Bonnie Raitt Extends 2022 North American Tour
Fans of Bonnie Raitt rejoice as the singer extends her 2022 North American tour!
Previously announced dates features the rock band NRBQ and Lucinda Williams, and now that shows are added, another featured artist is included on the list. Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Mavis Staples is joining the leg for the new schedule this summer.
Raitt will hit the road this year for the first time since 2019 in support of her upcoming album “Just Like That…” The tour kicks off on March 28 in Modesto, Calif., with special guest Maia Sharp. NRBQ will open the April dates and Lucinda Williams to open the May and June shows. And lastly, Staples is set to open the newly announced concerts in July, August and September.
The singer has also announced a set of shows in October and November, but no opening act is mentioned yet. Most of the dates with Staples are currently on pre-sale, with a public sale starting Feb. 18 at 1PM ET. Ticket information and full show details are available on Raitt’s website.
Raitt said in a statement:
“To celebrate finally being able to play live concerts again by reuniting with my dear friend and inspiration, the great Mavis Staples, is a thrill words can’t really express.”
It’s been six years since Raitt’s last album, Dig in Deep, which topped Billboard’s blues and folk charts and reached No.11 on the Billboard 200. The release date for her upcoming album “Just Like That…” hasn’t been announced yet.
