Tour Dates: Bonnie Raitt Slipstreams Into Touring

Thanks in part to her ubiquitous 1991 hit single Something To Talk About, Bonnie Raitt became one of the biggest selling female artists of the late ’80s/early ’90s, but it took theĀ blues singer-songwriter nearly 20 years and 10 albums to finally get the attention and big break that she deserved. On April 10, the Rock & Roll Hall Of Famer will release her 16th studio album, Slipstream, her first in seven years and the debut album for her own label, Redwing Records. The 12-track record, which Raitt self-produced with some help from Joe Henry, is a cover heavy affair featuring tracks from Bob Dylan, Loudon Wainwright III and Gerry Rafferty. Raitt has lined up a theater heavy tour in support of the album, which kicks off on May 1 at the Event Center at the First Council Casino in Newkirk, Okla. and includes high profile stops at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Fest (5/6) and New York’s Beacon Theater (6/20), and features both Marc Cohn and Mavis Staples holding down the opening slot.

If you’re not into a night with Bonnie Raitt’s brand of blues-rock, then maybe you’ll be interested in hitting one of these recently announced tours…
