I went to the Revival Tour three years ago without even really knowing who Chuck Ragan was. It was easily one of the most fun three hours I've spent at a concert.

If you have any interest in this style of music, I can't recommend this enough.

I went to it in Sydney. There were two shows, and the first sold out. I went to the second. Just 4 performers (Chuck, Frank Turner, Ben Nicholls from Lucero and Tim Barry) and about 10 audience members. Totally intimate and totally amazing.

I'm seeing Dave Hause again this year. He's great.
