Steve Earle & The Dukes “30th Anniversary of Copperhead Road Tour” with The Mastersons
May 19, 2018 @ 8:00 pm$53.50 – $73.50
Steve Earle & The Dukes have announced spring tour dates in support of Copperhead Road’s 30th anniversary. Earle will be performing Copperhead Road in its entirety and the live set will also include songs from his new album, So You Wanna Be an Outlaw, which Rolling Stone hailed as “an intensely raw and often delightfully clamorous nod to the fellow outliers the young Texan gravitated toward when he arrived in Nashville in 1974.”
Copperhead Road is Earle’s third studio album and often referred to as his first “rock record.” The New York Times listed it as one of its recommended “Sounds Around Town” the week it was released and Time Magazine included it in their Critics Choice of the year. Rolling Stone has listed it as one of “50 Country Albums Every Rock Fan Should Own,” and said it “established Earle as country’s left-wing conscience.”
ABOUT STEVE EARLE:
Three-time GRAMMY Award recipient and 14-time GRAMMY nominee Steve Earle is a cornerstone artist of Americana music. One of the most acclaimed singer-songwriters of his generation, he has released 16 albums. His songs have been recorded by such music legends as Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, Carl Perkins, Waylon Jennings, Vince Gill, and Joan Baez. He has created such country classics as “When You Fall in Love,” “Guitar Town,” “Goodbye’s All We’ve Got Left,” “A Far Cry From You,” and “Nowhere Road.”
Always musically adventurous, Earle has crafted folk, blues, rock, country, rockabilly, and bluegrass recordings. His diverse collaborators have included such notables as The Pogues, Lucinda Williams, Patti Smith, The Fairfield Four, The Indigo Girls, Chris Hillman, Sheryl Crow, and Shawn Colvin. He is a longtime social and political activist whose causes have included the abolition of the death penalty and the removal of the Confederate symbol from the Mississippi State flag.
A true Renaissance man, Earle has also become a novelist, a film, TV, and stage actor, playwright, author, record producer, and radio host over the course of his 30+ year career. Earlier this year, he appeared in the off-Broadway play Samara, for which Earle also wrote the score that The New York Times called “exquisitely subliminal.” He is also in the process of writing his memoirs for future publication.
