Veteran rock band Blackberry Smoke will head out on a 22-date North American tour this winter in support of their latest studio album, 2018’s Find a Light. The rural-rock band from Atlanta will embark on the first of their 2019 headlining tour dates beginning on Jan. 24 in Mississippi and will continue rocking out for fans until Feb. 22 with a final show at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium. The band will be joined throughout their tour by support acts including Nikki Lane, Foo Fighters' guitarist Chris Shiflett and Quaker City Night Hawks, according to their announcement via Rolling Stone shared on Tuesday.
Blackberry Smoke's newly announced 2019 tour schedule can be referenced below. The band will trek across the warmer U.S. cities in Texas and Arizona before playing eight shows up and down California and visiting some of the Pacific Northwest. The tour will continue in front of fans in the heartland of America with shows in Kansas, Oklahoma and finally Nashville. Notable stops on the tour include Los Angeles’ Fonda Theatre, San Francisco’s Regency Ballroom and Seattle’s Showbox. Blackberry Smoke is also scheduled to perform on the Southern Rock Cruise when the nautical-based music event hits the high seas aboard the Norwegian Cruise Line ship Pearl shortly after the start of the new year on January 6-12.
The band released Find a Light back on April 6 via 3 Legged Records. The 13-track, guitar-friendly LP features appearances by similar artists like The Wood Brothers and Robert Randolph on that magical pedal-steel of his. The band followed the studio project up with the release of The Southern Ground Sessions EP back in late October. The six-song EP features mostly acoustic versions of various track initially included on Find a Light. They've spent nearly all of 2018 touring and performing around the globe in support of their new projects, with support from Tyler Bryant & the Shakedown, Karl Denson's Tiny Universe and Junkyard.
Tickets for select shows on the 2019 winter trek will be going on sale starting Friday, Nov. 8, and can be purchased by clicking here.
