Neal Francis will cap off 2023 with a Francis Comes Alive run set to carry the vintage piano man through New Year’s Eve, which he’ll celebrate at Ogden Theatre in Denver. The run of five shows throughout the Southeast and Denver will see Francis helm an 11-piece backing band.

Francis Comes Alive lands Neal and his extended backing troupe in Charleston, SC on November 30th. A continuous stretch of shows through the Southeast ensues, taking the band to Atlanta (12/1), Asheville, NC (12/2), and Raleigh (12/3) before Francis travels to Denver for New Year’s Eve. The Atlanta and North Carolina dates will feature support from The Psycodelics while The Texas Gentlemen will open at the Ogden.

A ticket pre-sale for the newly announced Neal Francis shows is currently underway. Fans can gain access by texting NEALFRANCIS to 29147. Tickets go on sale to the general public Thursday at 10 a.m. local time.

Francis Comes Alive will wrap what is already a banner year for Neal, one filled with relentless touring as the Chicago R&B throwback graduates to consistently larger venues. High-profile sets at festivals like Jam Cruise and Daze Between New Orleans have kept Francis in the national consciousness as a growing legion of followers eagerly awaits a full-length follow-up to his landmark 2021 LP In Plain Sight.
