Fifteen years after the release of Too Far to Care (and several before the album’s alt-country sound gained recognition as a legitimate genre), the Old 97’s are once again singing its songs. The seminal band is dusting off its stage spurs and Care‘s old tracks for an anniversary tour commemorating the album’s debut way back in – naturally – 1997.

Each show throughout the three-month tour will see the group performing Care in its entirety. Rhett Miller, Old 97’s frontman and a solo musician in his own right, will also open the nights’ sets with an acoustic performance, presumably of newer tracks off his most recent LP, The Dreamer.

Old 97’s anniversary tour will kick off in familiar country territory August 24th in Dallas, Texas. To see if the crooning rockers will be stopping by your area (and if you have the means to catch them as they do), scroll below for complete tour and ticket info:
