Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real are launching an extensive headline tour this fall beginning Sept. 3 that includes newly confirmed shows at Chicago’s The Vic Theatre, Boston’s Royale, Brooklyn’s Brooklyn Steel, Atlanta’s Roxy, Seattle’s The Showbox, two nights at Los Angeles’ El Rey Theatre, and Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium, among several others.
Tickets go on sale this Friday, June 25 at 10 a.m. local time at lukasnelson.com. Ahead of the fall run, the band will also perform special shows in Nashville at the Basement East on June 23 and in Austin at Antone’s on June 26.
“I’m from what one might say is the ultimate road family—I’ve been on the road my entire life,” shares Nelson. “I’ve never been anywhere longer than three months, and suddenly here we are, the four of us together. And thank god we were together. I can’t remember the last time we had that much time together as a family. We had a lot of really important bonding that happened during that time. And I have to say, as terrible as the pandemic has been in so many ways, for my inner peace, I was able to take a lot of good from this time. I was able to pause and reflect.”
He continues, “It took me a really long time to come back to the home in my heart. In a physical sense, that’s Texas and Hawaii. But in a spiritual sense as well—I think I finally decided not to run from who I am and who I am destined to be. First and foremost, that’s a songwriter. That’s what this record means to me. There’s a story being told through the whole record. A story about connection and coming home.”
The new tour supports the band’s new album, A Few Stars Apart, out now on Fantasy Records. Produced by Dave Cobb, the album was inspired by the stillness Nelson found while riding out the beginning of the pandemic with his family in Texas, and was recorded with the full band live on eight-track tape over three weeks at Nashville’s historic RCA Studio A.
