Anderson East Keeps the Fire Burning: Webster Hall Photos + Winter Tour Dates

Anderson East finished a run opening for the Lone Bellow in typical fiery fashion before announcing a headlining tour for 2016 the next day.

Anderson East

City: New York
Venue: Webster Hall
Date: 2015-11-13

Anderson East has had a very successful 2015. He began the year on a stretch of dates opening up for Sturgill Simpson, released a new album Delilah and took it on tour, opened for Brandi Carlile in the summer and then took the road with the Lone Bellow in the fall. The Nashville based singer has been lumped into the "country" music genre but he's more than that. East possess a fiery, soulful Americana sound that really packs a wallop when he pushes his vocal chords to their limits.

At Webster Hall, the last stop with the Lone Bellow, East and his comrades were in fine form even as the crowd seemed more sparse than it should at a sold out show. This was the evening of the attacks in Paris after all and people may have felt more conscious about going out to a show. But hardcore fans made their pilgrimage -- from the photo pit, I could see at least one person submit to their fervor for East, throwing her head back and dancing wildly. She will probably be leading a batch of new converts to one of the headlining shows on East's winter tour.
