After releasing the solo project And It’s Still Alright in 2020, Nathaniel Rateliff will reassemble his band the Night Sweats for a summer and fall tour. The Americana soul singer announced the 24-date trek on Monday.
Rateliff’s tour kicks off July 20th in Charlotte, North Carolina, and runs through mid-October, with an array of rotating special guests. Marcus King Band, Delta Spirit, Tré Burt, Bahamas, and Margo Price — with whom Rateliff recently taped an episode of CMT Crossroads — appear on select shows.
Mixed in with the Night Sweats’ headlining dates are a trio of festival shows: Rateliff and company join Willie Nelson and the Outlaw Music Festival Tour for two shows on September 22nd and 24th in Georgia and Maryland, respectively; and play the Mempho Festival in Memphis, Tennessee, on October 2nd.
The centerpiece of the tour is Rateliff’s regular stop at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, Colorado. He and his band play three consecutive nights at the scenic venue this year, with Delta Spirit in support. On July 17th, Rateliff and the Night Sweats will release the live album Red Rocks 2020, recorded in the empty amphitheater last September. A performance video for the song “Mavis” is out now.
Tickets for all shows go on sale May 27th at 10 a.m. local time.
