Drive-By Truckers

About The Event:

On September 11, 2001, Drive-By Truckers self-released Southern Rock Opera on their own tiny Soul Dump label, pressing 5000 copies of their third studio album with a tiny budget they raised by crowdsourcing (as it’s come to be known), raising the money online from fans turned investors. They ended up selling 10,000 copies independently without any sort of distribution, mostly sold at shows during the massive tour that they booked themselves. A tour that began with 75 shows in 90 days and that stretched well into the following year.

The success of the Southern Rock Opera Tour and the album that inspired it led to Drive-By Truckers getting proper management and being picked up by High Road Touring, who have been their agents ever since. The band signed their very first record deal with Lost Highway Records, who reissued the album in the summer of 2002 as the tour stretched to the end of the year. A trajectory that saw the band moving from small dive bars and sleeping on floors, to playing bigger rooms and theaters, and touring on a bus.

Southern Rock Opera became the first of a string of albums that has seen Drive-By Truckers morph and continue to thrive for nearly a quarter of a century. The critically acclaimed band is well known for its high energy and cathartic shows, as well as for a prolific string of albums that combine astute politics, Southern storytelling, and an eclectic approach to rock ‘n’ roll that has been played at thousands of shows on three continents.

Always restless and never a band keen on repeating itself, people have asked Drive-By Truckers for years about the possibility of another Southern Rock Opera Tour to no avail. DBT co-founder Mike Cooley, never one to mince words, has long responded that it should only be done when it could be performed “on ice!” Meanwhile, Southern Rock Opera has continued to sell, eventually recouping its original record deal, and often appearing on lists of the best albums of the 2000s.

Although the band still holds onto the dream of Southern Rock Opera On Ice, it’s no coincidence that 2024 is also an election year. Another year full of some of the same contentious issues that inspired much of the original album’s content. The Southern Rock Opera Revisited 2024 Tour will see Drive-By Truckers celebrating their milestone album, not as a relic of another time and place, but as a continued conversation about where we came from, and where we are headed in this crazy time in history that we currently reside in. As Drive-By Truckers say in the album’s pivotal “The Southern Thing” – “It ain’t about the past.”
