Ray LaMontagne makes summer plans for the Pavilion

, Staff

Fresh off a Grammy Award win for Best Contemporary Folk Album, Ray LaMontagne has revealed plans for a summer tour with his band The Pariah Dogs. The Maine-based troubadour will return to the Bank of America Pavilion in Boston on Wednesday, June 1. Tickets, which range range in price from $30 to $50, will go on sale Saturday at 10 a.m. through Live Nation.

LaMontagne continues to tour in support of his latest release, 2010’s God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise. The album, his fourth studio effort, marks the first time that the singer/songwriter has defined himself within a band setting, rather than as a solo artist. Entirely self produced (for the first time) God Willin’ & the Creek Don’t Rise was recorded in two weeks at LaMontagne’s home in the woods of western Massachusetts.  After debuting at #3 on the Billboard 200, the album was powered by the success of the hit single “Beg Steal or Borrow”, which earned a Grammy Award nomination for Song of the Year. The “Pariah Dogs” consists of Jay Bellerose (drums), Jennifer Condos (bass), Eric Heywood (guitar) and Greg Leisz (pedal steel guitar).

Last summer, LaMontagne performed a pair of gigs at the Bank of America Pavilion as part of his co-headlining tour with David Gray.
