Little Feat have announced their Spring 2022 tour in celebration of the 45th anniversary of their legendary LP Waiting for Columbus. On the heels of their November “By Request” tour, Little Feat will return to the road for a 21-city-tour where they’ll replicate the album in its entirety at every stop.

Waiting for Columbus was originally recorded during seven live performances in 1977 when the band brought along a recording team to four shows in London and three in Washington D.C.

Little Feat will feature Bill Payne (keyboard, vocals), Kenny Gradney (bass), Sam Clayton (percussion, vocals), Fred Tackett (guitar, vocals), Scott Sharrard (guitar, vocals) and Tony Leone (drums). 

Fans can look forward to hearing extended extemporizations of “Fat Man in the Bathtub,” “Spanish Moon,” “Dixie Chicken” and “Feats Don’t Fail Me Now” when Little Feat hit the road on March 4.

VIP pre-sale begins Oct. 20 and general sale kicks off Friday Oct. 22.
