Billy Strings 2022 Tour Announcement – US Tour Schedule
Billy Strings is currently performing across the country, and it’s a great time to see the millennial Americana singer. His next performance is June 23rd in Cary, NC, while these Billy Strings concerts continue through October 1st in Dana Point, CA.
That’s right; you have all through summer 2022 to catch a Billy Strings concert. Will you be heading to a special event like Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Willie Nelson’s Outlaw Music Festival, or a multi-night spectacular in Baltimore, MD, or Louisville, KY? Strings is celebrating the release of his fifth album, Renewal, with bluegrass beats in every city. We don’t know about you, but we can’t wait to head out to our favorite venue and see the 29-year-old put on the ultimate show.
As the album name suggests, Renewal marks a new chapter for Billy Strings (real name: William Apostol). It wasn’t easy to follow up on his 2019 record, Home, which earned the singer a Grammy for “Best Bluegrass Album.” However, the new record takes some inspiration from his past while mostly looking toward the future.
Renewal is an album that features surprisingly heavy subject matter over the mellow bluegrass beats. “Leaders” is a track about human rights, with the chorus exclaiming, “we’re not the leaders anymore, all our believers washed ashore, we’ve got to find another door.” Songs like “In the Morning Light” and “Love and Regret” are about love and relationships; meanwhile, and “Hide and Seek” is a heartbreaking and nearly 10-minute track that serves as a tribute to Strings’ late best friend.
Strings is leaving his hard-partying past behind and diving headfirst into a new era with Renewal, both personally and professionally. While his voice is stunning and serene, his guitar is his primary instrument, and he told NPR that he often thinks with his fingers. “I’m trying to talk with my hands. It’s very much like when I’m playing stuff like that; it’s just I’m trying to convey a sort of emotion or say something with my guitar,” he told the publication. “
A lot of my favorite guitar players, you know, they sound like they’re laughing or begging or crying,” he continued. “Or, you know, Jimi Hendrix used to make his guitar sound like the bombs in Vietnam. It’s a very amazing thing to be able to communicate with sounds without any words.” His fans certainly agree, and you can witness the magic of a Billy Strings concer all through summer 2022.
