Steve Earle is on the road again

June 23, 2008  |  7:58am
After a February/March tour earlier this year, Steve Earle is hitting the road again. He started with a UK show on June 10, and he'll be globetrotting all the way up to September 26, just about a month shy of election day. Coincidence? Considering his penchant for politics, we think not. Then again, he might just be hankerin' for the open road.

His last four shows will be at Judson Memorial Church, a fitting venue for the "hardcore troubadour," as the church has always welcomed artists and progressive ideas with open arms.

Well known for his political activism, Earle has caused quite a bit of controversy over the past few years, most notably with his albums The Revolution Starts...Now and Jerusalem, both highly critical of the current political situation.
