Sturgill Simpson, Tyler Childers Teaming Up for 2020 A Good Look’n Tour
Editor's Note: A number of Simpson and Childers' 2020 tour dates have been postponed or canceled due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Click here for more details.
A few weeks after Sturgill Simpson hinted at his plans to tour with Tyler Childers in 2020, the hotly anticipated trek has officially been announced. The two buzzy Americana singer-songwriters will embark on the 2020 A Good Look'n Tour in late February.
Simpson and Childers' A Good Look'n Tour is set to begin on Feb. 21 in Birmingham, Ala., according to a Sunday (Oct. 27) Instagram post from the @wherethef--kissturgillsimpson Instagram account, which shows a wall full of posters advertising the tour. A total of 37 shows -- including stops in Washington, DC; Dallas, Texas; and Boston, Mass. -- are on the poster in the Instagram photo, and additional nights in a handful of cities were added following the trek's initial onsale period.
"We are a live band. Everyone knows we are a live band. Steal the record or give it away, just come to the shows," Simpson says in a press release. "For free tickets send a message to Tyler’s Instagram."
A full list of A Good Look'n Tour shows is below. Visit SturgillSimpson.com for more information on tickets.
Simpson first teased his tour with Childers in late September, sharing the news of the trek on the podcast The Joe Rogan Experience but giving no details beyond that the tour would include Childers and would start in February. A few days before the Sunday Instagram post officially announced the tour, posters started popping up in various cities advertising not-yet-announced shows: On Friday (Oct. 25), the Facebook page Music City Maven shared a photo showing posters for a May 22 show in Nashville pinned up near the Cobra in East Nashville.
Simpson released his newest album, Sound & Fury, on Sept. 27. The project is accompanied by an anime film, set to the record's 10 songs. Childers, meanwhile, released his newest album, Country Squire, in August. Both that record and Childers' prior project, Purgatory, were produced by Simpson. Both artists are natives of Kentucky.
