Rufus Wainwright and José González have announced a co-headlining US tour for fall of 2021. The “Unfollow the Rules in the Local Valley Tour” is named for Wainwright’s 2020 album Unfollow the Rules as well as González’s upcoming LP Local Valley.
The two indie songwriters will join forces on September 20th in Kansas City, Missouri. Over the course of their 10-date trek they’ll visit a couple of the usual suspects — Boston, New York, Washington DC — but they’ll spend the majority of their time in midwestern cities both heralded (Chicago, Detroit) and lesser known (Carmel, Glenside).
Tickets go on sale Friday, May 7th, with some fan pre-orders starting tomorrow through Wainwright’s website. Afterwards, keep an eye out for tickets here. González’s Local Valley arrives September 17th and pre-orders are ongoing.
