Ray LaMontagne announces North American Just Passing Through acoustic tour

Twenty-five dates through the fall are scheduled

Grammy nominated singer/songwriter Ray LaMontagne announces tour dates for his 25-date North American Just Passing Through acoustic tour. John Stirratt of Wilco will accompany LaMontagne on bass throughout the tour. The tour will kick off on October 7th in Portland, ME and culminate on November 18th in Wilkes-Barre, PA. During the tour, LaMontagne will play New York City’s legendary Radio City Music Hall on October 10th. The performance marks LaMontagne’s return to the historic venue for the first time in ten years.

Tickets for the tour will be available to the general public on Friday, July 20th at noon local time via raylamontagne.com with artist and Spotify pre-sales available.

On his last acoustic tour, critics across the US were raving about his performance. The Milwaukee Journal Sentinel said, “Ray LaMontagne’s voice and its raspy, yet smooth tones paired with the simplistic live acoustics awakened the senses and made you feel … good. He gave you honest music filled with raw feeling, and it was amazing,” while The Cincinnati Inquirer claimed, “a Ray LaMontagne concert is like this: intimate and personal, as if you’ve infringed upon a private performance session.” Consequence of Sound said, “Hearing Ray LaMontagne perform live is a poignant and magical experience,” while The Boston Herald raved, “LaMontagne’s voice remains a marvel, quiet and reflective one minute and forceful and impassioned the next. It really is an amazing instrument.”

In May, LaMontagne released his seventh studio album Part of the Light via NPR said, “With ambitious acoustic ’70s-style sounds, LaMontagne’s warmth radiates on a record that expands on what we’ve come to expect from the singer-songwriter,” and that LaMontagne is “in this incredibly inspired period in his career right now.”

The first single “Such A Simple Thing” is currently in the Top 10 on BDS’ AAA chart. He performed the track on ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel Live and BBC Two’s LATER…with Jools Holland and the track was featured in the season finale of ABC’s Grey’s Anatomy.
