Winter Blues: ZZ Ward announces 2018 tour, including February ‘Dise date

Here in New England, we have an unfortunate history of having to cancel or postpone shows when blizzards roll into town and render the roads (and MBTA) useless. In ZZ Ward’s case, however, the blues singer will be providing the mid-winter maelstrom that everyone is begging for on her upcoming “The Storm” tour next year.

After touring with Kaleo, Ward’s headlining tour in 2018 will tout her latest album, which dropped in June.

Ward released her 2018 North American tour dates yesterday (October 24), detailing a 25-stop trek that starts on January 20 in Salt Lake City and runs through March 11, where the tour caps off Los Angeles at the Fonda Theater. The tour includes a concert in Boston at the Paradise Rock Club on February 17 around the middle of the tour, and we can only hope the weather holds up.

The winter feels worlds away in our current pre-Halloween bliss, but tickets go on sale this Friday (October 27).
