Dwight Yoakam to tour

 GRAMMY Award-winning artist Dwight Yoakam will headline the renowned Hollywood Palladium on September 6, 2013. The Lone Bellow, one of the most talked about new bands this year, is set to open. "I'm very much looking forward to playing the 3 Pearstour in my adopted hometown at such a great and historic venue, the Hollywood Palladium, whose storied reputation--from the Academy Awards to legendary musical performances--was kept intact and paid tribute to by its complete restoration and reopening for live shows,” said Yoakam, who is currently touring in support of country’s most critically-acclaimed album of 2012, 3 Pears. “On September 6th, we are going to turn it into the rockin'est honky tonk on Sunset Blvd."

Tickets for the Hollywood Palladium show go on sale Friday, June 28 at 10 AM at www.LiveNation.com.
Yoakam kicked off 2013 in style with an electrifying performance of “A Heart Like Mine” January 2 on NBC’s “Tonight Show with Jay Leno.” He also appeared on CNN’s “Piers Morgan Tonight” January 23 and on “Imus In The Morning” (where he performed four songs from 3 Pears) January 21.  Look for Dwight to tour throughout 2013 with dates through December (full list of tour dates below).

Spending a record breaking eight weeks at the top of the Americana Charts, the most of any album, with his critically-acclaimed album 3 Pears, Yoakam dominated Best Of 2012 Lists, including NPR, Rolling Stone, Entertainment Weekly and American Songwriter, among others. As well, 3 Pears marks Yoakam’s 26th studio album and his highest-charting “Billboard 200” debut.
