Little Feat Announces Fall Albums Tour

Article Contributed by Dennis McNally | Published on Tuesday, April 25, 2023

Little Feat returned to the road from the pandemic with a vengeance and a tour that Feat fans could help define by making requests.  They followed up with a tour celebrating their masterpiece, Waiting for Columbus.  Presently they’ve gone back to song lists that mixes classics and more obscure items.

And now, something special.  Today Rhino Records will announce the June 23rd release of special deluxe vinyl and CD re-issues of two outstanding early Feat albums – Sailin’ Shoes and Dixie Chicken, each with special extras.  Shoes will include a live show from 1971, while Chicken includes never-before-heard early versions of the songs from Boston in 1973.  We should note that 2023 is Dixie Chicken’s 50th anniversary.

To celebrate, Feat announces the Albums Tour.  Seven stops each with two shows; on the first night they’ll play Sailin’ Shoes in full, and the second, Dixie Chicken—along with, of course, a full selection of Feat fan favorites.

The pandemic only made their return to the stage sweeter, and Feat has been playing at a stunning level ever since.  These shows will be worthy of legend – don’t miss ‘em.

Little Feat is:  Bill Payne (keyboards, vocals), Kenny Gradney (bass), Sam Clayton (percussion and vocals), Fred Tackett (guitars and vocals), Scott Sharrard (guitars and vocals), and Tony Leone (drums and vocals).
