John Prine Announces 2019 World Tour

John Prine has announced an extensive slate of 2019 tour dates behind his latest album The Tree of Forgiveness. The 72-year-old will play 39 shows between February and December with stops in New Zealand, Australia, the U.S., Canada, Europe, and the U.K. This adds to Prine’s previously announced four-day festival scheduled for November in the Dominican Republic.

Prine also received three Grammy nominations this morning. The Tree of Forgiveness, Prine’s first LP of original material in 13 years, was nominated for Best Americana Album, and its songs “Summer’s End” and “Knockin’ On Your Screen Door” are up for Best American Roots Song. The honors come one month after Prine was nominated for the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame. You can read our review of his album here.

Tyler Childers will accompany Prine’s New Zealand and Australia run, while I’m With Her and Kathleen Edwards will open select U.S. dates. Tickets for the tour go on sale December 14 and can be purchased via Prine’s website. View the full 2019 schedule below.
