The first leg of the tour kicks off October 5th at the Brady Theatre in Tulsa, Okla., and will make stops in Missouri, Michigan, Ohio, Pennsylvania, Vermont and Maine before it wraps up at Boston’s Orpheum Theatre October 23rd.

The second leg starts November 2nd at Milwaukee’s Eagles Ballroom and works its way through Illinois, Minnesota, Nebraska, Colorado, Oregon and Washington before wrapping up at the Orange Country Performing Arts Center in Costa Mesa, Calif., November 22nd.

Dates and venues for a third leg starting in late November are in process of being nailed down.

Since the release of Silver Lining in 2002 and its resulting world tour, Raitt has kept busy with other projects, including benefit concerts like last year’s “Vote For Change” tour. But the blues rocker also dealt with the death of both her parents less than a year apart and her brother’s diagnosis with brain cancer, which has since gone into remission.

On the recording of Souls Alike, Raitt said, “This record was a matter of stretching and not repeating myself.

“Some of the songs are clearly terrain that people have come to know and appreciate from me, but the rest are about finding some new direction and something new to say.”
