The Tedeschi Trucks Band is picking up and is returning to the state this summer for two special shows.

“Tedeschi Trucks: Fireside Live” will be at the Westville Music Bowl in New Haven on July 6th and 7th. Tickets will be sold on Friday at 10 a.m. at

The unique tour is in the style of The Fireside Sessions and will attract lineups of four to seven band members. “The Fireside Sessions” was the band’s home concert series that was streamed to fans. It featured a varied cast and sometimes debuted new material written during the pandemic.

Billed as Tedeschi Trucks – without the word “tape” – the line-up will be confirmed closer to the start of the tour, subject to travel and safety restrictions.

“These live performances offer fans a rare, possibly unique, experience until the expanded band can return in their 12-piece form as soon as security permits,” the tour’s press release said.
