Eric Hutchinson, the musician responsible for bringing you hits such as “OK, It’s Alright With Me” and “Rock and Roll,” has announced dates for “The Almost Solo Tour.” The tour begins on October 15 in San Francisco, CA, and spans all of North America, hitting up cities such as Omaha, NE; Pontiac, MI; Londonderry, NH; and Burlington, VT. The tour also includes three New York City dates, two of which will be at Joe’s Pub. Things wrap up on November 4 in Baltimore, MD.
On the road, Hutchinson will be joined by longtime band member, Elliot Blaufuss, and special guest Jessie Payo. The tour announcement comes on the heels of Hutchinson’s 50-date U.S. headlining run, only this time around fans can expect a more up-close-and personal experience. The shows will all be performed acoustically, with the audience seated close to the stage for a more intimate evening.
Hutchinson has been performing music since 2003, but was thrust into the limelight after gossip blogger Perez Hilton promoted his album, Sounds Like This, on his website in 2007. After that it was off to the races for the Maryland native, and in May of 2008 he was signed to Warner Bros. Records. Hutchinson has released four full-length albums. His most recent, Moving Up Living Down, debuted earlier this year.
