March 12, 2018 (Athens, GA) —Steve Earle and The Dukes are bringing their Copperhead Road 30th Anniversary Tour to the 440 Foundry Pavilion at The Classic Center on Tuesday, May 22.

Tickets to the show, featuring special guests The Mastersons, will go on sale Friday, March 16 at 10 a.m. and will range from $30-$45, plus applicable fees. A pre-sale for tickets will be available to members of The Classic Center Cultural Foundation on March 14 at 10 a.m. until March 15 at 4 p.m.


Earle will be performing Copperhead Road in its entirety and the live set will also include songs from his new album, So You Wanna Be An Outlaw, which Rolling Stone hailed as “an intensely raw and often delightfully clamorous nod to the fellow outliers the young Texan gravitated toward when he arrived in Nashville in 1974.” 


Copperhead Road is Earle’s third studio album and often referred to as his first “rock record.” The New York Times listed it as one of its recommended “Sounds Around Town” the week it was released and Time Magazine included it in their Critics Choice of the year. Rolling Stone has listed it as one of “50 Country Albums Every Rock Fan Should Own,” and said it “established Earle as country’s left-wing conscience.”
