Lyle Lovett maps fall headlining shows
After tackling his upcoming fall outing with John Hiatt, Lyle Lovett will head out for a slate of headlining shows with his Large Band in tow.
The veteran performer and multiple-Grammy-winner will kick off the headlining stretch Oct. 26 in Orange, TX, following his latest run with Hiatt, which kicks off Oct. 6 in Albuquerque, NM, and closes with an Oct. 18 show in Tacoma, WA.
The headlining trek will take Lovett through late November, winding up with a Nov. 24-25 engagement in Fort Worth, TX. Details are included below.
Lovett, who has been on the tour trail sporadically since January, released his most recent album, “It’s Not Big It’s Large,” in 2007. The 12-track set–which features the performer’s Large Band on a variety of country, blues, folk, jazz and gospel songs–peaked at No. 18 on The Billboard 200.
“We’ve always done arrangements that border on blues music, that border on jazz arrangements, that border on what folks might think of as ‘big band,’ but we don’t really play big band music,” Lovett said of the album’s title in a promotional video clip posted at “But we’ve always had a lot of people in the band, so that’s why I call the band the ‘Large Band’ and not the ‘Big Band.’ But invariably people refer to the band as the ‘Big Band’ and … it’s not big … you get the idea.”
“Its Not Big It’s Large” follows Lovett’s Lost Highway Records debut, “My Baby Don’t Tolerate,” which surfaced in 2003. That set marked his first collection of original material since 1996’s “Road to Ensenada.”
