Musician and occasional actor Chris Isaak will step away from the set of his television show and onto national concert stages this summer to promote his latest album. The fittingly titled Chris Isaak 2009 Tour launches July 10 at Harrah’s Casino in Council Bluffs, IA, and continues through September 6 at Ironstone Vineyards in Murphys, CA.
The trek will visit 32 cities across the national, including a single performance in Canada. Highlights include a July 17 concert at The Pageant in St. Louis, MO, an August 5 performance at Beacon Theatre in New York, NY, an August 21-23 run at The Mountain Winery in Saratoga, CA, and an August 26 show at Greek Theatre in Los Angeles, CA.
Ticket sales for most dates of the tour have already started. VIP packages are also available, which include options for premium seats, meet and greets, tour merchandise and more. Proceeds from select VIP packages will benefit the U.S. troops, according to an official tour statement.
Isaak is touring in support of “Mr. Lucky,” his tenth studio album and first all-original release in seven years. The record hit stores on February 24 and peaked at No. 29 on the Billboard 200.
“When I call this album ‘Mr. Lucky’ — or sing a song titled ‘Big Wide Wonderful World’ — my tongue is nowhere near my cheek,” Isaak is quoted on his official Web site. “The truth is that anyone who gets to do what I do for a living should be saying ‘Thank you’ on a daily basis. For all the pains and the pleasures of life, this is a wonderful world and I understand that I really am one of the luckier guys on earth.”
In addition to his musical career, which began in the mid-1980s, Isaak has also pursued film and television acting. Most recently, he has been hosting “The Chris Isaak Hour” for cable television. The program features interviews with a variety of musicians, such as Jewel, Stevie Nicks and Yusuf Islam (better known as Cat Stevens).
