Singer-songwriter Nick Perri is joining southern rock band Blackberry Smoke for a series of live dates.
Perry is scheduled to join the band for four dates next month on its live drive-in concert run. Perry will serve as support on the tour from Sept. 10-15 beginning Sept. 10 in Roanoke, VA. From there, he will join the band in Butler, PA; Scranton, PA and Yarmouth, MA.
Perri’s run with Blackberry Smoke is noted below.
Thurs Sept 10 – Dr Pepper Park – Roanoke, VA
Sat Sept 12 – Starlight Drive-In – Butler, PA
Sun Sept 13 – Circle Drive-In – Scranton, PA
Tues Sept 15 – Yarmouth Drive-In on Cape Cod – Yarmouth, MA
Perri talked about joining Blackberry Smoke during a recent interview.
“I’m thrilled to be headed back on the road, to continue sharing the experience of live music, and most of all excited to be doing it with my dear friends in Blackberry Smoke- who I love and admire so much”, said Perri. “Especially in a time like this, I think live music plays an important role in uniting and up-lifting.”
“For a variety of reasons, the Trio version of this band makes the most sense on this run,” added Perri. “I’m really excited to strip things back and offer an alternative experience to what we do with the full six-piece band.”
The Nick Perri Trio will consist of Perri on lead vocals and guitar, Brian Weaver on bass, and Zil Fessler on drums.
Perri’s upcoming dates with Blackberry Smoke are just his latest performing at drive-in dates. He and his band The Underground Thieves joined The Struts early this month for a pair of drive-in shows in Philadelphia and Butler, PA.
Nick Perri and The underground Thieves released its debut album Sun Via Aug. 14. The album peaked at #6 on the Top 10 US Rock Albums iTunes chart. The album is available here.
