Lyle Lovett performs during the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival at the Fair Grounds May 3.

Lyle Lovett will return to the stage in late January for his first live shows since the pandemic began. The acoustic tour features more than two dozen gigs in theatres and performing art centers throughout the Southeastern U.S. 

The beloved country/Americana singer-songwriter will be joined by his acoustic group featuring Viktor Krauss on bass, Luke Bulla on violin, Josh Swift on dobro on vocals, and multi-instrumentalist Jeff White on guitar, mandolin, and vocals. 
The tour promises to feature an “up close, living-room listening experience,” with a setlist that includes stripped-down arrangements of classics from Lovett’s catalogue and a preview of tunes from his upcoming album due out in May on Verve Records, according to a release via American Songwriter.    
In March, Lovett will release a 30th anniversary edition of his album Joshua Judges Ruth on vinyl.   
“It doesn’t seem possible that was 30 years ago,” Lovett said in a statement, via “I never dreamed in 1976 when I was 18 and first started performing that in 2022 I’d still be able to do something for a living I love this much. It’s thanks to the people who keep showing up, who keep buying my records and who’ve supported my livestreams during the pandemic. I’m grateful to them, and I want to do my best for them every time.”
The 2022 tour includes multiple nights at The Birchmere in Alexandria, Va.; Bilheimer Capitol Theatre in Clearwater, Fla.; The Lyric Theatre in Birmingham, Ala.; and The Majestic Theatre in Dallas. Check out the routing below.
