Tedeschi Trucks Band’s increasingly successful Wheels of Soul tour returns to the road in 2019, for one of the most anticipated concert events of the summer. The five-week slate of 24 shows concludes with two nights at the famed Fox Theatre on August 2 and 3, 2019 at 7:30 p.m. in Atlanta.
Tickets go on sale Friday, December 14 at 10 a.m. at FoxTheatre.org, the Fox Theatre Ticket Office, and 855-285-8499. Ticket prices range from $29 – $150 plus applicable fees. Single-event access to the Marquee Club presented by Lexus will be available for purchase on top of your show ticket. Marquee Club passes are $65 per person and include early private entry with no lines, pre-show dinner, and access to private restrooms and bars throughout the performance as well as post-show.
Unrivaled in their blend of American soul, blues, rock and country, the 12-member Tedeschi Trucks Band, led by the husband and wife team of guitarist Derek Trucks and vocalist/guitarist Susan Tedeschi, has curated and cultivated this family-friendly experience into a highlight of the summer concert season. Each year the band selects kindred artists to join their rolling caravan, turning each night into a unique collaborative event rather than simply a three-band bill. Attracting larger audiences each successive year and expanding to new markets, critics hail the Wheels of Soul tour as “nothing short of spectacular,” (Saratogian), celebrating the “life-affirming power of music played with passion, skill and artistry,” (St. Louis Post Dispatch).
“The motivation and, really, the fun of Wheels of Soul is that we get to bring that spirit of musical camaraderie to a summer crowd,” says Trucks. “Traveling, being outside, playing music with friends new and old. We love the limitless energy of this tour.”
2018’s edition featured unparalleled musicianship, plenty of onstage sit-ins with guests Drive-By Truckers and The Marcus King Band, and broke TTB’s own attendance records. The group’s ever-changing setlists highlighted their evolving repertoire of more than 75 songs, including new originals such as “High and Mighty,” and surprising debuts like Ray Charles’ “Night Time Is the Right Time,” Al Green’s “Yield Not To Temptation,” and Neil Young’s “Rockin’ in the Free World.” Fans can expect more unforgettable moments as Tedeschi Trucks Band is joined next summer by Blackberry Smoke and Shovels & Rope.
