Indigo Girls Embark on Summer Tour, Co-Headlining Leg with Joan Baez
The Indigo Girls and Joan Baez will both head out on tours later this year, and after doing some shows on their own they plan to team up for a string of co-headlining concerts.
The co-headlining dates will run from a June 9 appearance at the Ravinia in Highland Park, Illinois through a June 23 concert at the Tanglewood in Lenox, Massachusetts. Additionally, the tour will hit Vienna, Virginia; Atlanta; New York and Newark.
The Atlanta stop will consist of two shows at the Chastain Park Amphitheater, and will serve as hometown shows for the Indigo Girls.
Before the co-headlining shows, Baez will play a few shows on her own beginning June 1 in Boulder, Colorado. She also will perform in Arvada, Colorado; Salina, Kansas and Apple Valley, Minnesota.
The Indigo Girls are just now finishing up a tour featuring support from the Shadowboxers. The two groups will play tonight, March 26, at the Culture Room in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, tomorrow at the House of Blues in Orlando and then March 28 at the Florida Theatre in Jacksonville, Florida.
After that, the band will travel to Louisville, Kentucky to play Whitney Hall backed by the Kentucky Symphony. The group will take a break and then will play two more symphony shows before joining up with Baez. The first will be in Norfolk, Virginia with the Virginia Symphony on May 31 and the second will be in Clearwater, Florida with the Clearwater Symphony on June 1.
The Indigo Girls haven’t released a single since 2011’s Beauty Queen Sister. That album marked the 13th studio album for the duo featuring Amy Ray and Emily Saliers. Baez’s most recent album is 2008’s Day After Tomorrow, featuring songs written by a variety of songwriters including Steve Earle, Elvis Costello and T Bone Burnett. The title track is written by Tom Waits, and first appeared on his album Real Gone.
