Ed Roland & Kevin Griffin tour as Southern Gentlemen

, Staff

Ed Roland of Collective Soul and Kevin Griffin of Better Than Ezra will team for a special co-headlining tour this fall. Dubbed the “Southern Gentlemen” tour, the two will make their way to Boston for a show at the Paradise Rock Club on Monday, October 24. Tickets for the show are now on sale through Ticketmaster for $18.

On the tour, which will make a dozen stops around the country, the duo plan to showcase a different side of themselves by delivering an intimate acoustic performance. Plans for the tour started after the pair got together to perform a few acoustic shows for BMI, a major music performing rights society of which both artists are members. The shows were so well received that they soon had the idea to give the arrangement a name and take it on the road. For a taste of what to expect, check out the video below.

Collective Soul’s last studio album was a 2009 self-titled release, while Better Than Ezra’s last release was 2009’s Paper Empire.
