Live at the Lyric: Squirrel Nut Zippers First Annual Christmas Caravan Tour
December 1, 2017 @ 8:00 pm - 10:30 pm
September 5, 2017 – This Winter you’ll have an excellent new reason to round up the kids, adults and grandparents for the holidays. The Squirrel Nut Zippers are embarking on their first ever holiday tour – The First Annual Christmas Caravan tour.
The ten-city tour starts in Memphis, TN on November 30th and will make stops in Birmingham, Pensacola, Atlanta, Nashville, Asheville, Charlotte, Jacksonville, St. Petersburg and Orlando. Tickets for all shows will go on sale this Friday.
“Zipsters, we’re excited to be spreading our holiday cheer with you all this winter,” remarked band leader Jimbo Mathus. “We’ll be playing selections from our old Christmas Caravan album, holiday hits and of course the finest Squirrel Nut Zippers music for you all. It’s gonna be a blast.”
It was back in 1998 when the Squirrel Nut Zippers released their first and only Holiday album titled Christmas Caravan which went on to sell a quarter of a million copies and reached #12 on the Billboard Holiday Albums chart.
Since reactivating in mid-2016 the Squirrel Nut Zippers have been performing to packed houses across the country and around the world. As Jimbo Mathus has said since the band’s re-launch, ‘it’s not a reunion, it’s a revival.’
The Squirrel Nut Zippers are currently in the studio putting the finishing touches on a new album to be released in 2018. It will be their first in seventeen years.
