Nathaniel Rateliff & the Night Sweats keep getting bigger and bigger. With the confirmation of tour dates with Kings of Leon (assuming that the band doesn't get sick or find another reason to cancel, which makes its fans mercilessly irate), Rateliff has leaped from playing small bars overseas to large venues and festivals.
He's performed on The Late Show With Stephen Colbert, Jimmy Kimmel Live, CONAN and The Late Late Show With James Corden. His album has sold more than 640,000 copies. His earnest, catchy, neo-soul song "S.O.B." played on radio stations nationwide and graced many ads.
The joint tour starts in July and ends in August.
Below are the dates:
July 26 Saratoga Springs, NY Saratoga Performing Arts Center
July 28 Mansfield, MA Xfinity Center
July 29 Uncasville, CT Mohegan Sun Arena
August 1 Wantagh, NY Nikon at Jones Beach Theatre
August 2 Darien Center, NY Darien Lake Performing Arts Center
August 5 Syracuse NY Lakeview Amphitheater
