Fresh off last fall’s The Southern Ground Sessions acoustic EP, Blackberry Smoke is looking to leave their amplifiers at home and hit the road this spring for their first-ever acoustic trek, the Break It Down Tour.
The 18-date run of shows takes place in March and April, slotted into a gap during their preexisting 2019 tour dates. Joining the Atlanta Southern-rockers on select shows will be Ida Mae and Amanda Shires. These new dates include back-to-back nights at the Opera House in Lexington, Kentucky, three in a row at the Harvester Performance Center in Rocky Mountain, Virginia, and consecutive gigs at City Winery in New York City, wrapping up the tour.
Released last October, The Southern Ground Sessions featured Shires on two of its six tracks, including a cover of Tom Petty’s “You Got Lucky,” and came on the heels of the band’s sixth studio LP, Find a Light. Their 2019 tour schedule kicks off January 24th at the Lyric Oxford in Oxford, Mississippi.
