(CelebrityAccess) — Singer-songwriter Jackson Browne has expanded his current run on the East Coast with new shows with his full backing band.
New dates include shows in Wallingford, CT and Boston, MA as well as at Wolf Trap, in Saratoga Springs, and concluding in Bethel, NY on July 6th.
Accompanying Jackson this for the tour are longtime band mates Bob Glaub (bass), Mauricio Lewak (drums), Val McCallum (guitar), Alethea Mills (vocals), Chavonne Stewart (vocals), Jeff Young (keyboards, vocals), and the acclaimed multi-instrumentalist Greg Leisz (guitar, lap steel, pedal steel).
The run starts in June with a previously announced four-night stand at the famed Beacon Theatre in New York City.
Special guest Lucius will open the four Beacon Theatre shows, scheduled for June 23, 24, 26 and 28, and Saratoga Performing Arts Center in Saratoga Springs, NY (July 5) and Bethel Woods in Bethel, NY (July 6).
Lucius and Jackson first met in 2015 while on the set of the Cameron Crowe created show Roadies. Fronted by Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, Lucius has drawn acclaim for powerful vocal performances.
“I went to my first Lucius concert thinking I knew what they do,” said Jackson Browne. “I had sung a little with Jess and Holly, and I was enchanted by them and by their unique singing. But I was amazed to discover the depth and the originality of this band. Their songs and their arrangements, their huge dynamics – they just blew me away. Then I saw them a second time in a smaller venue, and it was so intimate, and again, on a whole other level, I was fascinated by the unique collaboration taking place. I’m excited that I get to appear with Lucius this summer, and that my audience will have a chance to hear this great band. And of course, I’m really happy to have the chance to play for their audience too. My band and their band – these shows will be epic!”
