Blues Traveler Reveal Additional Fall Dates for 35th Anniversary Tour
Blues Traveler will roll into fall with additional dates for the band’s 35th Anniversary Tour, which has already reached thousands of enthusiastic fans since launching back in March. The six-time platinum rockers will be performing selections from their latest Grammy-nominated album Traveler’s Blues as well as songs spanning more than three decades and 14 hit albums, including the iconic four.
The fall tour kicks off September 27 for a previously postponed date at College Street Music Hall in New Haven, CT. Blues Traveler will stay in Connecticut for a second show on September 29 at Jonathan Edwards Winery in North Stonington before making their way down the East Coast, including stops in Bensalem, Pennsylvania on September 30, Pound Ridge, New York on October 1, and Montclair, New Jersey on October 4.
The band then heads south for another makeup date in Roanoke, Virginia on October 5 and a show in Charles Town, West Virginia on October 7. They’ll take a detour to Ohio for two dates in Kent on October 8 and Warren on October 9 before turning south again for concerts in Asheville, North Carolina on October 11; Athens, Georgia on October 14; Hilton Head, South Carolina on October 15; Birmingham, Alabama on October 20; Fairhope, Alabama on October 21; and Ridgeland, Mississippi on October 22. They’ll wrap it up with one last postponed date in Charleston, South Carolina on October 24.
Besides chart-topping hits like the Grammy award-winning “Run-Around,” “Hook,” and “But Anyway,” fans will be treated to the group’s blues-drenched takes on some of their favorite classic blues songs originally recorded by artists such as Aretha Franklin, Freddie King, Big Mama Thornton, and Little Willie John.
“Blues Traveler is not just a band; it’s a lifestyle,” said guitarist Chan Kinchla in a statement. “Blues Traveler is our life’s work. It’s enabled us to do so many other things. This little tribe we built in New York during the late eighties has survived all the way through—plus or minus some dearly departed brothers and sisters. It’s empowered us to be creative, make people happy, and travel around spreading some good vibes. The longer we do it, the more we like it. Now, thanks to our latest album, people know we can actually play the fucking blues, too.”
Tickets go on sale on Friday, July 22 at 10 a.m. ET with tickets from the previously postponed shows honored for the new dates. For more information and how to purchase tickets, click on the links below.
