Gary Clark Jr. announced a spring U.S. tour in support of his upcoming third LP, due out in early 2019. The blues-rock guitarist will kick off the trek March 9th in Miami, Florida and wrap with a trio of dates – April 5th, 6th and 7th – in Nashville, Tennessee.
A Chase pre-sale for Clark’s dates in Chicago, Illinois and New York, New York will begin Tuesday, November 13th. A pre-sale for the musician’s fan club will launch November 13th at 10 a.m.; a Spotify sale commences Wednesday, November 14th at noon ET; and general tickets go on sale Friday, November 16th at 10 a.m. local time.
The 2019 dates follow a brief run of shows for November and early December. His next gig is Monday, November 12th – the first of four scheduled for the Fonda Theatre in Los Angeles, California.
Every full-priced ticket will include either a standard CD or digital copy of Clark’s upcoming album. That record, which follows 2015’s The Story of Sonny Boy Slim, includes a trio of tracks he premiered during Fox Sports’ televised coverage of the World Series.
In October, Clark previewed the as-yet-untitled LP with a trailer video featuring in-studio clips and audio from new songs. The singer, who covered the Beatles’ “Come Together” in late 2017, told Rolling Stone that he’s exploring darker themes – and possibly tapping into modern politics – on the album.
“I don’t know if I will be addressing Trump directly, but that’s something that’s happening in life and it’s hard not to see it happen,” he said. “The things I’m writing and thinking about aren’t necessarily meadows and orchards, you know what I mean?”
