Lucero touring, Ben Nichols playing solo in NJ
Country punk vets Lucero returned this year with the reliably great Among the Ghosts, and they did tons of touring (and they were supposed to open for Jawbreaker but Hurricane Florence got in the way). They've got more dates scheduled for 2019, including a brief Australian run in January/February, Spain's Azkena Rock Festival in June, and a show at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre opening for The Devil Makes Three in May (tickets).
Right after that Australian run, frontman Ben Nichols will play an intimate solo show at NJ's Crossroads on February 9 with Chris Batten. Tickets are on sale. That appears to be Ben's only solo show at the moment, but we'll let you know if more are added.
All Lucero dates are listed, with a video of Ben playing solo at an Among the Ghosts release show, below.
