Brent Cobb & Nikki Lane Announce Co-Headlining Soap Box Derby Tour
The tour takes its name from “Soap Box,” a track included on Cobb’s 2020 studio album, Keep ‘Em On They Toes, featuring backing vocals from Lane. Brent and Nikki kick off the trek at Chicago’s Thalia Hall on August 20. The pair conclude August with performances in Indianapolis, Louisville, Lexington, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, Philadelphia, Brooklyn, Boston and Washington D.C.
Brent Cobb and Nikki Lane play The Jefferson Theatre in Charlottesville, Virginia on September 1. From there, the tour hits Isle Of Palms, South Carolina; Wilmington, North Carolina; Asheville, North Carolina; Columbia, South Carolina and Charlotte, North Carolina. The tour ends in Georgia with stops in Athens on September 8 and Atlanta on September 9.
“We all ought to want to be Nikki Lane when we grow up. She’s just a boss at anything she does. So, when the idea for the first full band tour since the pandemic came up, there was no one else I could imagine sharing the moment with,” Cobb said. “I suppose we’re cut from a similar cloth and that family feeling amongst the crowd is what I’m looking the most forward to at these shows. It’s gonna be something really special.”
“I liken sharing a stage or a song with Brent Cobb to a holiday meal. It’s something so familiar, but you just don’t get to do it often enough,” added Lane. “We’re from the same neck of the woods, as they say. When we get together, we know how to have a good time, and we put on a good show. But that don’t mean we might not just go off the rails for a moment. Cause we’re swapping whiskey and tequila, telling stories and talking shit – and there’s just no tellin’ what might happen.”
Tickets for all shows go on sale this Thursday, June 17 at 10 a.m. local time.
