Phil Vassar, is bringing his 20 years of hits to venues across the
country with an intimate, acoustic show in 14 cities from coast to coast
(more dates to be added, full list below). Brett Sheroky will
be supporting Vassar on select shows throughout the tour. The Stripped
Down tour coincides with an EP launch by the same name, and features new
material, exciting artists collaborations, and “Postmarked Birmingham”
(written by Vassar with Don Sampson & originally recorded by
BlackHawk). Tickets go on sale August 16 at PhilVassar.com and the EP will be available January 2020.
“We’re peeling back the music to the core with just a piano and guitar,
so we can give fans an intimate evening of conversation and music. It’s
how these songs were written and I think it will be a fun, unique
experience,” Vassar shared.
2019 marks 20 years since the release of Vassar’s debut single
“Carlene,” which became a bonafide hit. Vassar recently performed
“Carlene” along with a set list of fan-favorites on “Fox & Friends All-American Summer Concert Series.” Vassar brought his Hitseria tour through New York and is continuing to play dates across the country (Hitsteria tour dates below).
