Jason Isbell Announces More 2017 Tour Dates
One of the most prolific singer-songwriters working today, Jason Isbell, is returning to the road with his band the 400 Unit. Today, he announced a five-week summer tour of the U.S., with European dates booked for the fall.
He'll begin on June 17 at the U.S. Cellular Center in Asheville, N.C, and wind up July 23 at North Charleston Coliseum & Performing Arts Center in North Charleston, S.C. Depending on the venue, the opening act will either be the Mountain Goats, Strand of Oaks or Isbell's wife, Amanda Shires, whose most recent record, My Piece of Land, came out in 2016.
On October 25, he'll kick off another tour at the Albert Hall in Nottingham, England, and he'll remain in Europe through Nov. 14, when it concludes at the Koncerthuset in Copenhagen, Denmark. Tift Merritt is slated to open all dates.
The new shows fill up an already busy calendar for Isbell. In addition to his previously announced concert schedule, a month ago, he began recording the follow-up to 2015's highly acclaimed Something More Than Free, working again with Dave Cobb, who produced his previous two records. Last week, he posted the above teaser video showing him and his band at work in the studio.
