It is very rare these days that Colter Wall makes live public appearances. Aside from headlining the Dusty Boots Festival in Denver earlier this summer and a performance at Under The Big Sky Fest in Montana to coincide with the release of his new album Little Songs, there has been no significant tour to speak of from Colter since COIVD, even with the new album to tour behind.
Colter Wall still won’t be doing any significant touring in 2023. But he has just announced 10 tour dates spanning October and December later this year, and in relatively intimate 1,500-3,000 capacity venues. Needless to say, demand for tickets will be sky high as some folks will be traveling from out of state to attend these shows. Red Shahan will offer support for all of the dates.
Colter Wall’s late 2023 tour dates include:
October 11 – Columbus, OH – KEMBA Live!
October 13 – Louisville, KY – The Louisville Palace
October 14 – Chicago, IL – The Salt Shed
October 15 – Detroit, MI – The Fillmore
October 18 – Omaha, NE – Steelhouse Omaha
October 20 – Minneapolis, MN – The Fillmore
October 21 – Madison, WI – The Sylvee
December 6 – Dallas, TX – Longhorn Ballroom
December 7 – Dallas, TX – Longhorn Ballroom
December 9 – Durant, OK – Choctaw Casino – Grand Ballroom
Tickets go on sale to the general public on Friday, August 11th at 10 am, but fans are strongly encouraged to sign up to Colter Wall’s mailing list to get access to pre-sales to begin on Wednesday, August 9th at 10 am local time. Promoter pre-sales will also go live on August 10th at 10 am. These shows will sell out, so if you want to see Colter Wall in the flesh, you must be on top of these dates.
Despite releasing some of the most traditional and obscure cowboy music possible, Colter Wall continues his upward trajectory. The new album Little Songs turned in career numbers for the Canadian Cowboy and Western singer, selling 12,000 equivalent album units in its first week when tabulating both streams and physical sales, putting Colter Wall at #1 on the Billboard Emerging Artists Chart, as well as #75 on the all-genre Billboard 200—his best showing to date.
Along with rarely playing live shows, Colter Wall doesn’t speak to the press except in very rare circumstances. He continues to blow off mega podcaster Joe Rogan who has said numerous times he wants him on his show. Instead of going through the conventional channels, Colter Wall relies on the mystique of being an authentic cowboy that sometimes plays music to continue to garner attention via word of mouth.
