Jackson Browne goes solo on the road and Blink-182 takes time off to mourn. These stories and more are in the daily tour recap for September 3, as compiled by TicketNews.
American singer-songwriter Jackson Browne has spent much of the last year touring the world behind his most recent studio album, “Time the Conqueror.” This fall, the journey continues in the states with a solo acoustic tour that spans November to December.
Reunited pop-punk A-listers Blink-182 are taking time off from the road this week as they mourn the loss of close friend, Adam “DJ AM” Goldstein. The celebrity club DJ collaborated with Blink drummer Travis Barker in recent years, and the two men were the sole survivors of a September 2008 plane crash. The show must go on for Pennywise, though. Even though the veteran punk band parted ways with its lead singer earlier this summer, the group will uphold its concert commitments this year with a fill-in vocalist as it continues the search for a full-time replacement.
Those are the complete concert and tour reports for this Thursday, but additional artist updates are outlined in brief below:
The Meat Puppets will follow up its early fall tour with Dead Confederate with a new round of late fall 2009 concert plans. The latest agenda will see the band continue it’s U.S. trek on November 3 at Proud Larry’s in Oxford, MS, and conclude the excursion on November 28 at World Café Live in Philadelphia, PA. Other scheduled performances are November 7 at The Waiting Room in Omaha, NE; November 12-14 at Schubas Tavern in Chicago, IL; and November 25 at Bowery Ballroom in New York, NY. The Puppets’ current tour leg continues tomorrow (September 4) at Pine Mountain Amphitheater in Flagstaff, AZ, and ends November 1 at the annual Voodoo Experience in New Orleans, LA.
Son Volt has finalized plans for a late-year Southern U.S. tour leg. The regional venture launches November 5 at The Blue Note in Columbia, MO, and wraps up November 21 at Rhythm & Brews in Chattanooga, TN.. Along the way, the rockers will stop for sets on November 7 at The Lyric in Oxford, MS; November 11 at The Continental Club in Houston, TX; November 14 at Anton’s in Austin, TX; and November 20 at The Handlebar in Greenville, SC, among other dates. Before jumping into that trek, the band will first complete an early fall tour leg further north, from September 10 at Exit/In in Nashville, TN, through September 27 at First Avenue in Minneapolis, MN.
Thao with the Get Down Stay Down will romp across North America later this year on a nearly 30-date year-end, headlining tour. The itinerary opens officially with an October 15 engagement at Soho Music Club in Santa Barbara, CA, and completes its coast-to-coast circuit on November 20 at Glass House in Pomona, CA. The quirky indie rock crew is also set for shows on October 23 at the Biltmore Cabaret in Vancouver, BC; October 30 at the Empty Bottle in Chicago, IL; November 4 at Bowery Ballroom in New York, NY; November 11 at Warehouse Live in Houston, TX; and November 17 at The Rhythm Room in Phoenix, AZ. Before all of that, Thao will lead her backing band to Morrison, CO, where they’re scheduled to perform on September 12 at this year’s Monolith Festival.
