John Prine Tickets for Sale
John Prine is a man with a cult-like following, drawing from older listeners who first heard his insightful and at times hilarious takes on life on albums and those younger listeners actively engaged by the folk revival movement. He continues to tour despite the shift from his nasal Chicago vocals to a gravelly nostalgic tone of an old man who has survived a battle with the cancer of the throat. Now John Prine tickets unite this eclectic crowd through the December 2012.
His return is not one of a semi-retired soul with a momentary taste for live performances. Prine is back out on the road to celebrate the re-release of a number of his most memorable material on the Singing Mailman Delivers. Deliver he does, as these songs do not lose a bit of bite with age. He has some new company with RB Morris, Gretchen Peters, Willie Watson, Sarah Jarosz, and Justin Townes Earle, the artists hoping to be embraced by those folk enthusiasts arriving to revel in the work of a master.
Prine is indeed a master songwriter. If this was chess and musicians were judged by skill and not record sales, John would certainly be among the Grand Master Champions of the world. Alas, it is not and the subjective medium has relied on the likes of Kris Kristofferson and Bob Dylan to sing the praise of a songwriter Kristofferson once joked he would have to break his thumbs to compete with. Now singers young and old with an appreciation for the folksy story telling of a man with enough good humor to take on Jesus’s missing years and to take the stage with John Hiatt and Iris Dement to regale the fans with Sweet Revenge, Clay Pigeons, and In Spite of Ourselves.
So, join the throngs of those who know and enjoy the musings of a man who has inspired groups like My Morning Jacket, the Old Crow Medicine Show, the Drive-by Truckers, and the Avett Brothers. He is not strictly country or folk. He is all storytelling and John Prine concert tickets are a rare opportunity to see his steady hand and folksy vocals deliver a set with incalculable charm.
