Chris Carrabba Announces 1st Dashboard Confessional Tour Since His Accident


The coronavirus pandemic wasn't the only thing impacting Dashboard Confessional's touring plans for the year. As many fans will remember, last June, Chris Carrabba was involved in a serious motorcycle accident that left him relearning how to use his arms and hands.

Thankfully, it seems like his skills have come back. On Monday (May 17), the band just announced its first tour since his accident and the pandemic. 

Carrabba will be stripping things down for the Unplugged Tour 2021, and it's sure to be special. 

The tour will be hitting over 35 cities starting September 9 in New Orleans and wrapping up November 5 in Nashville. Stops along the way include New York City, Cleveland, Tulsa, Omaha, Seattle, and more.

In 2020, Dashboard Confessional was trekking across the U.S. for its 20th-anniversary tour which was interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic forcing the band to cancel a large portion of dates. 

The band will be joined by a handful of opening acts throughout the tour — depending on the date, audiences will see someone different — including This Wild Life, Into It. Over it., Seahaven, and Armon Jay.

Carrabba has spent many months following the pandemic recovering from his life-threatening accident and has kept fans updated on his progress. After being worried he'd never play music again, the singer held a special live stream on Valentine's Day 2021, just eight months after his accident. 

Dashboard's Artist Presale is going on now, and public ticket sales start this Friday (May 21) at 10 am local time. Click here for more information and to buy tickets.
