Jim Chapin; Dan Burn-FortiIt looks like Ian McLagan will be a very busy musician for the rest of the year. The famed Faces and Small Faces keyboardist, who currently is out on a U.S. headlining tour in support of his latest solo album, United States, has been tapped to be a support act for most of the shows on Nick Lowe‘s forthcoming holiday trek.

Lowe’s outing will promote the veteran singer/songwriter’s 2013 Christmas album, Quality Street: A Seasonal Selection for All the Family. The 13-date stateside tour is scheduled to run from a December 3 show Minneapolis through a December 20 concert in Brooklyn, New York. The gigs will feature Lowe playing a mix of his classic songs alongside various holiday-themed tunes.

So far, McLagan is only confirmed to appear at five of the announced shows, but is expected to join the bill at more stops. Meanwhile, Ian has eight upcoming concerts of his own. His itinerary runs from a show Saturday night in New Haven, Connecticut, through a November 20 visit to The Woodlands, Texas. At all of these dates, McLagan will be accompanied by bassist Jon Notarthomas of his longtime backing group The Bump Band.
