Ray LaMontagne has revealed plans to embark on a solo acoustic tour this fall. The singer-songwriter and New England native will perform at Boston’s Orpheum Theatre on Friday, November 23. Tickets for the show, which range in price from $35 to $55, will go on sale Friday at 10 a.m. through Ticketmaster. The show is being billed as “An Evening with Ray LaMontagne” and will not feature a support act.

Along with the series of solo shows, LaMontagne will perform at the “Love for Levon” benefit concert celebrating the life and music of Levon Helm at the Izod Center in East Rutherford, New Jersey on October 3. He’ll also perform at the 26th annual Bridge School Benefit Concert in Mountain View, California on October 20 and 21.

LaMontagne’s last offering of new material was 2010’s God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise. The album, his fourth studio effort, was released under Ray LaMontagne and the Pariah Dogs, marking his first release with a band. It was awarded Best Contemporary Folk Album at the 2011 Grammy Awards and also garnered nominations in the coveted Song of The Year category for “Beg Steal or Borrow” as well as Best Engineered Album.

Most recently, LaMontagne teamed up with Dana Bourgeois to release a limited edition Bourgeois guitar called The Ray LaMontagne Limited Edition Signature Series.
