Sturgill Simpson released a new album this past Friday called SOUND & FURY that’s been blowing everyone’s mind, and tonight he played a show at Troubadour in Los Angeles for the Special Forces Foundation.
It was reportedly one of the toughest tickets in town this weekend, with tickets reportedly disappearing in less than sixty seconds when they were put on sale. And the rest of his relatively short tour in the next week is completely sold out, so I think it’s fair to say he’ll be a tough ticket for the foreseeable future.
From LA he heads up to the Bay Area for two shows, first onto the Grateful Dead haunt owned by Phil Lesh, Terrapin Crossroads, then a show at the Independent before flying out for a set of shows on the East Coast. Then he goes to Europe in early 2020 which you can get tickets for here.
Anyway, on to the show tonight… Joe Rogan was there among many others (and loved it), and scroll down to see some other fan shot photos and video clips from the set.
“Simpson let loose this pulsating beast of rock, blues, psychedelia, and even new-wave for the first time, playing the album with his four-piece band, front to back.” – Billboard

Central KY’s own Sturgill Simpson put on a benefit show tonight for The Special Forces Foundation (formerly The Green Beret Association) that helps Military veterans get back to civilian lives. Great, long, genre-defying concert for a great cause. Thanks Jen for the tix that sold out in less than 60 seconds!
Here’s the setlist from the show…
