It’s a good time to be a live music lover in Fayetteville.
The Walmart AMP has already begun announcing dates for 2023, George’s has a ton in the works, and the Momentary announced their first show for next year earlier this week (The Roots!). On top of all that, new(ish) venue JJ’s Live has also been busy rolling out shows left and right in recent weeks.
JJ’s Live officials have announced several new dates for late 2022 and early 2023 that will no doubt excite live music lovers in Fayetteville and around the region.
Among the recent announcements are Fayetteville Roots Festival vets and Alabama-based soul band St. Paul and the Broken Bones, coming to town for an early 2023 date on Feb. 1.
Another Roots Festival veteran announced recently is last year’s headliners, bluegrass trio The Wood Brothers, who will be in town for a spring show on April 18.
Los Angeles indie-folk band Dawes will also be in town in the spring. They’ll be at the venue on April 11, and Minnesota indie act Hippo Campus are scheduled to perform May 20.
Alice in Chains guitarist and songwriter Jerry Cantrell will bring his solo act to the venue on March 5.
Irish rockers Flogging Molly will play on March 7 along with Anti-Flag and Skinny Lister.
A couple tribute shows are also in the works, with Bon Jovi tribute Slippery When Wet scheduled for Jan. 27, and the Red Not Chili Peppers (get it) coming to town Jan. 28.
This is in addition to previously announced shows, including Trombone Shorty (Nov. 17), Mike Ryan (Nov. 18), Trampled by Turtles (Dec. 8), and others.
