Sturgill Simpson Adds Fall Tour Dates, Sells Out Three Ryman Auditorium Shows
Sturgill Simpson has announced additional dates for his 2015 Living the Dream Tour.
The singer has a busy end to 2015 planned, as his tour dates now extend through the end of November with few breaks. Simpson will play in Minnesota, Texas, Colorado, Oregon, Washington, California, Utah, British Columbia, Pennsylvania, New York, North Carolina, Virginia, Massachusetts, Alabama, Georgia and Tennessee, including three sold-out nights at Nashville's historic Ryman Auditorium.
At select shows, Simpson will be joined by either Merle Haggard and Kris Kristofferson or Jason Isbell. The new dates more than double his originally scheduled fall tour, which included only a handful of shows in September.
The 2015 Living the Dream Tour is in support of Simpson's sophomore album, Metamodern Sounds in Country Music, which propelled the singer into the national spotlight. In the 14 months since the album's release, Simpson has appeared at many festivals and served as a guest performer on almost every late-night show.
Simpson also signed a new record deal with Atlantic Records earlier this year. Few details are available about his upcoming third album, but the singer has been spending some time in the studio with producer Dave Cobb, who also worked on Simpson's first two releases.
