Rock quartet Spafford have announced a new batch of upcoming concert dates throughout the fall months, continuing their 2018 tour campaign with 20 shows now set to begin in early October and running well into November. The popular jam band from Arizona will play for more fans across the U.S. beginning on Oct. 5 with two nights at Chicago’s House of Blues as part of The Big Weekend, followed by scheduled gigs in major markets including New York, Nashville, Dallas, the Denver/Boulder area and select cities throughout Arizona and southern California before closing out with two nights at San Francisco’s Great American Music Hall on Nov. 16-17.
Spafford will also touring North America throughout the summer months, having already performed at venues and events like Red Rocks Amphitheatre, Bonnaroo and Firefly Music Festivals so far this summer in promotion of their recently released studio album, 2018’s For Amusement Only. They’re also set to play a handful of shows throughout the rest of June and into July, including some opening for fellow jam band Umphrey’s McGee come August, before they head to Virginia to appear at Lockn’ Festival.
For the upcoming fall tour, Spafford will play three shows in New York City (Music Hall of Williamsburg and Rough Trade), two in Tucson and a Halloween party in Flagstaff, close to where Spafford formed in Prescott, Arizona almost a decade ago.
“We wanted to get to the north east for a long time, because it’s a really good group of music lovers,” the band said in a 2017 interview following their first big national tour. “That’s what we want, is people who love music. We were just so openly received there, it was amazing. And it was nice to go back, we did our first run there with Umphrey’s, did some of our own dates, and then to come back into that territory and do our own thing, it was a very rewarding experience.”
Tickets for select shows to see the band return to the northeast and beyond are on sale now, and can be purchased by clicking here.
