Bonnie Raitt Announces Fall Dates
The tour is named after her 17th studio album, which was released in February.
Fans will want to pay close attention to the ticketing information at the bottom of this post. After all, Raitt has sold out much of her North American tour to date.
The Patriot Ledger’s review of her March 29 Boston show confirms that you’d be lucky to be in the audience.
“It is always a special event when Bonnie Raitt comes home to play Boston, but Tuesday night’s love-fest at the Orpheum Theater was exceptional even by that standard. By the time Raitt and her backing quartet left the stage after two hours of music from all phases and eras of her career, the capacity crowd of 2,500 fans was roaring in its eighth standing ovation.”
