Marty Stuart Announces New 2018 Headlining Dates


This morning, five time GRAMMY-winner Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives announce new headlining dates in 2018. On the heels of his tour with Chris Stapleton, Stuart will perform throughout January and February in cities including Folsom, Berkeley, Phoenix, West Hollywood, Houston, & Dallas (full dates below). Tickets for these new dates will go on sale on November 10th at 10:00am Local Time and will be available here.

Two tiers of VIP packages will also be available in select markets on this tour:

  • The Big Chief Special, which includes a front row ticket, a commemorative limited-edition show poster and a VIP lanyard, and a photo with Marty and the band, taken by the tour photographer. Fans purchasing this package will also have access to a private pre-show performance and Q&A at the venue, and autograph session with Marty and band.
  • The Hummingbyrd Bonanza, includes one ticket in the second, third, or fourth rows, admission to the pre-show performance and Q&A, and the commemorative limited-edition show poster and a VIP lanyard. Both tiers of the VIP package will have access to crowd-free merchandise shopping.

Recently Stuart and his band debuted the music video for “Time Don’t Wait,” off their recent album Way Out West, which was shot in the Badlands and Black Hills of South Dakota on the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation. This piece, directed by Reid Long, explores the lands and people of the Lakota Sioux tribe, of which Stuart is an honorary member (his Lakota name is O Yate’ o Chee Ya’ka Hopsila or “The man who helps the people”) and which he has had a deep and personal connection to since he first visited the Lako Dawesta’s Pine Ridge Reservation on tour as a member of Johnny Cash’s band. Said Stuart about the video: “Reid and his crew followed us to the Pine Ridge Indian Reservation in South Dakota and the results are absolutely exquisite. I invite the viewer to come along with me and the Superlatives to Pine Ridge. By way of Reid Long’s camera, we’ll take you deep inside of a world filled with wonderful people, that most people don’t even know exist.” Watch the video here.

Marty Stuart and his Fabulous Superlatives are currently on tour with Chris Stapleton and have remaining arena dates in Tampa, Jacksonville, Oklahoma City and Grand Rapids. Tickets for all these shows are on sale now and can be found here.

Stuart and his band recently won the award for “Duo/Group of the Year” at the Americana Music Association’s 16th Annual Americana Honors & Awards. Previous winners of this prestigious award include The Avett Brothers, Drive-By Truckers, and Emmylou Harris & Rodney Crowell. In 2005 the Americana Music Association awarded Marty Stuart with the Lifetime Achievement Award for Performance.

Marty Stuart released Way Out West on Superlatone earlier this year. The album was conceived as a love letter to the promised land of California by one of Country music’s living legends, who has played with everyone from Johnny Cash to Lester Flatt. NPR Music proclaims: “Way Out West is Marty Stuart’s album-length paean to the myth and magic of the American West. It finds country’s stalwart neo-traditionalist turning cosmic cowboy for a journey through the Joshua trees, shadowy canyons and desert dreams that tantalize travelers with the promise of a golden shore on the other side.” Way Out West is available on CD, vinyl, and digitally here.

Produced by Mike Campbell (Tom Petty and the Heartbreakers), and featuring the Fabulous Superlatives —guitarist Kenny Vaughan, drummer Harry Stinson and new member, bassist Chris Scruggs– Marty’s longtime band, which NPR Music said could “melt your heart with four-part harmonies, rock your bones with honky tonk, and dazzle you with picking worthy of their name,” Way Out West is a cinematic tour-de-force.

Marty Stuart is a five time GRAMMY-winner, platinum recording artist, Lifetime Achievement Award recipient from the Americana Music Association, Grand Ole Opry star, country music archivist, photographer, musician, and songwriter. Since starting out singing gospel as a child, Stuart has spent over four decades celebrating American roots music. His teenage years on tour with bluegrass legend Lester Flatt in the ’70s were followed by six years in Johnny Cash’s band in the ’80s, and a chart-topping tenure as a solo artist in the ’90s. Stuart hosts a Late Night Jam at The Ryman, a yearly tradition which kicks off the CMA Music Festival, with recent guests including Dolly Parton, Jerry Lee Lewis, Neko Case, Eric Church, Chris Stapleton, Maren Morris, Dan Auerbach and many more.
