Jackson Browne will be heading out on a short acoustic tour this January, with seven performances scheduled across Georgia and Florida, in addition to a multi-gig stop in Jamaica starting on Jan. 6. The tour kicks off in Augusta, Ga. before heading down to Florida for a few weeks and wrapping up on Jan. 24 in Sarasota.
The legendary rock singer, guitarist and songwriter won’t be alone when he heads down to the southern U.S. during heart of winter. Monday’s announcement also included that Browne will be joined throughout the month long trek by longtime bandmate and multi-instrumentalist Greg Leisz. Television fans may remember seeing the two on Cameron Crowe’s short-lived series Roadies, when Leisz and Browne were seen performing three songs in the last episode of the series.
The 68-year-old Browne hardly seems to be running on empty these days, as the veteran rocker toured across North America back in April in a continuing effort to promote his 2014 studio album, Standing in the Breach. Since coming out of the Los Angeles music scene at the start of his career in the mid-1960s, Browne has become one of the most sought-after songwriters in contemporary rock music, with some of the biggest names of that era using his music including Joan Baez, The Eagles, Linda Ronstadt and the Byrds to name a few. It wouldn’t be until a few years after the start of his career when he’d find success as a recording artist in his own right.
