After multiple sell-outs for their cross-country acoustic run, GRAMMY-nominated rock band NEEDTOBREATHE have announced a third leg of their intimate Acoustic Live Tour. The new dates, which feature Nashville singer-songwriter Trent Dabbs, extend the band’s trek in support of their first-ever acoustic live album, Acoustic Live Vol. 1. Leg Three of the Acoustic Live Tour kicks off April 30th in Roanoke, Virginia, taking the band through an extensive tour of the Northeast U.S., Canada, and wraps up May 25th in Ft Worth, Texas.
Public on-sale for the Salt Lake City engagement is Friday, February 15th at 10am. Tickets will be available online at Live-at-the-Eccles.com, calling 801-355-2787 or visiting the Eccles Theater Box Office (Mon-Fri 10am-6pm & Sat 10am-2pm). The George S. and Dolores Doré Eccles Theater is located at 131 Main Street in Salt Lake City.
“We’re blown away by the fan response to the ‘Acoustic Live Tour’ thus far and thrilled to be adding more dates across the U.S. this Spring. We’re especially glad to be returning to Canada for a few shows… playing our acoustic show there for the first time ever,” said Bear Rinehart of NEEDTOBREATHE.
Acoustic Live Vol. 1 was entirely self-recorded last year across the band’s first-ever fully acoustic tour and features commentary between tracks that transports listeners directly into the audience. One of the numerous standout moments featured on the record include the band’s retelling of their first meeting with friends Drew & Ellie Holcomb, followed by a surprise appearance by the duo at NEEDTOBREATHE’s sold-out performance at the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville.
The 12 song collection was produced solely by NEEDTOBREATHE and mixed/mastered by the band’s own Seth Bolt (backing vocals, bass) at his Plantation Studios in Charleston, S.C.
Acoustic Live Vol. 1 represents over a decade of music from five of the band’s six studio albums and is a true compilation of some of NEEDTOBREATHE’s greatest hits prior to entering the studio to record their seventh studio effort.
NEEDTOBREATHE is a GRAMMY-nominated rock band hailing from South Carolina, comprised of brothers Bear Rinehart (vocals, guitar) and Bo Rinehart (guitar, vocals), Seth Bolt (bass, vocals), and Josh Lovelace (keys, vocals). Their most recent album H A R D L O V E released in 2016 and debuted at #1 on the Billboard Top Albums, Top Current Albums, Top Rock Albums and Top Alternative Albums charts and #2 on the Billboard 200, their greatest debut yet. H A R D L O V E is the follow-up to 2014’s Rivers In the Wasteland, which debuted at #3 overall on the Billboard 200 and spawned the RIAA-certified Gold single “Brother (feat. Gavin DeGraw).” The hit earned the group their first GRAMMY nomination as well as a pair of Billboard Music Award nominations.
NEEDTOBREATHE, well known for the aggressive touring schedule and impressive live show, celebrated four consecutive sold out shows at Red Rocks Amphitheatre, as well as sell outs at Greek Theatre (Los Angeles), Ascend Amphitheatre (Nashville), Aragon Ballroom (Chicago), Verizon Theatre (DFW) and more. NEEDTOBREATHE recently released their 4-track EP Forever On Your Side (Niles City Sound Sessions) – which includes the single “Forever On Your Side (with JOHNNYSWIM)” – debuted their first ever fully acoustic album – Acoustic Live Vol. 1– in November of 2018.
