Sturgill Simpson's recent slogan, "Who the Fuck Is Sturgill Simpson?," may ring false now. The singer-songwriter just announced dates for his 2020 A Good Look'n Tour, which will be stopping in Denver in the spring.
To fans of his latest album, Sound & Fury, and an accompanying Netflix film, he has a message: “We are a live band. Everyone knows we are a live band. Steal the record or give it away, just come to the shows."
The tour opens on February 21 in Birmingham, Alabama, and wraps up on May 24 in Louisville, Kentucky. The Denver show will take place at the Pepsi Center on Saturday, April 25.
"In an effort to fight against scalpers and ensure tickets get into the hands of fans, the tour has partnered with Ticketmaster’s Verified Fan platform," according to a statement from concert promoter AEG. "Fans can gain first access to tickets by registering for the Verified Fan presale now through Sunday, November 3, at 10 p.m. local at https://verifiedfan.ticketmaster.com/sturgillsimpson. Registered fans who receive a code will have access to purchase tickets before the general public beginning Tuesday, November 5, at 10 a.m. local time."
