In addition to their March stint throughout the West Coast and South, Alabama Shakes are keeping busy with even more U.S. tour dates. They've just announced a slew of shows which kick off on May 10 at the Bottle Rock Festival in Napa, CA, and don't wrap up until July 28 when they play a show in Minneapolis, MN. In between, they'll perform at a ton of festivals - like Firefly Music Festival, Calgary Folk Festival and Forecastle Festival - as well as multiple nights in Los Angeles at the Hollywood Palladium. The real question is: When is this new "it" band going to show the East Coast some love?

Update: Grammy Awards
Add the Alabama Shakes to the list of artists and bands that will have a big night on February 10. That is the night of the Grammys. With 2 nominations - Best New Artist and Best Rock Performance - the band may take home some hardware that night.
In addition to sitting in the crowd awaiting if their name is to be called up on stage as a winner, they will perform as well - a testament to how big of a year they have had with the release of their debut album Boys & Girls. Lead singer and guitarist Brittany Howard will take part in a tribute to Levon Helm, appearing on stage with Elton John, Mumford & Sons, Zac Brown, Mavis Staples and T Bone Burnett.
The Alabama Shakes had a busy 2012, touring across the globe throughout the year in support of their album "Boys & Girls." The Athens, Alabama quartet reached gold status in the United Kingdom and had a peak chart position in the United States at #8 on the albums chart.
With dates in Australia, Brazil and Chile already booked during January, March and April respectively, the band has now announced a spring tour of West Coast and Southern cities in 2013.
Set to kick off on March 1 in Boise, the tour will include stops in Portland, Seattle, Oakland, Denver, Kansas City and New Orleans before wrapping up on March 16 in Jackson, Mississippi. Tickets for these new shows go on sale December 7 and the best deals for all Alabama Shakes tickets are right here at SeatGeek.
