Indigo Girls Summer Tour To Take Them Across U.S.

Folk-rockers kick off summer trek in hometown of Atlanta.

Folk-rockers the Indigo Girls will spend this summer on the road, as usual.

The ever-touring folk-rock duo will wrap an acoustic outing May 13, just in time to kick off the newest round of shows with a two-night stand June 2–3 in their hometown of Atlanta, according to their label, Sony Music. The Indigo Girls will keep to the East Coast for most of June with stops in Philadelphia, New York and Toronto, then head west through Michigan, Illinois and Iowa.

They will hit the West Coast in mid-July, ending the trek with two nights at Los Angeles' House of Blues on July 27–28. An opening act has not been announced.

The Indigo Girls — Amy Ray and Emily Saliers — released their full-length debut, Strange Fire, in 1987. The following year they released their double-platinum, self-titled second album, which took home the Grammy for Best Contemporary Folk Recording in 1989.

Their seventh LP, Come On Now Social, released in September, adds a harder rock edge to the group's politically laced, harmony-rich bluegrass tunes, with songs such as "Go" (RealAudio excerpt), "Trouble" (RealAudio excerpt) and "Ozilline" (RealAudio excerpt), which features Ray's grandmother, Ozilline Walker.
