“A digest of her proven strengths: For every bittersweet ballad, there’s a steamrollering groove.” — Nate Chinen, New York Times
Dates and ticket on-sales for Bonnie Raitt’s ‘Dig In Deep’ tour have been announced in full detail below with the first round of fan pre-sales and general on-sales beginning shortly. With more than half of her Spring Tour dates already sold out, Raitt returns to cities across the country where she has long been seen as one of music’s great entertainers, including Boston, Philadelphia, Austin, Seattle, and Portland, amongst others. She’ll be at the Melody Tent this summer on August 23rd!
Raitt will be joined by her longtime touring band: James “Hutch” Hutchinson (bass), Ricky Fataar (drums), and George Marinelli (guitar), along with Mike Finnigan (keyboards).
Bonnie Raitt’s new album Dig In Deep (Redwing Records) was released to critical acclaim on February 26th, with Hal Horowitz from American Songwriter calling it a “distinguished and near perfect entry into a classy, bulging catalog that has seen few missteps.” Of Raitt’s singing and playing, Randy Lewis of the LA Times said Dig In Deep is masterful in “highlighting her sultry, sandpapery vocals and down-and-dirty electric guitar work.” The Oakland Press’ Gary Graff said “Raitt is breathing fire, as sharp and potent vocally as she’s ever been and still wicked with her guitar slide,” while Thom Jurek of AllMusic said “Raitt is now in full control of her career, delivering consistently great music as a result.”
Bonnie Raitt will make her television debut for Dig In Deep on The Ellen DeGeneres Show today (March 3rd), followed by The View on March 9th.
