BLACKBERRY SMOKE CONFIRMS 2018 TOUR DATES

TICKETS ON-SALE THIS FRIDAY

ACCLAIMED BAND PERFORMS ON “THE LATE SHOW WITH STEPHEN COLBERT

“COUNTRY-ROCK’S MOST FEROCIOUS LIVE BAND” –Rolling Stone

“THE MOST FREEWHEELIN’ COLLECTION OF THEIR DECADE-AND-A-HALF CAREER.” –Entertainment Weekly

Blackberry Smoke will continue their extensive nationwide tour in 2018 including stops at New Orleans’ House of Blues (two shows), St. Louis’ The Pageant, Chattanooga’s Tivoli Theatre, Detroit’s Fillmore and Athens’ Georgia Theatre (two shows). Additionally, for the third straight year the band will headline the sold-out Outlaw Country Cruise in January. Tickets for the newly announced shows go on-sale this Friday, November 3 at 10:00am local time with fan pre-sale starting on Wednesday, November 1 (code: SMOKEFAN). See below for full tour details.

In advance of the 2018 dates, the Atlanta-based band is currently in the midst of the “Sinners and Sanctified Tour”—a special co-headline tour with Aaron Lewis. Upcoming dates include Little Rock’s Verizon Arena, New York’s Terminal 5 and Philadelphia’s Tower Theatre among many others. Additionally, on November 24, the band will return to Atlanta’s The Tabernacle for their “5th Annual Holiday Homecoming.” In the five years since the concert began, the band has donated over $150,000 to children’s cancer research. Proceeds from this year’s VIP meet and greets will be donated Children’s Healthcare of Atlanta. Tickets are on-sale now and can be purchased here.

The performances celebrate a series of break-through years for the acclaimed 5-piece band following the release of their No. 1 album, Like An Arrow, which features special guest Gregg Allman on the closing track, “Free On The Wing” (purchase here). Of the album, the Boston Globe praises, “…the needle can be dropped on Like an Arrow until its grooves become as well-worn as the classic albums that inspired this band of country-rock workhorses.” Watch their recent performance of the album’s single, “Waiting for the Thunder,” on “The Late Show with Stephen Colbert” here.

Since their debut in 2001, the 5-piece band—consisting of Starr (lead vocals, guitar), Richard Turner (bass, vocals), Brit Turner (drums), Paul Jackson (guitar, vocals), and Brandon Still (keyboards)—has released four full-length studio albums.
