Last week Sturgill Simpson announced the upcoming release of his third solo album A Sailor’s Guide to Earth for April 15th, and as is customary, a slew of new tour dates will accompany the release. Though there is only 15 dates in Texas, the Midwest, Tennessee and Kentucky to start, there’s a good bet more are coming. There’s also a very good bet all of these dates will sell out almost immediately as tickets go for sale, so potential concert goers best be on their toes.
Despite the continued rise in popularity in the Kentucky songwriter, this new tour will feature many of the same sized venues from previous trips. Ticket prices have been raised slightly to a range between $30.00 to $45.00 depending on venue and seat. All tickets will go on sale Friday, March 11th at either 10:00 a.m. or 12:00 p.m. local time. You can find specific times below with the dates.
“Well I approached the last record when it was finished, I kind of had this feeling that it might possibly destroy my career, and it did just the opposite,” Sturgill said in an interview with Zane Lowe last week. “So I figured if anything I had to sort of take the same fearlessness into the studio on this one as well. But really, there’s nothing intentional, it’s just a representation of where my heart and where my head were at the time when we went into the studio.”
A Sailor’s Guide to Earth was produced by Sturgill himself, and features nine tracks including a cover of Nirvana’s “In Bloom.”
