Emerging Americana-rock singer/guitarist Aaron Lee Tasjan has announced a new batch of tour dates scheduled for this spring, as the guitarist from Nashville continues to promote the 2018 release of his latest studio album, Karma For Cheap. Tasjan, who was a part of other established rock bands before launching his own solo career, will spend much of March and April balancing his own headlining performances with dates supporting other artists on their own tours. He’ll be down in Santa Rosa Beach, Florida this weekend to take part in the 30A Songwriters Festival on Friday and Saturday, and will get some time to rest before his 2019 tour schedule really takes off.
The stylish guitarist will join Cheap Trick for six shows as the support act for their own run across the northeast in late February and into early March. From there, Tasjan will head south to link up with Jason Isbell and his band for a one-off concert at The Fillmore in New Orleans on March 29. Tasjan’s own run of headlining shows will begin the following evening on March 30 in Birmingham and continues until April 18 with a final stop in Louisville, Kentucky. Tasjan’s run of shows throughout the month of April will take him across the eastern U.S. (and into Canada), with a few notable stops at New York City’s Rough Trade on April 9, and Boston’s Great Scott on April 10.
Tickets for Tasjan’s headlining shows go on sale this Friday, January 18. Fans can click here to purchase tickets to select shows on the spring tour. Fans can also click here to revisit AXS’ coverage of Tasjan’s headlining performance in New York City back in 2017.
ALT, as he’s also commonly referred, was one of the recent performers on NPR’s popular “Tiny Desk Concert” series. The pre-recorded performance was shared earlier this week and featured he and his band playing a trio of songs from Karma For Cheap, and looking awfully stylish in the process.
