Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi have announced the Fireside Live Tour, a series of socially distant concerts with limited capacity that will take place this summer.
The duo will visit a number of small or reduced amphitheaters, drive-ins, and pod setups outdoors in the United States in June and July. Every night different members of the Tedeschi Trucks Band with a total of four to seven musicians will be present at each show. They’ll be performing under the nickname “Tedeschi Trucks” for the first time to nod their bandmates who can’t join them because of the coronavirus pandemic.
The tour announcement follows the group’s Fireside Sessions, a six-episode series at home that began on February 18 and continued every Thursday through March. Like the upcoming tour, the Fireside Sessions featured different iterations of the band.
The Fireside Live Tour marks the Tedeschi Trucks Band’s first personal live performances since last February, just before the pandemic put live music on hold for an indefinite period. The group recently postponed their Wheels of Soul tour, a more extensive walking tour that will hit major theaters and amphitheaters across the country, to summer 2022.
“We’re really looking forward to taking to the streets and seeing everyone’s beautiful faces,” Tedeschi told fans in a statement. As much as we love playing as the entire Tedeschi Trucks Band, the current conditions just don’t allow us to do it. “
Tickets for all Fireside Live – with the exception of the last two dates at the Red Rocks Amphitheater – will be sold to the general public on April 23 at 10 a.m. CET. Please visit the band’s website for more information. You can see the tour dates below.
