Alabama Shakes LEAD

Alabama Shakes’ debut full-length, Boys & Girls, was one of my favorite albums released last year (and #33 overall on LA Music Blog’s Top 50 Albums of 2012 list), but I’ve yet to see the Brittany Howard-fronted act live. That may change fairly soon, though, as the band announced a series of North American tour dates today.

This Alabama Shakes headlining tour kicks off in Columbus, Ohio on June 18th and includes a two-night stop at Los Angeles’ Hollywood Palladium on July 17th and 18th. A ticket pre-sale begins tomorrow, March 12th, at 9 AM PST, with tickets going on sale to the general public on Friday and Saturday, March 15th and 16th. The band is currently wrapping up their spring headlining tour, after which they will be heading to Latin America for a bit. This non-stop tour schedule has no doubt contributed to the quartet’s success, which includes nominations for for three GRAMMY awards and Gold certification for Boys & Girls.
