Blackberry Smoke Announce ‘The Whippoorwill 10-Year Anniversary’ Tour

Blackberry Smoke country music

Blackberry Smoke is hittin’ the road.

In celebration of the 10-year anniversary of their incredible 2012 album The Whippoorwill, the boys are heading out on a pretty extensive trek that kicks off in October in Cleveland, Ohio and will run through December with the last stop in Wisconsin:

“Brother and sisters, it’s been 10 years since we released The Whippoorwill! There’s no better way to celebrate than with a tour.

The Whippoorwill 10 Year Anniversary Tour starts this October! Get tickets and VIP packages starting Friday.”

Tickets for all shows go on sale this Friday at 10am:

Just yesterday, the band shared a post that drummer Brit Turner suffered a serious heart attack over the weekend, but thankfully, he was able to make it to the hospital and had a stent placed, and is now resting in stable condition.

Going forward, they’ll be touring acoustically until Brit can make a full recovery and get back behind the drum kit.

Though there is no official date for his return for anytime this year, no matter what, the southern rock outfit from Atlanta is sure to put on a helluva show.

If they’ll be stopping by anywhere near your neck of the woods, do yourself a favor and get to a show.
