Bonnie Raitt has added even more dates to her extensive North American fall tour. The singer-songwriter recently finished up a world tour in support of her 2012 album Slipstream, which was her most successful debut in two decades.

Raitt will begin her fall tour on October 3 in Paso Robles, CA before making her way across the United States over the course of the next two months. She will finally wrap things up at the newly reopened Saenger Theatre in New Orleans on December 7. Raitt will be joined by Marc Cohn, Mavis Staples and Paul Brady at different points along the way.

In an interesting move, Raitt has instated a “scalper prevention strategy” aimed at curtailing the sale of her tickets at inflated prices. Fans that have purchased premium tickets to her shows will have to pick up them up at the box office on the night of the show.

Not to be that guy. But when did Bonnie Raiit become someone this site covers. I understand growing the sites audience but jeez. There are few actual music news sites left so its hard to complain. But Bonnie Raiit. Is she on here cause she is playing the Cap and vested interests own both? If so, some disclusore would be appropriate.

Jambase is covering it because she’s awesome. They’ve been posting articles about artists who aren’t jam bands but are popular in the jam community for a long time now.

I think Bonnie Raitt is being covered because she sings like an angel and plays slide guitar like the devil. That, and the fact that she has played with everyone from Muddy Waters, John Lee Hooker, Little Feat, Allmans…writes terrific songs…

Yeah man, it sounds like you’re being that guy. She might not be a jamband but a lot of jamband fans probably like her

Agreed with above. Prolly because she is an awesome blues/rock/country singer who is relevant to a lot of acts people who frequent this site enjoy. She was big in the bluesy/rock scene for decades.
