The Marcus King Band has announced that they will support Tedeschi Trucks Band and The Drive-By Truckers on the "Wheels Of Soul" 2018 tour. Hailed by audiences and critics as "a champion of the summer concert season" (Cincinnati.com) and "a musically pure and soulful night of music" (Atlanta Journal Constitution), the annual summer series is loved for its incredible musicianship, stage collaborations, and unpredictable set lists. Find a full list of tour dates below.
Trucks and Tedeschi are looking forward to the unique southern flavor that The Drive-By Truckers and The Marcus King Band will bring to this year's tour. In King, Trucks is reminded of his early days as a talented guitar player plugging away on the road. "It's been fun getting to know Marcus and watching him develop. He sat with us at the Beacon and it will be great to have a chance to collaborate more on stage over the summer". Trucks and King also collaborated on The Marcus King Band's self-titled 2016 album release, for which Trucks performed on "Self-Hatred".
King writes, "Two years ago I saw Doyle Bramhall II, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings and Tedeschi Trucks Band in Charlotte, NC. I felt the electricity of the show through every part of me and I said, we need to be a part of this tour. It's a blessing to be part of the energy this year!"
Tickets for the "Wheels of Soul" tour will be available for pre-sale starting tomorrow, January 9th at 10am local time and on-sale to the public for most cities this Friday, January 12th.
