“Yellowstone” star Kevin Costner is far more than just an actor. He’s also a writer, producer, and director. And he can sing!

In summary, there isn’t a whole lot Kevin Costner can’t do. When he’s starring in our favorite series, “Yellowstone”, Kevin Costner can be found fronting his band Modern West. In fact, he’s been rocking with the band since their first tour in 2007. Kevin Costner and Modern West traveled the world playing shows in places including Istanbul and Rome. They also performed at the NASCAR Sprint Cup Series races at Daytona International Speedway and Lowe’s Motor Speedway in Concord, North Carolina.

The group’s latest album, Tales from Yellowstone features 16 tracks about the characters from the show. And now, “Yellowstone” fans can hear it all live and in person. Kevin Costner and Modern West are going on tour! But there are only eight stops on the tour, so you’ll want to get your travel plans ready.

The group recently shared a photo on Instagram with a list of the tour stops. Along with the image, they wrote, “Big news…we’re hitting the road! The band and I are so excited to be playing the #TalesFromYellowstone album live.”

Kevin Costner and Modern West will be stopping in Ardmore, OK, New Braunfels, TX, Crockett, TX, Kansas City, MO, Fort Worth, TX, Grand Island, NE, St. Paul, MN, and Decatur IL. The tour begins on August 24th and ends on September 4th.

What Is Kevin Costner’s Album ‘Tales From Yellowstone’ All About?

During an interview in 2020, Kevin Costner shared the story behind Modern West’s latest album.

“It’s really a concept record,” said Costner. “Sometimes there are songs that aren’t really necessarily about John Dutton. I have my own muse when I’m away from home, for when I’m making a movie, and there are songs that kind of blend in and also complement what’s happening.”

One song also shares a theme with “Yellowstone.” “Feeling Like the Last Time” is about the last time Kevin Costner ever said goodbye to his dad after a hunting trip. He felt a surge of love and sadness in the moment, something John Dutton shares a lot with his kids on “Yellowstone.”

“I’d done that with him since I was a little boy and he told me when we say goodbye at the airport that this will be the last time. And as he was telling me that, there was some security person yelling at us to get our car off the curb, when we were trying to say goodbye to each other,” said Costner. “I was looking at this man that had raised me, and all I could see when I looked at that security guy was the whistle in his mouth. And he was talking, but I couldn’t hear his voice. I could just see my dad. He said, ‘We’ll never do this again.’ So I just kept my eyes on him. And eventually, he had to go and I had to get on the airplane. And he was right. So I started writing about that on the plane.”
