Neal Francis’ upcoming tour dates include an Aug. 1 appearance at Lollapalooza in Chicago and a run of shows supporting Black Pumas including two nights at The Mission Ballroom in Denver Aug. 11-12. Francis previously supported Black Pumas in 2019, including two shows at The Independent in San Francisco Oct. 21-22 that sold 1,100 tickets and grossed $20,406, according to reports submitted to Pollstar‘s Boxoffice.

Walther and Greenwald will both be based in Austin, while Harrington is based in New York and Los Angeles and O’Connell is based in Chicago.  
“I am thrilled to be working with Joe Greenwald and Lindsey Walther again,” Matteson told Pollstar. “We had so many good years together at C3. I truly believe they are the best in the business at promotion and marketing.  It is also a great honor to have Olivia Harrington and Brendan O’Connell joining the Ten Atoms team. I’ve admired their work over the years and feel very fortunate to have such talented and thoughtful individuals working on behalf of our roster.”
