After many years of numerous awards, extensive solo/acoustic tours, successful acting roles on HBO’s The Wire and Treme, Steve Earle, the rabble rousing godfather of the alternative country scene is back to tour around Europe in 2014, including an exclusive performance at the Liverpool Auditorium (Echo Arena).

With his most recent release in 2013 ‘The Low Highway’, the 2011 UK chart topper ‘I’ll Never Get Out Of This World Alive’, Grammy Award winning 2009 release of his tribute album Townes, and going back even further to his No1 debut album ‘Guitar Town’, Earle has an extensive back catalogue which ranges to just under 30 years ago. This rare full-band performance is a must-see for any Steve Earle fan, country enthusiast, or in fact anyone else who wants a first-hand look at a high-end artist within the realms of country music.
Support slot will come from the rapidly rising trio Red Sky July, ahead of their new album release ‘Shadowbirds’ out in September 2014. Gorgeous harmonies, beautiful melodies, top-drawer songwriting, and an alt-country twang are the name of the game.
