The Six-Time, Platinum Rockers Will Perform The Hits That Defined Their 36-Year Career Including Songs From Their Latest Grammy®-Nominated Album, Travelers Blue’s
On the heels of their successful 2022 35thAnniversary Tour, seminal six-time Platinum rockers Blues Traveler have announced a series of 2023 shows to coincide with the impending release of their Live and Acoustic: Fall of 1997limited edition, double EP (Spring 2023).
During the shows, the band will perform a bevy of songs spanning more than three decades and 14 hit albums –including the iconic four, which went six-times Platinum and spawned the definitive “Run-Around” (garnering their first Grammy®Award).
Audiences can also expect to hear the band’s Billboard-topping smash singles like “Hook” and “But Anyway,” as well as their new, jam-infused renditions of some of their favorite classic blues songs, originally recorded by artists such as Aretha Franklin, Freddie King, Big Mama Thornton, and Little Willie John.
Dave Wakeling once told me that every great band only has three really good albums. And true to form, The Beat decided to call it quits after their third album, Special Beat Service. Of course, that was not the last we would hear from the Beat boys.
Blues Traveler will also be promoting their forthcoming spring 2023 release of Live and Acoustic: Fall of 1997, which is a selection of highlights from the ensemble’s legendary tour 25-years-ago. The 25th-anniversary limited edition double LP will include unreleased,remastered material from the initial two-track soundboard recordings. Amongst the tracks on the upcoming drop are fan favorites and some of the band’s best-known material like “Run-Around,” “But Anyway” and “The Mountains Win Again,” interspersed with several deep cuts.
“This EXCLUSIVE limited-edition double LP is a selection of many of the highlights from our legendary 1997 fall tour that produced the only acoustic sets that the original line up of Blues Traveler, including our beloved friend and bassist, Bobby Sheehan ever played on tour,” said Guitarist Chan Kinchla. “These previously unheard and uncirculated tracks are remastered from the original 2-track soundboard recordings for the ultimate Blues Traveler live and acoustic experience.”
The tour that spawned the album came after the success of Blues Traveler’s October 1997 performance at Neil Young’s Bridge School benefit, where the band delivered two entirely acoustic shows. Inspired by the magic they created, the group integrated mini acoustic sets between their first and second electric frames during their 1997 Fall tour.
