Ten-time GRAMMY nominee Tauren Wells will kick off an extensive headline tour in support of his new album, Joy In The Morning, on October 6 in Tampa, FL. The North American run will bring him to such historic venues as The Town Hall in New York City (October 17), Los Angeles’ Orpheum Theatre (November 5), The Soundstage at Graceland in Memphis (November 12) and Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium (November 15). Special guests Aaron Cole and Lakewood Music will support on all dates. See below for itinerary.
Tickets for The Joy In The Morning Tour will go on sale on Monday, May 23 at 10a local time. This outing is Well’s third headline tour, following last year’s sold-out, 23-city run.
“Performing is my favorite part of what I do. I love it,” says Wells. “I love the entertainment aspect of it – just being able to get out there and dance and sing and crack jokes and tell stories. It is life-giving and it’s a great privilege to have people showing up every night to go there together.”
Joy In The Morning will be released by Capitol Records/CCMG on June 10. Wells will celebrate with an appearance at the GRAMMY Museum L.A. Live on June 13. The evening, which is part of the museum’s “The Drop” series, will feature an intimate conversation with Wells, moderated by television host Jason Kennedy, and a performance. Tickets are available HERE.
