Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats will headline their first local arena when they play St. Paul’s Xcel Energy Center on Nov. 2.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. June 7 through Ticketmaster. Citi cardholders have access to a presale that runs from 10 a.m. June 4 through 10 p.m. June 6. Neither the venue nor the promoter announced ticket prices. Gregory Alan Isakov opens.

A native of rural Missouri, Nathaniel Rateliff spent the early days of his career as a solo act, recording a pair of well-received folk albums, including 2010’s “In Memory of Loss.”

In 2015, he returned to action with a new band and and a retro soul sound and album, “Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats.” The first single, “S.O.B.,” turned into a surprise breakthrough hit that got even more attention after Jimmy Fallon heard it, fell in love and booked Rateliff and his band on “The Tonight Show.”

Rateliff and the band went on to release two more acclaimed albums and, in 2020, Rateliff issued his third solo album, “And It’s Still Alright.” His fourth record with the Night Sweats, “South of Here,” is due out June 28.

“This album is a look into my own struggle with anxiety, insecurity and stories of my life,” Rateliff said in a news release. “(Producer Brad Cook) encouraged me to take responsibility for my own narrative in the songs and to write about what’s happening in my own life. These recordings were done together in a room with my closest friends. I hope these songs and stories give you an opportunity to better understand your own struggles whatever they may be.”

Nathaniel Rateliff and the Night Sweats have a long history of performing live in the metro, including Rock the Garden in 2016 and 2022, three shows at Surly Brewing Festival Field and a 2020 campaign rally for Bernie Sanders in St. Paul.
