 1 at Alternative. It was the band’s third single at Alternative to go No. 1. To date, Ophelia is also the most played song in 2016 at the Triple A and Alternative formats.
Cleopatra is the first No. 1 Billboard charting album from an indie label this year (Dualtone, an Entertainment One Company), and is a major hit overseas with the album ringing up No. 1 sales in the UK, Canada, and South Africa to go along with the US top rank.
