Bonnie Raitt goes to Boston
One of the hottest concert tickets of the summer next year will grant admission to an iconic venue in the city of Boston.
In case you haven't heard, James Taylor will finally perform a full concert at Fenway Park in August, and he'll be joined by none other than very special guest Bonnie Raitt. The event is scheduled to take place Thursday, August 6, 2015. Tickets for the concert, which range in price from $50.50 to $130.50, are on sale now. A portion of the proceeds from the concert will be donated to Action for Boston Community Development.
Taylor, who was born in Boston and currently resides in Massachusetts, has famously performed the national anthem at Fenway during the World Series in 2004, 2007 and 2013. Though no official announcement has been made, he is expected to release his first new album in over a decade next year. He has even previewed some of the new material at recent concerts, and revealed that one of the new songs is called "Angels of Fenway" written about the Red Sox 2004 Word Series Championship.
Raitt, meanwhile, released her last album in 2012 with "Slipstream." It was her sixteenth studio release and follow-up to 2005's "Souls Alike," which won the Grammy Award for Best Americana Album. The 12-track album features four songs recorded with producer Joe Henry and his musicians, while the remainder of the project is produced with Raitt's touring band. The album a handful of covers and is led by Gerry Rafferty's "Right Down The Line", which served as the album's lead single.
Bonnie rates in the mainstream again (Updated March 13, 2013)
What does it take to slip the name of a popular singer-songwriter from the 1970's back into the mainstream? If your name is Bonnie Raitt, the admiration of superstars like Adele, Katy Perry, Lady Antebellum and Kelly Clarkson will do the trick quite nicely.
The contingent mentioned above includes just a few of the artists who have covered Raitt's "I Can't Make You Love Me," originally released in 1989. This new generation embracing the 'old' music of a champion of American roots-music has pushed Raitt back into the collective conscious of music fans in the United States and around the world.
Evidence enough of Raitt's renewed popularity was her Grammy win in the Best Americana Album category at the 2013 Grammy Awards. The trophy was for 2012's "Slipstream," Raitt's first album on her own record label, Redwing, after four decades with major labels like Warmer Bros. and Capitol. It was praised by critics as her best project in years and one of the best of her 40-year career. It became the best-selling Blues album of 2012, and made Raitt the best-selling Blues artist of the year.
Raitt has 18 solo albums to her credit overall, and has been featured on projects by everyone from B.B. King to James Taylor. She's been credited as an inspiration and one of the main reasons bands and women instrumentalists are at the forefront of the music industry.
Re-energized, Raitt's "Slipstream" tour is crisscrossing the globe with classics, covers and plenty of her new songs. It includes stops in the U.S., Singapore, Australia, New Zealand, England and more.
