The 35+ date tour, presented by AEG Presents, will kick off February 21, 2020 in Birmingham, AL and travel to cities such as New York, Chicago, San Francisco, Boston and Lexingto before concluding May 24, 2020 in Louisville, KY. Acclaimed country breakout star and very special guest, Tyler Childers, will join Simpson on the tour for a once-in-a-lifetime live show experience.

Simpson’s live performances and album have been met with fan and critical praise alike:
“A PROUDLY REBELLIOUS RECORD .” – Los Angeles Times
“Sound and Fury begins much in the same way as Simpson’s recent live set: with AN EXPLORATORY PSYCH-BLUES JAM …As a guitarist, Simpson is uninterested in conventional guitar god shredding; his playing is CURIOUS, FLUID AND FULL OF WONDER.” – Rolling Stone
“…he can glide between synth-rock, glam, dancefloor-fillers; songwriting is king in his world. It doesn’t matter if he’s playing a dreamy campfire song or a two-minute instrumental stomper. Simpson is the one dictating his sound…” – Pitchfork
“Anyone who says guitar music is dead hasn’t listened to the new Sturgill Simpson record.”
– Entertainment Weekly
“Sound & Fury is the best case for musicians using Netflix in wild ways…..THE YEAR’S MOST HYPNOTIZING LONGFORM MUSIC VIDEO.”
“The Sound & Fury closer is the BEST THING SIMPSON HAS EVER DONE ...It’s hard to imagine any other rock ’n’ roll show achieving anything like the same visceral power.”
“POWERHOUSE PERFORMANCE ... Simpson was here, in a cozy punk club, seeking a real connection, making a real change in the world.” – The Washington Post
