Chart-topping multi-platinum recording artist Josh Turner will return to the UK this summer as part of his “Long Black Train 20th Anniversary Tour”.
Following his triumphant inaugural tour over here in 2019, culminating in a headline slot at The Long Road Festival, this newly revealed date will see the South Carolina-born singer perform a one-off headline show at the Union Chapel in London on Thursday, July 13th 2023.
“I’m excited to share that we’ve added a UK show to the 20th Anniversary ‘Long Black Train’ Tour,” shares Turner. “I can’t wait to see y’all again!”
Tickets go on sale this morning at 10AM BST. For more information, visit JoshTurner.com.
On May 19th, Turner’s debut album ‘Long Black Train’ will be released on vinyl for the first time, to coincide with the anniversary of the title track’s original 2003 release date. The album, produced by Mark Wright and Frank Rogers, and single of the same name have been certified Platinum by the RIAA.
“I wrote this song during my senior year at Belmont University, and I remember thinking to myself, no-one is going to want to hear this old-timey gospel number. Thankfully, God placed a few folks in my life who thought differently, and here we are celebrating the 20th Anniversary of ‘Long Black Train’,” continues Turner. “I credit this song with landing me my first publishing deal, my record deal and my first Opry performance. A lot of folks think this was my first single, but it was actually my second. I was hesitant when the label suggested it be the next single, nothing else on the radio sounded like it, but I don’t know where I’d be today without this song, and so we named the tour for this 20th Anniversary, and we’ll be celebrating all year long.”
