Jackson Browne Pushs Acoustic Tour into Fall
Jackson Browne’s previously scheduled summer acoustic tour hasn’t even begun yet, but he’s already announced more dates for the fall.
The previously announced dates run from July 14 in Charlotte to August 15 in Cleveland Heights, Ohio, and the new dates will begin October 15 at the Creative Arts Center in Morgantown, W. Va. The tour, which will also feature just Browne and an acoustic guitar, is scheduled to run through November 15 when the singer arrives at the Pikes Peak Center in Colorado Springs, Colo. In between, the new dates include stops in Newport News, Va.; South Bend, Ind.; Chicago; Duluth, Minn.; Grand Prairie, Texas; Wichita, Kan. and Denver.
As with the already announced dates, Browne will be bringing along Sara Watkins as the special guest and opener for the tour. Watkins is a founding member of the country group Nickel Creek, and Browne is excited to have her on the road with him.
“I’m really excited to have Sara joining me on this tour,” Browne said in a statement. “We’ve played together a number of times in the last few years, sometimes on her show and sometimes mine, and it’s always been a thrill for me. I’m floored by her amazing instrumental virtuosity and by her beautiful voice, and most of all, I love her songs.”
Browne has said that he will draw from his entire catalog for the upcoming tour, from 1972’s self-titled debut to Time the Conqueror, which was released in 2008. In all, Browne has released 13 studio albums throughout his career.
In other Browne news, it was recently announced that he will collaborate with indie-rock band The Flaming Lips as they attempt to set a Guinness World Record for most concerts performed in multiple cities in a single day. They will have to play more than seven show in the day to break the record Jay-Z set back in 2006.
