News: JD McPherson Announces Headline Tour2 min read
(AUS) Known for his classic sound rooted in rock and roll, rhythm and blues, and rockabilly, JD McPherson is set to play five razor sharp shows in support of his latest highly acclaimed album, ‘Let The Good Times Roll’, backed by his longtime four-piece band featuring Jimmy Sutton on upright bass, Jason Smay on drums, Ray Jacildo on keys and Doug Corcoran on saxophone, guitar and keys.
With an impressive touring ledger that has seen McPherson crisscross the US on headline tours and open for such acts as Robert Plant, Dave Matthews Band, Nick Lowe and Eric Church, tickets for these east coast dates will go on sale at midday on Friday September 4.
Telstra Thanks is bringing an exciting 48-hour pre-sale just for Telstra customers from 12pm Monday August 31 until 12pm Wednesday September 2. For more information on how to purchase, visit: telstra.com/music. My Live Nation members can also be among the first to secure tickets during the pre-sale beginning at 2pm on Wednesday September 2.
Produced by Mark Neill (The Black Keys’ Brothers, Old 97s, Los Straitjackets) along with McPherson, ‘Let The Good Times Roll’ is in his own words: “is full of big, bombastic sounds; lots of guitars, and tons of percussion.”
From the Eddie Cochran influenced title track to ‘Bridge Builder’ – the ballad co-written with Dan Auerbach – to the more punk inspired sounds of the current single ‘Head Over Heels’, this latest album (out now through Universal Music Australia) is a foot-stomping, ass-shaking thing of beauty.
This new music follows McPherson’s widely praised 2012 debut, ‘Signs and Signifiers’, a scorching rock ‘n’ roll record that introduced him to the music world and had the likes of MOJO magazine calling it “…an utterly irresistible, slicked-back triumph.”
