The Byrds' Roger McGuinn & Chris Hillman will celebrate the 50th anniversary of The Byrds' landmark country rock classic, Sweetheart of the Rodeo, by playing it in full and telling stories surrounding it, on an upcoming tour. They'll be joined onstage by Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives and Roger says, "We're all looking forward to taking the fans through the back pages of the recording. The concert will include songs that led up to that ground breaking trip to Nashville and all the songs from the album." There are currently only five announced dates, including LA and Albany, NY (which so far is the only Northeast show), but more are promised soon. All are listed, along with a stream of Sweetheart of the Rodeo, below.
