Steve Earle must have told his band some pretty good things about Prince George, because he’s coming back, and this time he’s bringing the Dukes with him.
Steve Earle and the Dukes will be playing Vanier Hall on June 26 for one night only. This is the first time Earle and the Dukes have played the city.
When Earle was recently here, the show sold out quickly, and this one is likely to do the same.
Earle first gained notice in the music business as a songwriter, penning hits for artists like Johnny Cash, Emmylou Harris, Travis Tritt, The Pretenders and Joan Baez. In 1986, he decided to try singing his own stuff, and his debut, Guitar Town, shot to number one on the charts.
Since then, Earle has refused to be pigeonholed for musical style, releasing country-rock like Copperhead Road, minimalist music like Train A-Comin and the politically charged Jerusalem.
Tickets to see Steve Earle and the Dukes at 8 p.m. on June 26 at Vanier Hall go on ale April 4 at 10 a.m. at all Ticketmaster locations.
