Nashville, TN – For the first time, critically acclaimed, award-winning artists Father John Misty and Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit will co-headline a national tour that will run throughout June. The tour will begin on June 5th in San Diego, with stops that include Berkeley, Seattle, Minneapolis, Chicago, Detroit, Brooklyn, Philadelphia, Dallas and Houston before wrapping up in Tulsa, OK on June 29th. Support for these dates will come from Jade Bird (June 6th-25th) and Erin Rae (June 27th-29th). See a full list of tour dates below.
Four-time Grammy Award winner, Jason Isbell and The 400 Unit are touring in support of their album The Nashville Sound (winner of Grammys for Best Americana and Best American Roots Song for “If We Were Vampires”) and the highly praised live set Live From The Ryman. Isbell has become one the most respected songwriters of his generation, with a penchant for articulating some of our deepest human emotions and creating poignant narratives inspired by the working class. Together with the mighty 400 Unit – Derry deBorja (keyboards), Chad Gamble (drums), Jimbo Hart (bass), Sadler Vaden (guitar) and Amanda Shires (fiddle) – they have become one of the strongest live acts on the road today.
Father John Misty is currently supporting God’s Favorite Customer, his acclaimed release from 2018. Written largely in New York between summer 2016 and winter 2017, the album reflects on the experience of being caught between the vertigo of heartbreak and the manic throes of freedom. God’s Favorite Customer reveals a bittersweetness and directness in Tillman’s songwriting, without sacrificing any of his wit or taste for the absurd. God’s Favorite Customer earned placement on over 30 “Best Albums of 2018” lists & readers polls including Esquire, KCRW, NME, NPR, PASTE, Pitchfork, Q, Rolling Stone, Stereogum, Uncut, Under the Radar, Uproxx, and Village Voice’s “Pazz & Jop.”
Presale tickets for these shows begin Wednesday, February 13th @ 10 am (local). The fan presale code for these shows will be “FJMISBELL.” Tickets will then go on sale to the general public Friday, February 15th @ 10 am (local).
