Steve Earle announces summer tour; in Bloomington on July 17

Alt-country badass Steve Earle has announced a summer tour, and it includes a stop in Bloomington on July 17, at the Buskirk-Chumley Theater. He will be touring in support of his new studio record (to be released April 26) and debut novel, I’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive. Earle will be accompanied by his band, The Dukes, and the group will include his wife, Allison Moorer. One of my favorite shows was Earle and his band at the Vogue for the I Feel Alright tour back in 1996. Loud, and full of attitude, the show rocked, and the song “Hard-Core Troubadour” remains a personal favorite of his post-prison catalog.

The tour will start June 9 in Seattle and includes stops in the Pacific Northwest, Canada and the Telluride Bluegrass Festival in Colorado before moving down South, to the Midwest, and a run up the East Coast.
