Eclectic bluegrass outfit Punch Brothers, who are hard at work on the follow-up to 2015’s The Phosphorescent Blues, have announced the Big Time Summer Tour.

The North American jaunt, which kicks off on June 24 at Telluride Bluegrass Festival, will make its way throughout the country, stopping in New York City (July 28), Royal Oak, Mich.(Aug. 10), and Los Angeles (Aug. 24), before winding down at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colo. on Sept. 17 for a show with Gillian Welch. Special guest Madison Cunningham will join Punch Brothers on the road as opening act. Along the way, the band will even perform a few shows with Andrew Bird.  

For the first time ever, the band is offering fans the chance to get their hands on an exclusive Punch Brothers’ Big Time Friend Package. Each VIP package will include premium tickets, access to a pre-show performance and Q&A, two bags of the band’s custom blended coffee courtesy o Madcap Coffee, a signed tour poster, limited edition tote bag and more.
