They're over for The Long Road, and are playing 3 additional gigs while they're here!
Grammy-nominated, multi-platinum Country duo THOMPSON SQUARE are opening a brand new international chapter of their career this fall. The hit-making team of Keifer and Shawna Thompson will embark on their first-ever overseas tour in September.
Booked to hit five countries in Europe and the United Kingdom over 10 days, the whirlwind trip will kick off in Amsterdam on September 2nd and visit Germany, Ireland, Scotland and The Long Road festival before wrapping with a show in London, England, on September 12th.
It marks not only the chart-topping duo’s first time performing for fans across the pond, but also their debut tour outside the United States. With international interest in Country music at an all-time high, they can’t wait to showcase their hooky, heartfelt songwriting and unmistakable vocal blend that has made them stars at home since 2010.
"Today is the realisation of something that has been a long time coming," says the duo's Keifer Thompson. "We are so excited to announce tour dates that will take us all over this big world and can't wait to finally meet so many of our fans. We'll see you all soon!"

In addition to planning their international tour, Thompson Square has been busy celebrating one big news story after another.
The duo just signed a worldwide recording deal with Reviver Entertainment, as reported by The Tennesseean and MusicRow. Under the new agreement, Reviver will release Thompson Square’s third album, MASTERPIECE, which Sounds Like Nashville hails as “a work of art in itself” and finds One Country heralding the duo’s “triumphant return.”
Featuring family themes and their signature romantic connection – plus a boundary-pushing mix of Country, Rock, R&B and more – the project includes the heartwarming “Masterpiece” title track, which Keifer wrote about his crowning achievement – his family.
Meanwhile, a deeply-personal music video for the song was released in early March, offering a peek into the duo’s home life through videos from Keifer’s childhood, footage from the couple’s wedding day and clips of their three-year-old son, Cooper, intertwined with an intimate live performance of the track. Watch the video for “Masterpiece” here.
