JACKSON BROWNE ADDS MORE FULL BAND SHOWS TO HIS EAST COAST TOUR THIS JUNE & JULY
Special Guest Lucius will open NY shows in Saratoga Springs, Bethel and four nights at the Beacon Theatre
(Los Angeles, February 7, 2019). Singer Songwriter Jackson Browne adds more shows to his East Coast Tour, which starts with a four-night concert run at the Beacon Theatre in New York, NY this June 2019. 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. Tickets go on sale Friday, February 15 at 10 AM (Eastern Time).
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).
Accompanying Jackson this June & July 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).
Lucius and Jackson first met in 2015 on the set of the Cameron Crowe created show Roadies. Fronted by the enchanting Jess Wolfe and Holly Laessig, Lucius has drawn acclaim for powerful songs showcasing taut hooks, along with their mesmerizing stage presence and bold visual aesthetics. The New York Times described Wolfe and Laessig’s vocals as being “especially gorgeous,” while Rolling Stone says Lucius is “powerful enough to knock you over.” Talented multi-instrumentalists Peter Lalish and Dan Molad round out the group.
"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!"
