The Band Perry: October 12th – November 14th, 2019
The Band Perry burst on the Country scene a few years ago with the song “Hip to My Heart,” and has been making great strides as a group since then. The group of siblings have released a number of songs in the years between then and now and have gained thousands of fans along the way. This new tour has been met with a lot of anticipation since it’s been quite a while since they’ve been out on the road. Even though it’s a shorter tour, it carries a lot of excitement with it. This tour will mostly hit up West Coast dates including stops in Los Angeles and Seattle, but there are a handful of East Coast shows, too. Tickets will go quick since there are so few stops, so make sure that you get tickets early if you’re a fan of The Band Perry.
Shovels and Rope: July 19th – November 6th, 2019
Shovels and Rope just announced a big new tour for the fall. And before they head out on their own, they will be playing a handful of dates with the Tedeschi Trucks Band. This is going to be an awesome act, regardless of who you see them playing with. Shovels and Rope just released their sixth album a couple of months ago and is still promoting that. This tour bears the same name as the new album, By Blood. If you’ve never seen Shovels and Rope before, this is your chance to do so. Their Americana feel will get you up and out of your seat while you enjoy yourself, and the jam band element of their music will ensure that each show is a little bit different. They have one of those acts that is much better than you would have ever anticipated if you’ve only heard them on the radio, so be sure to get your tickets early to guarantee yourself a spot at their next tour stop.
(Sandy) Alex G: August 1st – November 30th, 2019

It’s scheduled to come out this coming September and has been widely anticipated. His tour will hit up a lot of major cities in the U.S., including Los Angeles, San Francisco, Boston, and his home city of Philadelphia.
