John McLaughlin Confirms June Dates
Legendary jazz guitarist John McLaughlin has confirmed his first U.S. tour in three years. The tour will begin on June 11 in Durham, NC and will make stops in Asheville, Washington, DC, Bethlehem, Boston, New York and Toronto. McLaughlin and his legendary 4th Dimension band will also make a special appearance at this year’s Bonnaroo Festival in Manchester, Tennessee on June 14.
“Since I last visited the US, there has been a change in my band The 4th Dimension,” he said in a statement. “Drummer Ranjit Barot became a permanent member of the band and I know our friends and listeners over there will be thrilled to see and hear him with Etienne M’Bappe, Gary Husband and myself. We recorded a new CD a short while back called Now Here This, and I’m very, very happy with this recording. This is another reason I’m delighted to bring this new lineup to the US since we’ve played all over Western and Eastern Europe and had such enthusiastic audiences.”
After celebrating his 70th birthday year, McLaughlin released his latest studio recording with The 4th Dimension, Now Here This, last October. McLaughlin is best known for his work with Miles Davis and his own Mahavishnu Orchestra.
