Anderson East, Foy Vance Team Up for 2020 12 Rounds Tour
East and Vance's 2020 12 Rounds Tour will begin on Feb. 19, in Knoxville, Tenn. The two will "share the stage, swap songs, cover each other's tunes and likely hurl a friendly insult or two," a press release explains, during the 19-date trek, which will conclude on March 15 in Cincinnati, Ohio.
East and Vance first met backstage at the Edmonton Folk Festival, over a decade ago, "and I always thought, if I ever got a chance to do something with him I’d love to make it happen,” Vance explains. East recently got to thinking, "I’d love to do something outside of my normal wheelhouse, be a bit more creative, strip it back a bit,” and when he came to Vance with the idea, Vance was immediately on board.
Tickets for East and Vance's 2020 12 Rounds Tour will go on sale to the general public on Friday (Dec. 6) at 10AM local time. Pre-sale tickets will be available starting on Wednesday (Dec. 4). Visit 12RoundsTour.com for full details.
In 2019, East released a live album, Alive in Tennessee, recorded at the Ryman Auditorium; his most recent studio album, Encore, arrived in 2018. Vance, meanwhile, released two new album, From Muscle Shoals and To Memphis, this year. The records were recorded at Muscle Shoals, Ala.'s FAME Studios and Memphis, Tenn.'s Sun Studios, respectively.
