As Billy Strings gears up to kick off his 2023 spring tour tonight at Landers Center in Southaven, MS, the bluegrass firebrand announced the first seven shows of the tour will be available to stream free for all subscribers.

“We’re ready to get this tour started and happy to share that we’re live-streaming the first seven nights FREE for @nugsnet
subscribers!” Strings wrote in an announcement posted to social media. “Set your reminders or sign up here to watch, and we’ll see you this Thursday in Mississippi.”

Following the tour opener in Mississippi, Strings and his band will head to Mobile, AL for two shows at Mobile Civic Center Arena on Friday the 14th and Saturday the 15th, which will both be livestreamed free for nugs subscribers, and so will the following one-off at Yuengling Center in Tampa, FL on Tuesday the 18th. The cost-free couch tour will culminate next weekend with a three-night run at St. Augustine Amphitheatre in St. Augustine, FL beginning on the high holy day of 4/20 and concluding on the 22nd.

The tour will pick back up on May 11th with a sold-out two-night stand at Red Rocks Amphitheatre followed by a recently added one-off at Denver’s Mission Ballroom on May 13th and continue from there with stops in the Southwest, California, Texas, and the Midwest.
