Jason Isbell and his band, the 400 Unit, will headline a bill this summer in Bonner Springs that also includes the Turnpike Troubadours and Old 97’s.
The show comes to the Providence Medical Center Amphitheater on July 13, a Friday. Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Jan. 19. Prices: $39.50 to $75.
This will be the second time Isbell and his band have shared a bill with the Troubadours in Kansas City. They performed with American Aquarium at Crossroads KC in June 2013.
Isbell has been a frequent visitor to Kansas City. In 2017, he performed here twice: at the Uptown Theater in May, as part of the Middle of the Map Fest; and at the Midland theater in March, when he joined his wife, Amanda Shires, who opened for (and performed with) headliner John Prine. In 2015, Isbell performed twice at the Uptown, in February and December. In July 2014, he opened for Willie Nelson and Alison Krauss at Starlight.
Never miss a local story.
Isbell is up for two Grammys at this year’s award show: for best Americana album, “The Nashville Sound”; and for best American roots song, “If We Were Vampires.”
The Turnpike Troubadours will be making their third headlining appearance here since July 2016, when they sold out a show at the Uptown Theater that also included the Old 97’s. They sold out the Uptown again in July 2017.
