Leif Vollebekk hasn't been able to tour properly behind his late-2019 album New Ways, but he's finally making up for that with a strong of international dates stretching from fall 2021 through spring 2022.

The outing kicks off at home in Canada this year, first with a solo show in Quebec City in October and then with appearances throughout Western Canada in November. Come February 2022, he'll play a few dates in Quebec and Ontario before heading to the U.S. He'll then travel overseas to Europe in April and May.

All told, Vollebekk has 54 upcoming shows, 11 of which are here in Canada. See the schedule below.

He said in a statement, "I had to pinch myself when they told me we were going back on tour. All that comes to mind are the timeless words Willie Nelson: 'Just can't wait to get on the road again / The life I love is making music with my friends.'"
