Steve Earle and the Dukes Announce Summer Tour Dates

Steve Earle and the Dukes have announced a slew of tour dates that will put them back on the road this summer. The trek kicks off July 1st at Gruene Hall in New Braunfels, Texas.

With 37 dates announced so far, Earle’s tour will take his group through Texas to Missouri, Kentucky, and beyond, with stops including St. Louis, Lexington, and a two-night engagement at the Birchmere in Alexandria, Virginia. In August, Earle and the Dukes will join up with Los Lobos to play several venues, including Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium and Atlanta’s Botantical Garden. Earle will fly solo in October, leading a trio of shows in New York and Wisconsin.

In addition to the tour announcement, Earle released a new live performance video of “The Saint of Lost Causes.” It’s an appropriately moody, grungy rendition, with detuned guitars bumping up against weeping, droning fiddle and steel. Earle’s version of the song appears on the 2021 release J.T., an album of his son Justin Townes Earle’s songs recorded after the younger Earle’s death in 2020. Proceeds from the sales of J.T. go into a trust for Justin Townes Earle’s daughter Etta St. James Earle.
