Opening for at least some of the dates will be Lucky Tubb.

As always for Hank III, tour dates are NEVER confirmed until you see them on his website. For whatever reason, there always seems to be drama surrounding Hank III’s tour dates. For as many tour lineups and tour dates I’ve seen for him that have been correct, there have been just as many that are incorrect once the official tour is announced, so don’t believe venue websites or heavy metal gossip columns.

And having said that:

One of the biggest questions I get from people is: “Is Hank III ever going to tour Europe?”

My stock answer is always, “Well he hates flying,” which mainly comes from this promo video at 3:10 :

Hank III did play some in Europe before in the late 90′s, when Curb Records was making him jump through hoops, like playing in Branson, MO every night for a stint, but he hasn’t been back since. At the same time, it seems like every other underground/outlaw country band is going to Europe once or twice a year.

Well according to THIS WEBSITE under the “Programma” section, Hank III is playing there.

But what did I JUST say above ????

That’s right, it don’t mean JACK until it is listed on Hank III.com.

But I feel for all my Euro friends and readers out there. A Hank III European tour is way past due, and I think if it ever went down it would be a rousing success with the huge support Europe gives to American roots music.

I have my fingers crossed for you Europe!!!
