After playing three live gigs at Billy Bob’s Texas in April and a string of socially distanced ballpark concerts, Midland have announced a proper tour for the fall. The Last Resort Tour finds the country trio teaming up with Hailey Whitters for more than 25 shows across the U.S.
The Last Resort Tour kicks off in Phoenix and will take the “Drinkin’ Problem” Grammy nominees to metro areas like Detroit, Chicago, Philadelphia, Boston, New York, and Atlanta. The run wraps up in mid-December in Shreveport, Louisiana.
Back in March, Midland released the documentary film The Sonic Ranch, which detailed their origin and first recording session at the Sonic Ranch studio in Tornillo, Texas. A companion soundtrack album was released along with the movie. In an interview with Rolling Stone, Midland’s Cameron Duddy spoke to the longevity of the band and why staying together wasn’t a sure thing.
“Scott Borchetta said something that I thought was pretty on point recently. I’m paraphrasing, but he said, ‘I signed Midland knowing it’d be an incredible risk because it’s hard to keep a band together,'” Duddy says. “It’s true. Being in a band is harder than being a solo act. You’re constantly working through dynamics that are ever changing.”
Tickest for the tour go on sale May 7th at 10 a.m. local time via the band’s website.
