Fresh from scoring the highest-charting album of their career, one of the most critically-acclaimed contemporary Southern rock acts have now extended their 2014 tour with the release of Drive-By Truckers tickets for a mixture of headlining, joint and festival shows.
The Georgia quintet, who reached number 16 on the Billboard 200 last month with their tenth studio effort, English Oceans, are currently in the midst of their spring trek, but have now announced a whole host of new dates which will keep them on the road until the middle of July.
Following a number of Patterson Hood solo shows and an opening set for Willie Nelson last week, the band will resume their own tour at Columbia’s The Blue Note tonight (April 17) before moving onto the likes of Los Angeles’ The Fonda Theatre on Apr 26 (get-in price $49/average price $108), San Antonio’s The Aztec Theatre on Apr 30 ($82/$90) and two shows at New Orleans’ The Civic Theatre on May 2 ($68/$76) and 3 ($48/$72).
After a seven-date European trek, the group will then return to their homeland for a further 23 shows including co-headlining dates with heartland rockers The Hold Steady at Asbury Park’s Stone Pony Summerstage on June 27 ($79/$179) and Huntington’s Paramount Theatre on Jun 28 ($62/$137) and Americana five-piece Deer Tick at the Hampton Beach Casino Ballroom on Jun 29 ($48/$196), and festival slots at Bonnaroo on Jun 14 ($632/$706, 3-day passes $300/$482), Ottawa Bluesfest on Jul 6 and Cincinnati’s Buckle Up Music Festival on Jul 19.
There are still hundreds of Drive-By Truckers tickets waiting to be snapped up our site with the Apr 23 gig at Seattle’s Showbox SoDo currently with the lowest get-in price at $40 (average price $72) and the band’s joint concert with Nashville singer-songwriter Justin Townes Earle at Denver’s Fillmore Auditorium on Apr 19 the cheapest average price at $56 (get-in price $52).
Fans with Drive-By Truckers tickets should expect to hear the majority of the group’s latest LP, while recent shows have also included early releases “Love Like This” and “Margo and Harold” and a cover version of Warren Zevon’s “Play It All Night Long.” While South Carolina folk duo Shovels & Rope, rockabilly revivalist JD McPherson, New Orleans troubadour Benjamin Booker and alt-country trio Water Liars will take turns as support act.
