Brit guitar legend John McLaughlin will soon break his three-year hiatus from the U.S., and embark on a brief, month-long tour of North America this coming June. McLaughlin and his fellow bandmates in The 4th Dimension have scheduled a series of stops both down south and up north (including one in the Great White North region of Ontario, Canada) from the 11th through the 23rd. Notable bookings include a stint at Bonnaroo and a three-night residency at NYC’s Blue Note Jazz Club.
Landing at no. 49 on Rolling Stone Magazine’s list of the 100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time, McLaughlin was a seminal figure back in Great Britain’s ’60s-era rock scene, before he hopped the pond and began recording with Miles Davis, among other American music giants. These days, McLaughlin continues to draw crowds with the 4th Dimension, whose lineup he’s recently perfected: “This is another reason I’m delighted to bring this new lineup to the US, since we’ve played all over Western and Eastern Europe and had such enthusiastic audiences.”
Let’s hope his Stateside reception doesn’t disappoint. Only a few tickets are available now, but be sure to check back here as more seats begin to sell closer to his tour’s official kickoff on June 11:
