Robert Earl Keen’s Farewell Tour

Robert Earl Keen announced that a tour this year would be his last

Keen has been a touring juggernaut for nearly 40 years

While his brilliant story songs have found international audiences

Keen almost single-handedly built a model for songwriters to make a living with shows in Texas

Much as I love what I do, it's more important that I do it well or not at all. I'm not sick or experiencing any existential crisis

I feel that making a decision and quitting the road while I still love it is the way I want to leave it

 I promised myself I'd go out feeling all the love for music and performing the same way when I entered: with passion and enthusiasm

Tickets for the show go on sale at 10 a.m. on June 10
