Nickel Creek Announce Spring 2023 Headlining Tour Dates
Beloved bluegrass trio Nickel Creek will embark on their first headlining tour in nine years this spring.
Members Chris Thile, Sara Watkins and Sean Watkins will kick off their 2023 trek with a stop in Cincinnati's Andrew J Brady Music Center on April 15. They'll continue the tour through mid-June, stopping at theaters, clubs and music halls across the U.S., including The Fillmore in Philadelphia and The Eastern in Atlanta, before wrapping things up at Kansas City's Kauffman Center for the Performing Arts.
Select dates will feature opening sets from multi-talented Guatemalan artist Gaby Moreno, folk singer-songwriter and I'm With Her band member Aoife O'Donovan and the buzzed-about acoustic supergroup Hawktail. Additional concert dates are expected to be added in the coming weeks.
Nickel Creek will hit the road in support of their highly anticipated comeback record Celebrants, due out March 24 on Thirty Tigers. The project features 18 new tracks recorded at Nashville's historic RCA Studio A and will make their first LP in nine years. In April, the band will celebrate their new career chapter with three sold-out performances at Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.
Tickets for their newly announced headlining dates, listed below, will go on sale this Friday, Feb. 10, at 10 AM local time. A special pre-sale for general admission and VIP packages will begin tomorrow, Feb. 8 at 10 AM local time. You can find additional information on ticketing options at Nickel Creek's official website.
