Blackberry Smoke Ready Series of Acoustic Shows for 2019 Break It Down Tour
In addition to their previously announced headlining tour in 2019, rock/country group Blackberry Smoke have unveiled a series of acoustic dates during the spring, in what will be the band's first-ever acoustic run. Dubbed the Break It Down Tour, the newly added dates will kick off on March 14 and run through April 7.
The Break It Down Tour will also feature special guests Ida Mae and Amanda Shires on select dates. The tour will be in support of the group's sixth studio album, Find a Light, which was released in April of 2018, as well as their Fall 2018 EP, The Southern Ground Sessions. That project included a collaboration with Shires on a cover of Tom Petty's "You Got Lucky," making it seem a reasonably likely possibility that fans can look forward to a live rendition of the song on tour.
In addition to the recently announced dates, Blackberry Smoke have already confirmed a massive concert calendar for 2019, getting started on Jan. 24 in Oxford, Miss. and stretching through Aug. 3 in Atlanta, Ga. For a full touring schedule and ticketing information, visit BlackberrySmoke.com.
