After nearly a three-year hiatus, Evan Felker and the fellas of Turnpike Troubadours are officially BACK, playing their first two shows at the iconic Cain’s Ballroom this past Friday and Saturday.
A fitting location for the Oklahoma natives, the 1,800-person venue was packed to capacity both nights, with tens and tens of thousands left unable to get tickets. Hell, I feel like these fellas could sell out AT&T Stadium right now.
The good news is this is just the beginning, they have a whole mess of tour and festival dates coming up this year, and many many more of us will get a chance to see them this year.
But that being said, if you’re like me and weren’t not able to get out to Oklahoma this past weekend, you’re LIVING for the amateur videos on the internet right now.
And NOTHING will get you more fired up than that entrance video.
I mean, I wasn’t even there and you can feel the electricity in the room, the anticipation pulsing through the crowd, and when Evan hits that first line…
“Well she was born in the morning, late October San Antone…”
I’m gonna watch this video 5,000 times today…
Here’s a few more performances from the opening weekend:
“The Bird Hunters”
“Pay No Rent”
“Long Drive Home”
Turnpike Troubadours To Play Back To Back Shows At Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium
TAKE ME TO CHURCH.
The Turnpike Troubadours are officially back in action this year, and have already kicked off 2022 with a number of new tour dates.
In addition to the back-to-back shows at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, the fellas are set to play a number of iconic country music spots around the country, including Billy Bob’s Texas, and Floore’s Country Store.
However today, the band has announced that they’ll be performing at the Mother Church of country music, the great Ryman Auditorium in Nashville, Tennessee.
A run of back to back shows, Turnpike will head to Nashville on July 29th and 30th, with tickets set to go on sale this coming Friday at 10am CT.
With how hard it’s been to get Turnpike tickets this year, I would expect a couple shows at the Ryman to be no different. An iconic venue with a decent capacity, but nowhere near the amount of tickets Turnpike could sell right now.
Needless to say, these tickets are going FAST.
“This is a special one for us. The Ryman is a room we’ve wanted to play for a very long time. We’ll be playing two shows at the legendary venue July 29 and 30.”
