ZZ Ward's summer tour includes Denver's Bluebird and LA's Roxy

ZZ Ward has announced her summer tour dates, and they include stops at the Bluebird Theater in Denver on June 3 and The Roxy in Los Angeles on June 9. Tickets for both concerts go on sale through AXS this week.

The singer-songwriter has released two new singles this year: "The Deep", featuring Joey Purp, and "Help Me Mama." You can listen to the latter now by using the media player included with this article. She's been working on the follow-up to her sassy 2012 debut album Til The Casket Drops, which is called The Storm and scheduled to be released on June 30 through Hollywood Records.

The summer tour will thus serve as a perfect promotional run-up to the record release, with the tour coming to an end just over a week before the album's arrival date. That means audiences who catch ZZ Ward in concert on this tour will more than likely get to hear her two new singles and get a taste of the record before it becomes available. Who doesn't like to hear new music early? Add in the stage presence that Ward brings to every show, and her tour ought to be a hot ticket this summer. Yet don't worry about missing out as music fans can get their tickets early through this week's on sales.
