With over 60 worldwide dates already slated for the remainder of 2018, the fast-rising Marcus King Band is on a mission to create a fresh musical experience that ties together rock, blues, and soul into a distinctly Southern lineage. Today, they announce the Carolina Confessions Tour, escalating their combustible live show to a new class of ballrooms and theatres across North America.
Joined by special guest Ida Mae, the Marcus King Band will hit the road for more than a dozen dates through November and December, including New York, Nashville, and Boston, following a stint on the Tedeschi Trucks Band’s Wheels of Soul Tour – see dates below. In September, they’ve already sold out one headlining night at the Troubadour in Los Angeles, and added a second, while forcing next month’s Austin stop to a room double the capacity following overwhelming demand.
The Carolina Confessions Tour fan pre-sale starts at 12pm EST this Wednesday, July 18th, with the general on-sale 10am local time Friday, July 20th.
“One of music’s next great guitarists” (Washington Post), the 22-year-old King has been writing songs, performing onstage for half his lifetime and fronting his own groups for nearly a decade. Since he was a teenager, he’s been trading licks with famous fans and mentors Warren Haynes and Derek Trucks whenever their paths have crossed. This fall, he prepares to release a new project that unveils his rapidly maturing artistic vision – more info coming soon.
