US Blues Legend Bonnie Raitt Confirms June 2013 UK Tour & Tickets

Legendary American blues singer/songwriter Bonnie Raitt has announced the UK leg of her Slipstream Tour 2013, her first visit to the UK since 2006.

Bonnie released her first new album in seven years ‘Slipstream’ to widespread acclaim in April 2012 and will bring her daring bluesy sound, steeped with inimitable slide guitar and soulful vocals, back to the UK for much anticipated live shows in June 2013. Bonnie Raitt tickets go on-sale 9am on Friday 26th October.

After an emotional period, with such triumphs as her 2005 release and tour for ‘Souls Alike,’ and 2009 national tour with fellow blues legend Taj Mahal alongside the tragedy of losing her parents, her brother, and her best friend, Raitt decided to step back. “I took a hiatus from touring and recording to get back in touch with the other part of my life,” Raitt says of her decision to recharge her spirit and regain her personal balance before returning to action.

There’s no doubt that Raitt is re-energized. 'Slipstream' marked her biggest chart debut in the United States in two decades and is one of the top 5-selling independent albums of the year. She is also wrapping up an 80-date North American tour this month, which included more than 40 sold out shows and some rave reviews from the mainstream press.

Bonnie Raitt is an institution in American music – a nine-time GRAMMY-winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee with tens of millions of albums sold worldwide, she has undeniably changed the landscape of soul, rock, and blues. She is also a passionate activist and supporter of causes ranging from the anti-nuclear movement to youth music programs.

Sunday 9th June - Southend Cliffs Pavilion
