sturgill-simpson-living-the-dream-tour

Fresh off of his sold-out theater tour this late winter and spring, and a host of festival appearances at Coachella, Stagecoach, Bonnaroo, and others, insurgent country artist Sturgill Simpson has just announced a slew of new tour dates as part of his “Living The Dream Tour.” Focusing on theater-sized venues, a few choice opening spots, some more summer festivals, and routing mostly through the eastern United States and over to Europe, Sturgill will be bringing his live show to local fans ahead of his highly-anticipated major label debut release through Atlantic Records. A second round of dates for the tour will be announced in mid July.

The tour includes a host of other festival appearances, as well as shows with Old Crown Medicine Show, The Avett Brothers, Merle Haggard, stops at Willie Nelson’s 4th of July Picnic and a Waylon Tribute in Austin July 6th, and a show at Colorado’s famed Red Rocks Amphitheater.

Opening many of the dates will be Nashville-based comedian Billy Wayne Davis, keeping in step with Sturgill’s last tour of not have a band as an opener.

The “Living The Dream” tour also includes make up dates for Charlottesville and Asheville that were cancelled as part of his last tour due to illness. Makeup dates for Raleigh and Richmond are said to be forthcoming.

Some dates are already sold out, like The Horseshoe Tavern in Toronto on June 23rd, and Metro in Chicago July 31st, so getting tickets sooner than later might be sage advice.
