Browne will wrap his Japan experience with a concert at Hiroshima Bunka Gakuen HBG in Hiroshima on October 24th.
Accompanying Jackson for the tour will be a full band, including longtime band mates Bob Glaub (bass), Mauricio Lewak (Drums), Val McCallum (guitar), Alethea Mills (Vocals), Chavonne Stewart (vocals), Jeff Young (keyboards), and multi-instrumentalist Greg Leisz (guitar, lap steel, pedal steel).
"This is my ideal band, with some of my favorite players, whose combined gifts provide the musical foundation and emotional underpinnings of my new songs," says Jackson. "The interplay between Val McCallum and Greg Leisz – the effortlessness of their chemistry is a gift really, that just dropped into my lap. I feel fortunate to have them out on the road for this tour."
