If you don’t already have tickets to see Tyler Childers play this month, you’ll have to wait for 2019, as the Kentucky native’s December dates are all sold out. Fortunately, Childers has just added more than a dozen new shows to his itinerary for next March and April.
Childers is set to close out 2018 with a three-night stand in Louisville, Kentucky, and after a sojourn to warmer climes like Florida, Australia, and New Zealand, he’ll head right back to his home state. The new leg starts March 27th and 28th at Madison Theater in Covington, Kentucky, before running through cities in the Midwest, Southeast, and up the East Coast, with respective stops at Billy Bob’s Texas in Fort Worth, Texas, and Stubb’s Waller Creek Amphitheater in Austin, Texas, on April 5th and 6th. The last of the 13 new shows takes place at Harvester Performance Center in Rocky Mount, Virginia, four weeks on from the Covington dates.
Besides adding an Emerging Artist of the Year award from the Americana Music Association earlier this year, Childers will also be playing some previously announced dates in the first half of 2019 with John Prine and Willie Nelson. The new dates go on sale this Friday, December 14th.
