Following the highly-anticipated release of her twentieth album, Dig In Deep (Feb 26, Redwing Records), Bonnie Raitt will kick off her 2016 North American Tour which includes a stop at the Santa Barbara Bowl on Friday, July 29 at 7:00 PM.
Bonnie's Dig In Deep Tour will feature her longtime touring band, which backs her on the forthcoming album, including James Hutch Hutchinson (bass), Ricky Fataar (drums), and George Marinelli (guitar), along with Mike Finnigan (keyboards), who joined the line-up for the triumphant 2012-2013 Slipstream tour.
So much of the album is focused on what I want to do live, she says. I write and pick these songs so we can nail them on stage.
Since the release of 2012's GRAMMY Award-winning album Slipstream, Bonnie has performed over 200 shows in the U.S. and abroad, including a sold-out concert at Boston's Fenway Park with James Taylor this past summer. Her powerful chemistry with this band creates a magic that has been described as exquisite (Chicago Tribune) and perfect (Boston Globe).
Continuing a long-standing tradition in conjunction with the Guacamole Fund, Bonnie will donate one dollar from every ticket purchased to grassroots local, regional, and national organizations whose work focuses on safe and sustainable energy, social justice and human rights, environmental protection, and blues/music education.
