This is his only scheduled New England stop this year
Laconia, N.H. (June 22, 2021) – Two “Night’s On Fire” at the Lakeport Opera House when hit-making country artist David Nail returns for one of his first live performances back on the road on the 140-year old stage July 2 and 3. As part of the Independence Day weekend, Nail, a critically-acclaimed singer, songwriter and recording artist, will make his only scheduled New England tour stop this year so far at the historic venue.
“I can’t wait to come to New England this summer,” said Nail who was nominated twice by the Academy of Country Music and by the Grammy Awards. “As a performer, coming to a place like the Lakeport Opera House is the perfect opportunity to allow guests to enjoy an intimate performance in a comfortable setting.”
Hailing from Missouri, Nail is well-respected up and down Nashville’s Music Row and with fans around the world. He’s written or co-written multiple hits with “Let It Rain” topping the Billboard Hot Country Song charts at No. 1 and “Whatever She’s Got” peaking at No. 2. Other top songs include “Nights On Fire” and “Red Light.”
Nail’s candor cuts like a laser through star-making propriety, a ritual of predictable answers to predictable questions, recited by artists averse to the controversy that truth can bring. His songs are honest as he evokes the demons with which he has wrestled through much of his life. Through dealing with his own bout of mental illness, Nail began making his most “organic” work to date, David Nail & The Well Ravens, with Jason Hall and Andrew Petroff.
Over the last nine years, he’s release five albums I’m About to Come Alive, The Sound of a Million Dreams, I’m A Fire, Fighter, which hit No. 3 in the Billboard Top Country Albums and his most recent with the Well Ravens named Only This and Nothing More.
With a 200-seat layout built for comfort, style and mobility, every seat in the house has unobstructed views, cocktail service and the best sounds system for an experience unlike anything else in the area. Over $1 million was invested in the Opera House renovation which opened on June 11 after being closed for 60 years. Originally built in 1882, this venue mixes modern design elements with historic charm for a unique cultural experience. The Opera House is home to live musical performances, theatre productions, comedians, magicians as well as being host to community-focused events, weddings, and private and corporate gatherings. Once a mainstay of Laconia’s Lakeport community, the Opera House is on center stage in New Hampshire’s Lakes Region.
Other scheduled performances include: A night of magic with Adam Wilber on June 25, Unforgettable Fire: U2 Tribute Band on June 26, Clay Cook of the Zac Brown Band on July 9 & 10, The Little Mermen a Disney Cover Band on July 11, Dancing Dream: ABBA Tribute on July 17, Billy Joel Tribute: David Clark’s Songs in the Attic on July 31, Steve Sweeney Comedy on August 5, Recycled Percussion on August 6 & 7 and medium Maureen Hancock on August 8.
