Bonnie Raitt to make tour stop in Atlanta this fall

Bonnie Raitt has added a string of 14 shows to her 2016 North American Tour in support of her twentieth album, ‘Dig In Deep’ (Redwing Records), released on February 26. After selling out much of her North American tour to date, Raitt continues her journey across America through November, stopping in Atlanta on Saturday, October 22 at 8:00 p.m. with special guests, The California Honeydrops.

Tickets go on sale to the general public beginning Friday, May 20 at 10:00 a.m. Tickets priced at $99.00$79.00$59.00, and $39.00 will be available online at www.FoxTheatre.org, by phone at (855) 285-8499, or visiting the Fox theatre Ticket Office.

Raitt is joined by her longtime touring band: James “Hutch” Hutchinson (bass), Ricky Fataar (drums), and George Marinelli (guitar), along with Mike Finnigan (keyboards).

Throughout her Spring 2016 tour, Raitt’s performances have garnered praise, with Billboard complimenting her “magnificent form: confident, engaging and sexy, while singing and playing her bottleneck slide guitar with searing soulfulness” at one of two sold-out shows at New York City’s Beacon Theatre.

Continuing a long-standing tradition in conjunction with the Guacamole Fund, Bonnie will donate one dollar from every ticket purchased to grassroots local, regional, and national organizations whose work focuses on safe and sustainable energy, social justice and human rights, environmental protection, and blues/music education.

Raitt was featured on the most recent broadcast of CBS Sunday Morning in a career-spanning profile highlighted by an in-depth interview and live performance footage from last month’s sold out show at The Orpheum Theatre in Boston: http://www.cbsnews.com/news/bonnie-raitt-no-slowing-down/
