Little Feat Share Video for New Original Song, Announce Fan-Curated “By Request Tour”
In November, Little Feat will return to the road, as the band charges into its 52nd year. The group has confirmed two legs of the “By Request Tour,” the first will open in November with nine northeast dates, followed by seven southern shows in January 2022. These performances will feature the group’s current roster, with Bill Payne, Kenny Gradney, Sam Clayton and Fred Tackett now joined by Scott Sharrard (Gregg Allman Band) and Tony Leone (Olabelle, Chris Robinson Brotherhood, Midnight Ramble Band).
The group is enlisting fan assistance for the songs and setlists on this tour, with the details to follow at Littlefeat.net. On September 20, Little Feat will appear together live for the first time in nearly two years during a Nashville livestream, which will be followed by a full-band Q & A session.
In anticipation of all that is to follow, Little Feat will release a new single “When All Boats Rise.” Today we are premiering the official video for the song, which offers an optimistic take on where we all stand. The credits for the song and video, appear below, along with the group’s confirmed tour dates.
