Set to go out to the world live from his hometown of Sydney, Australia the 45 minute set will be performed live and streamed out globally from an undisclosed location. The set will include hits such as the 7 x Platinum ‘Waves’ and 10 x Platinum ‘Be Alright’, and the accredited Gold fan favourite ‘Half A Man’ and of course the new single ‘Falling Up’ all performed for the first time in a stripped back arrangement with his band.
Having performed over 200 live shows across the USA, U.K, Europe, New Zealand and Australia in 2019 to support his #1 ARIA Album A Place We Knew, Live & Unplugged will be a whole new experience for Dean and his fans. It’s been over a year since he set foot on the live stage and is excited to be able to perform one big virtual show for fans all around the world.
Falling Up’ is the first taste of his highly anticipated second album. “Those lyrics are about being online and focusing on that one negative comment in a sea of good,” Lewis explains. Emotive, impactful, relatable and impossible to forget, it’s a masterclass in what the songwriter does best: connect.
The song has received incredible support globally and in less than 3 weeks, ‘Falling Up’ has been streamed over 5.5+ million times, hit #7 on Shazam in Australia and continues to climb TMN Hot 100 Radio Chart (TW #25). The official video which was shot in an empty Palms casino in Las Vegas last year is nearing 1 Million views having been released for just two weeks!
The three-time ARIA and APRA award winning Lewis went from unknown to world-wide recognition with the release of A Place We Knew. Accredited Platinum in Australia, the LP produced a number of local and international hits, most notably ‘Be Alright’ which was voted as #6 on triple j’s Hottest 100 and the 4th highest selling single (2nd Australian Artist) in Australia for 2018. Globally, ‘Be Alright’ is triple platinum in the USA and accredited Platinum+ in 23 other countries. In total, Dean’s music has now accumulated over 5+ billion streams globally.
A Place We Knew is Certified GOLD in the USA, Silver in the UK and platinum+ in 8 other countries, and earned Dean the 2019 ARIA Album of the Year and Best Male Artist Awards, as well as the 2019 APRA Awards for Breakthrough Songwriter of the Year and Outstanding International Achievement Award.
