Six-time Platinum, Grammy Award-winning rock band Blues Traveler has a new tour and album slated for release this year. Yes, the harmonica-driven jam band has announced a string of dates that will start this spring in April and conclude, as of now, in May.
The band’s new live album, which is a double LP, will be out in spring 2023, according to a press statement.
The Spring tour will kick off on April 25 at the Fox Theatre in Hutchinson, Kansas, and run through the end of May, culminating at the Flying Monkey on May 24 in Plymouth, New Hampshire. During the shows, the band will perform songs spanning their 14 hit albums.
Live and Acoustic: Fall of 1997 is a selection of highlights from the band’s tour 25 years ago. According to the release, the 25th-anniversary limited edition double LP will include unreleased, remastered material from the initial two-track soundboard recordings. Amongst the tracks on the upcoming drop are fan favorites and some of the band’s best-known material like “Run-Around,” “But Anyway” and “The Mountains Win Again,” interspersed with several deep cuts.
“This exclusive limited-edition double LP is a selection of many of the highlights from our legendary 1997 fall tour that produced the only acoustic sets that the original lineup of Blues Traveler, including our beloved friend and bassist, Bobby Sheehan ever played on tour,” said Guitarist Chan Kinchla. “These previously unheard and uncirculated tracks are remastered from the original 2-track soundboard recordings for the ultimate Blues Traveler live and acoustic experience.”
