[11/10/22]: Tyler Childers will make his long-awaited return to full-scale touring in 2023 with the Send In The Hounds Tour. Set to carry the singer-songwriter through the bulk of next year, the concerts will feature support from a rotating lineup including Charley Crockett, Marcus King, Drive-By Truckers, Margo Price, and more.
The tour begins with two nights across the pond in London (2/9, 2/10) before landing back on domestic soil, beginning in New Orleans (4/14). The stretch of 27 U.S. dates will take Childers and his backing band The Food Stamps from coast to coast, playing festivals Stagecoach in Indio, CA (4/30) and the newly announced Two Step Inn in Georgetown, TX (4/16). The Send In The Hounds Tour will culminate with a two-night stand at Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Morrison, CO (9/27, 9/28).
Many dates include two supporting acts, with additional performances by rising artists John R. Miller, S.G. Goodman, Abby Hamilton, Miles Miller, and Wayne Graham. A pre-sale for tickets begins on November 16th at 9 a.m. local time before tickets go on sale to the general public on the 18th at 9 a.m. local.
The Send In The Hounds Tour marks Tyler Childers’ first full outing since his Good Look’n Tour with Sturgill Simpson was cut short by the pandemic in 2020. Since then, Childers released his acclaimed 2020 bluegrass album Long Violent History, where he used traditional American mountain music to make a progressive statement on racial inequality in the United States.
The native Kentuckian then went underground as he pursued long-term sobriety, appearing sporadically and sparingly at festivals and Red Rocks. He returned in September with Can I Take My Hounds To Heaven?, an ambitious, three-part album that blended gospel arrangements with ornate stringed instrumentation and electronic music elements.
