Jackson Browne has just rolled out nine full band shows for June and July. Browne, who'll be on the road acoustically throughout March and April, kicks the summer run off on June 23rd — with the first of four nights at Manhattan's Beacon Theatre. After that he'll hit Wallingford, Connecticut; Boston, Massachusetts; Vienna, Virginia; Saratoga Springs and Bethel, New York.
Backing Jackson Browne on the summer dates are longtime bandmates Bob Glaub on bass, Mauricio Lewak on drums, Val McCallum on guitar, Jeff Young on keyboards and vocals, Greg Leisz on guitar, lap steel, and pedal steel — along with vocalists Alethea Mills and Chavonne Stewart.
Special guest Lucius will open the six New York shows at the Beacon Theatre, Saratoga Performing Arts Center, and the Bethel Woods Center For The Arts.
Jackson Browne told us that at this point in his career, no one should be surprised at his core philosophies on both a human and political level: “Certainly, I have, and many people I know have been involved in trying to change the course of social, world events, y'know, U.S. policy, of, y'know, people's awareness of certain things. You have to be able to envision a world in some form that it doesn't exist in yet.”
