Live & Unpeeled, The Acoustic Tour will include a stripped down sound from Cage the Elephant along with a string quartet. Inspiration for the specialty tour came after they performed at a Neil Young’s annual benefit show in 2016. “After our recent acoustic performance at the Bridge School Benefit, we wanted to share this intimate experience with our fans and take it on the road,” guitarist Brad Shultz said. “We plan to add in a string quartet to make it really cool.”

Tickets go on sale Friday, March 10th at 12:00 pm local time. For more information, check out Cage the Elephant’s website and see the full list of dates below.
