The Marcus King Band has announced a special Hometown Throwdown New Year’s celebration set to take place on December 30th and 31st in Greenville, SC. This follows last week’s news of a Marcus King Live tour planned for winter and spring 2022.
On Thursday, December 30th, Darby Wilcox & The Peep Show will join The Marcus King Band at Greenville’s Peace Center for the first of two consecutive Hometown Throwdown performances. Then, on Friday, MKB will ring in the New Year with support from Marvin King Revue.
Following a month-long break in the action, King will hit the road for four straight months, starting on February 6th at Wooly’s in Des Moines, IA. From there, the Marcus King Live tour will head through Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, Arkansas, and Mississippi, before working its way up the East Coast.
Two nights in Florida—specifically, Orlando (2/18) and Fort Lauderdale (2/20)—will set up stops in Georgia, North Carolina, Virginia, and Buffalo, NY, ahead of a two-night run at The Capitol Theatre in Port Chester, NY (3/4–3/5). Further north King will go, up through Massachusetts, Vermont, and Maine, before traveling across the world to Sydney (4/18) and Melbourne, Australia (4/20).
King will return stateside with a romp through California, Arizona, New Mexico, Colorado, and Montana, ahead of a trip to The Great White North in mid-May. King will then wrap it up with appearances in Washington, Idaho, Nevada, and two additional stops in California.

In other Marcus King news, The Coda Collection has begun streaming The Marcus King Band Performs El Dorado. This rarely-seen live performance arrived in support of King’s Grammy-nominated, Dan Auerbach-produced debut album, El Dorado, filmed at a Nashville, TN studio in 2020 as part of the Four Of A Kind streaming series.
“The common thread for these four shows was a theme of togetherness and trying to do it in the safest way possible,” said King in a press release. “To be surrounded by some love and feel music again is what I needed, and I think that’s what everybody needed at that time. These performances were about as close as we could get to that when we filmed them during the pandemic last year. We’re happy to be able to share the first of them with the world now.”
Throughout the concert, The Marcus King Band delivered powerful renditions of songs like “The Well”, “One Day She’s Here”, and more.
