Father John Misty To Embark On 2018 World Tour
GRAMMY-nominated indie/folk iconoclast Father John Misty has announced an extended world tour in support of his new album Gods Favorite Customer, due out June 1.
The title and release date for God's Favorite Customer was previously leaked in an apparent accidental move by Amazon France, igniting speculation over the new project in advance of an official word from Tillman or his label. Tillman has since confirmed the official title and release date, releasing two additional singles, "Just Dumb Enough To Try" and "Disappointing Diamonds Are The Rarest Of Them All," as follow-ups to lead single "Mr. Tillman."
Father John Misty – real name Joshua Tillman – will be bringing a large and exciting stable of support acts along for the ride on his North American tour dates, including TV On The Radio, Jenny Lewis, Gillian Welch, Blitzen Trapper, Bully, King Tuff, and Lucy Dacus.
Tillman's world tour in support of God's Favorite Customer will kick off on May 11 in Bloomington, Ind., with a solo show at a Kurt Vonnegut-themed mini-festival before skipping across the pond to Belfast, Ireland, on May 25 to kick of the nearly 40-show run in earnest. The tour will run through Nov. 18, where it will wrap up in Lausanne, Switzerland.
Limited pre-sale tickets for most show dates will become available on Tues., May 8, and will go on-sale for the general public on Fri., May 11. Full tour details and ticketing info can be found on Tillman's official website.
