Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit

Chartway Arena Price: $54, $79, $104

Broadberry Entertainment Group, in partnership with Chartway Arena, announcing Jason Isbell and the 400 Unit with support from Alejandro Escovedo at Chartway Arena on September 19, 2024. Doors open at 6:30 p.m. and the show will begin at 7:30 p.m.

Isbell is fresh off the release of his latest album, Weathervanes. The record features the rolling thunder of Isbell’s fearsome 400 Unit, who’ve earned a place in the rock ‘n’ roll cosmos alongside the greatest backing ensembles, as powerful and essential to the storytelling as The E Street Band or the Wailers. They make a big noise, as Isbell puts it, and he feels so comfortable letting them be a main prism through which much of the world hears his art. He can be private but with them behind him he transforms, and there is a version of himself that can only exist in their presence. When he plays a solo show, he is in charge of the entire complicated juggle. On stage with the 400 Unit, he can be a guitar hero when he wants, and a conductor when he wants, and a smiling fan of the majesty of his bandmates when he wants to hang back and listen to the sound.
