Matt Nathanson plots headlining tour

, Staff

Fresh off an opening slot on Sugarland’s tour and before heading out with Maroon 5 and Train, Matt Nathanson has announced plans for headlining tour of his own this fall. The Massachusetts native will bring his “All Night Noise” tour back to Boston for a homecoming show on Saturday, October 8. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $25 to $39.50, are now on sale now through Live Nation.

Nathanson is touring in support of his brand new album, Modern Love. After the success of his 2007 breakthrough album Some Mad Hope and its top ten single “Come On Get Higher”, expectations for Nathanson’s followup album soared. Taking his first break from touring in 15 years, the singer-songwriter put together the 11-song with friend and collaborator Mark Weinberg, taking more risks and stretching himself musically in the process.

“That was a sexy song and it connected, people got it,” said Nathanson about his smash hit “Come On Get Higher” in a press release. “So we started with the idea of keeping a groove steady the whole way through a song. I wanted things to breathe and hang off these songs in a way that defied the fact that they were written on an acoustic guitar.”

Powered by lead single “Faster”, Modern Love debuted and #17 on the Billboard 200 after its release last month, his highest album chart debut to date. The new album also contains a “Run”, a collaboration with Jennifer Nettles and Kristian Bush of Sugarland.
