Legendary singer-songwriter John Prine will be hitting the road next spring, where he'll be performing songs from his as-of-yet untitled forthcoming album -- which will be his first consisting of original material in 13 years. On this tour, John will be playing some shows with very notable artists, which includes a co-headlining show with Sturgill Simpson at NYC's Radio City Music Hall on April 13. Tickets go on sale Friday (11/8), with various presales beginning Wednesday (11/6).
His other dates include a Philadelphia show with Kurt Vile at Merriam Theatre on April 14 (tickets), a Norfolk, VA show with Margo Price (who just played NPR's 10th-anniversary show) at Chrysler Hall on June 2 (tickets), and more. Apart from a date in Kentucky, each ticket sold from the tour will include a CD copy of John's upcoming album. More tour dates, along with details on John's upcoming LP, are still to come. All dates are listed below.
You can watch Kurt Vile introduce John's recently-published book, John Prine Beyond Words, and briefly cover "That’s the Way the World Goes Round," below.
