The three icons of Americana: Lucinda Williams, Steve Earle and Dwight Yoakam are hitting the road together for the first time this summer for a joint North American tour, titled “LSD”, a playful nod to all their names.
The acclaimed singer-songwriters kick off their LSD tour on 12 June at the Blue Hills Bank Pavilion in Boston, Massachusetts before closing the tour on 18 August at the Farm Bureau Insurance Lawn in Indianapolis, Indiana. The 18-city circuit will also include stops at NYC’s Beacon Theatre on 13 June, NY’s Bethel Woods Center for the Arts on 15 June as well as Nashville, San Francisco and Chicago.
All three musicians have albums and projects to support. Williams recently re-recorded her 1992 album, Sweet Old World, which recently celebrated its 25th anniversary, while Earle is marking the 30th anniversary of his iconic album, Copperhead Road.
Yoakam meanwhile recently announced the upcoming launch of his own SiriusXM station, Dwight Yoakam and The Bakersfield Beat that highlights his catalogue along with California country and country rock. Described as “When Country Went Mod”, the channel will hone in on the music that both defined and inspired the famous Bakersfield sound.
Opening for the tour is Dwight Yoakam protégé and up and coming alt.country star King Leg, whose debut LP, Meet King Leg, was co-produced by Yoakam.
Selected pre-sales for the LSD tour begin Monday, 26 March with tickets for the general public will be available starting Friday, 30 March at LiveNation.com. As the tour tagline says, “It’s Worth The Trip”.
