NASHVILLE, Tenn. – (January 31, 2017) – Following the launch of their 30th anniversary year with a six-night residency in the famed Caesars Palace of Las Vegas (Feb. 22 - March 9, 2017), GRAMMY award-winning band Blues Traveler will return to the road for a 2017 spring tour. The 18-date tour will commence in Pocola, Okla. on Friday, April 7 and culminate at the New Orleans Jazz & Heritage Festival, Sunday, May 7. Limited tickets are currently available with additional tickets going on sale Friday, Feb. 3. To purchase tickets, click here.
The iconic and legendary band has already made a mark on 2017 with a performance in Washington D.C. at the Creative Coalition Inaugural Ball for the Arts, a non-partisan and non-profit arts advocacy group. Frontman John Popper followed up the performance with an appearance at Sundance Film Festival, joining the Grateful Dead’s Bob Weir on stage for a “haunting” (Rolling Stone) performance in celebration of the release of “Long Strange Trip,” a Grateful Dead documentary.
Prior to the start of the tour, Blues Traveler will film an episode of PBS' Bluegrass Underground, now in its seventh season, on March 26 at Cumberland Caverns’ Volcano Room in McMinnville, Tenn. The influential band continues to work in the studio recording a full-length album to honor their monumental 30-year career, slated for release later this year.
Throughout their career, the band has released 20 full-length albums, most recently the collaborative album “Blow Up the Moon,” described by Relix as an "audio equivalent of a Quentin Tarantino flick" and features a wide range of multi-genre artists including Plain White T’s, 3OH!3, Jewel, Rome Ramirez (Sublime) and JC Chasez (*NSYNC).
