Two of the 21st century’s best singer-songwriters are teaming up for a co-headlining tour set for early summer 2019. Father John Misty, aka Josh Tillman, and Jason Isbell are an amazing and interesting duo. Both are astute observationalists. But while Isbell’s songs carry a certain realism, Tillman’s observations focus more on the absurd nature of human existence. It’s an extraordinary bill.
FJM is currently touring around his stellar 2018 album, God's Favorite Customer (listen above), while Isbell is hitting the road around the 400 Unit's Grammy-winning album The Nasville Sound. Listen to The Nasville Sound track "Last of My Kind" below.
FJM and Jason Isbell kick off their co-headlining tour in San Diego on June 6. UK singer-songwriter Jade Bird will act as support on the first leg of the tour with Nashville songsmith Erin Rae takes over later down the road. After the opener, the tour heads up the coast for a performance at the Santa Barbara Bowl on June 7. Following a few more West Coast dates--including a stop at Marymoor Park in Redmond, Washington on June 11--the tour heads east.
After a run through the Midwest, FJM and Isbell hit the East Coast, including an appearance by both artists at the BRIC Celebrate Brooklyn! Festival at Prospect Park Bandshell on June 19. FJM and Jason Isbell then strike south for a slew of shows ahead of engagements in Texas. The tour wraps up in Tulsa, Oklahoma on June 29.
