From Andrew Sandoval’s Facebook Page:

I am pleased to share with you that for the first time since 1970, Michael Nesmith will return to the Troubadour in Los Angeles to perform his First National Band country-rock masterworks.

It is one of two Southern California shows (the first is at the Coach House) and tickets go onsale this Friday. I am sure many others will post today about this and each will have unique details. For me personally, this is the music of Michael’s that I always come back to – revelatory, heartfelt and transcendent. The albums – Magnetic South, Loose Salute, Nevada Fighter, Hits Keeps Coming, Ranch Stash & Tantamount – are brimming with brilliance.

Those of you who have followed his story know that “Papa Nes” became Nez, and went in new directions after this phase of his solo career. For these shows he will at long last call back to these records with full-blown country-rock backing and I am so excited to hear the results. Get your tickets Friday – no other shows are scheduled or set for announcement – this is it!
