Grace Potter has announced a major 2020 North American headlining tour in support of her forthcoming album Daylight, due out October 25, 2019 via Fantasy Records. The tour will come to the historic, nonprofit Florida Theatre on January 15 at 8pm. Tickets go on sale Friday, September 27, and can be purchased by calling the Box Office at 904.355.ART(2787) or at floridahtheatre.com.
An acclaimed songwriter and electrifying performer, Potter has been described by Spin as "one of the greatest living voices in rock today." Over the course of her career, the Burlington, VT native has commanded stages around the world including Coachella, Lollapalooza, Bonnaroo, Rock in Rio and her own thriving music festival, Burlington's Grand Point North, which just celebrated its ninth year.
The major touring throughout 2020 will support the release of Daylight, her first new album in four years. Produced by her husband Eric Valentine, (Keith Urban, Gwen Stefani, Maroon 5) Daylight is a soul-inflected, deeply personal collection of songs that capture a particularly tumultuous period in her life - from the breakup of her band and a divorce - to more joyful events like a new marriage and the birth of her first child.
Grace wrote the album’s 11 tracks with the help of renowned songwriter Mike Busbee (Pink, Maren Morris) who co-wrote “Everyday Love,” “Release,” and the powerful first single "Love Is Love," which PASTE asserted is "the kind of song that’ll stop you dead in your tracks.” Longtime collaborators Benny Yurco and Matt Musty contribute guitar and drums respectively with Benmont Tench and Larry Goldings on keys as well as Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig from Lucius providing background vocals.
In addition to “Love Is Love,” Potter recently released another brand-new track from the album called “Back To Me,” which ESQUIRE in a feature length profile called “a triumphant soul-burner.”
Every pair of tickets purchased for the tour will include a digital download or CD copy of the new album Daylight. Fans will also have the opportunity to purchase a “Daylight Experience” VIP package which includes one premium reserved ticket or general admission ticket with early entry, access to a private 3-song pre-show performance by Grace, one limited edition screen printed tour poster autographed by Grace, one bottle of Grace’s Midnight Gold Maple Syrup (certified Vermont organic), and a merchandise shopping opportunity before doors open to the public. The “Daylight Experience” will be available here when tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, September 27: https://www.cidentertainment.com/events/grace-potter-tour.
