North Charleston Coliseum
The cumulative effects of years of constant touring and the commensurate building of a loyal base one fan at a time have begun to pay off big for Grace Potter & the Nocturnals. During the most recent leg of their Roar Tour, these road warriors, who have grown into a formidable live band during a near-decade of crisscrossing the country, consistently sold out shows, having to add multiple nights in several cities to meet the demand. The tour, which will continue through September and include at stop at North Charleston Performing Arts Center on September 28th, is quickly turning into one of the summer’s hottest tickets. “This is the final leg, and we’re gonna go out with a f—in’ bang,” Grace promises.
GPN’s headlining dates, interspersed with runs of shows with their friends Dave Matthews Band and the Avett Brothers, will be bookended by a series of what promise to be memorable concerts with bona fide Hall of Famers. Robert Plant has selected the band to accompany him and his group the Sensational Space Shifters on a West Coast swing starting June 26 at the Shrine in L.A., and in September they’ll join the Allman Brothers Band for multiple dates on the East Coast.
“We’ve toured with Dave all the way back to our early days, and we just came back from a European tour with the Avetts,” Grace points out. “We’ve collaborated extensively with Derek and Warren [Trucks and Haynes, respectively, who do double duty in the Allman Brothers band and their own groups] over the years. These are our friends—people we’ve continued to circle with—and we’re all still at it.”
The band will come full circle when they return to their home state of Vermont for the third edition of GPN’s own festival, Grand Point North, in Burlington on Sept. 14-15. Haynes’ Govt Mule, Trombone Shorty & Orleans Avenue , Charles Bradley and His Extraordinaires, City and Colour, Felice Brothers and Shovels & Rope and are among the acts confirmed for what promises to be another glorious end-of-summer weekend on the shores of Lake Champlain.
