Soul icon Al Green has announced a short run of shows, marking his first tour in seven years.
Kicking off this 4th April, Green will play five venues in Irving, Austin, Houston, New Orleans, and Atlanta.
On select dates, Green will be supported by Tank and the Bangas and the War and Treaty.
The 72-year-old singer’s last full-length release was 2008’s Lay It Down, but he made a brief step back into the limelight last September, when he dropped his rendition of the soul deep cut ‘Before the Next Teardrop Falls’, his first song in a decade.
Tickets will go on sale Friday, 8th February at 10:00 a.m.
