While the June leg has shows ranging from California to New York, word from the Tedeschi Trucks Band is that the yet to be announced second leg will include more performances east of the Mississippi.

Meanwhile, Susan Tedeschi recently teased the possibility that various shows might include a collaboration or two.

“Sharon is really soulful and sweet and we know a lot of the Dap-King guys through different projects,” Tedeschi said.  “There’s a lot to look forward to and who knows – maybe we’ll all get up and play together.  The wheels of creativity are turning at all times; it should be fun and could be epic.”
