Art Alexakis to Bring His Songs & Stories Tour to House of Blues in June

Posted By on Tue, Feb 12, 2019 at 3:46 PM

Earlier today, singer-songwriter Art Alexakis, frontman of the multi-platinum rock band Everclear, announced the dates of an “intimate” and “collaborative” acoustic tour.

Chris Collingwood (Fountains of Wayne), Max Collins (Eve 6) and John Wozniak (Marcy Playground) will join Alexakis on what he’s calling the Songs and Stories tour.

The shows will also include a Q&A, special requests, and "come what may" banter.

The jaunt comes to House of Blues on June 6.

"I have been a huge fan of each of these artists for so long," says Alexakis in a press release about the tour. "Getting to showcase their singing and songwriting abilities in this way is going to be so special for all of us. These shows will still deliver a rock 'n' roll energy, but in a way that our fans have never experienced. We can't wait to have the opportunity to interact with our fans even more on this tour."

Alexakis, who has a new solo album in the works, will donate $1 per ticket sold at each show to Sweet Relief Musicians Fund, an organization that provides financial assistance to musicians, venue workers, production staff and crew members uffering from injury, illness or disability. Funds raised from the tour will pay for medical procedures, doctor visits, prescriptions and living expenses.

Tickets for the show go on sale on Friday.
