For Immediate Release
December 5, 2017
Nashville singer-songwriter Tony Lucca is set to hit the road in 2018 opening for Jonny Lang on a tour throughout the Midwest and Southeast (see below for full tour schedule.) The tour dates begin in St. Charles, IL, in January, and eventually wind up in Des Moines, IA in March. Tickets for these shows are on-sale now.
Says Lucca about the tour plans: “Touring with Jonny Lang promises to be one of the highlights of my career. Having been a fan for 20+ years now, I can easily say that Jonny is one of the most impressive live performers of my generation. Getting to share the stage with him each night will no doubt help elevate my own craft.”
Over the summer, Lucca kicked off an ongoing residency in Nashville with a series of four free shows at The Country (110 28th Avenue North, Nashville). Billed as “Tony Lucca and Friends,” the residency was an opportunity for Lucca to work on some new material for a forthcoming album, which he will begin recording in Spring of 2018. The shows were such a huge success that the venue asked Lucca to continue the series, and he has had monthly shows throughout the fall there. After taking a break for the month of December, Lucca will be back at The Country for residency shows on January 10th and February 14th with guests Josh Williams, Tom Beaupre, and JD Eicher. Special guests for past shows have included Davis Naish, Josh Dorr, Adam James, Marshall Altman, Gabe Dixon, Drew Smith, Michael August, Mando Saenz, Whiskey Wolves of the West, Keaton Simons, Matt Brown, Ernie Halter, Brennin, Curtis Peoples, Ethan Hulse, Ernie Halter, Barrett Baber, and others.
In 2016 and 2017, Lucca focused on songwriting, his catalog development and promotion (two EPs of material from a previously recorded session at the legendary Sun Studio [in Memphis] and another session he’d done in Muscle Shoals, AL in 2006), as well as select touring with the likes of Alex Dezen (of The Damnwells), Tyrone Wells, and Christian Lopez. In 2016, he also celebrated the 10th anniversary of his album, Canyon Songs, with a very special show at 3rd & Lindsley in Nashville. At the show, he performed the album in its entirety track-for-track, as well as a second set of Lucca classics from over the years.
