Railroad Earth had better be getting plenty of rest this holiday season, because the band will be heading out on a lengthy 36-date North American tour following the start of the new year. Announced on Tuesday, the veteran Americana/jam band will start their winter-into-spring run at Aspen’s Belly Up on Jan. 2-4, before heading out across big sky country, the west and east costs and closing out with a few midwest dates before a final show at Old Settlers Music Festival in Tilman, Texas on April 22.
Notable stops on the upcoming tour include scheduled performances at San Francisco’s Warfield Theatre on Jan. 20, and The National in Richmond, Va. on Feb. 22. The band should be all ready to go by the time the tour kicks off on Jan. 2, as they’re also scheduled to ring in 2018 at Denver’s Paramount Theatre for New Year’s Eve a few nights prior.
Railroad Earth’s singer/guitarist Todd Sheaffer has spent much of the fall on the road, touring across the country as a solo act.
“Some of us have done solo work and some of us have collaborated with others on records. As an artist I find it invigorating to create with all kinds of people,” Sheaffer’s Railroad Earth bandmate Tim Carbone told AXS in an interview last January. “I never get tired of traveling. You find new things out about a city every time you go there.
