Jason Isbell Expands Tour With New String of Dates

Tag: Rock

Jason Isbell is gearing up to release his new album The Nashville Sound this summer, but his attention is already getting focused well into the future. The Alabama native hits the road next month with his band the 400 Unit, and today he's added another two month's worth of shows to his tour itinerary with backing from his spouse Amanda Shires, as well as Frank Turner and the Sleeping Souls.

The tour starts with a handful of shows in May but doesn't really get busy until just after The Nashville Sound's June 16th release date. Today's announcement adds a second leg to the tour that follows a month-long break, with the new shows kicking off in Shreveport, Louisiana at the Shreveport Municipal Auditorium on August 20th. The 21 new dates, spread between August and September, take place mostly in the Midwest and South with a detour to the West coast, including a September 17th visit to the Orpheum Theatre in Los Angeles.

Isbell will play back-to-back nights at Chicago Theater as well as Charlotte, North Carolina's Ovens Auditorium, which will wrap up the newly announced run of shows. He'll then head to Nashville for a five-night residency at Ryman Auditorium, for which all the shows sold out in under two hours.

While he's on the road, Isbell and the 400 Unit will also be making a handful of network TV appearances, including The Late Show with Stephen Colbert, CBS Saturday Morning, and his first-ever appearance on The Daily Show with Trevor Noah. The Nashville Sound is the follow-up to 2015's acclaimed Something More Than Free and sees him reunited with that album's producer, Grammy winner Dave Cobb.
