JEFF BECK ANNOUNCES SUMMER TOUR DATES
WITH BLUES LEGEND – BUDDY GUY
INCLUDING A CELEBRATION OF 50 YEARS IN MUSIC
WITH SPECIAL SHOW AT THE HOLLYWOOD BOWL
(Los Angeles, CA – March 14, 2016) Announced today, JEFF BECK will be performing throughout the U.S. this summer, beginning on July 19th in Port Chester, NY, before hitting NYC, CT, NJ, PA, VA, MI and a special stop at the Ravinia Festival in Highland Park, IL, on Sunday, July 31st. BECK will then head down to Nashville before making the trek west to Los Angeles. As was previously announced, BECK will make a very special appearance at the Hollywood Bowl on August 10th to celebrate 50 years of ‘dynamic music making’. Guitar icon Buddy Guy will co-headline all dates, except where noted below.
Over the course of BECK’s illustrious 50-year career, the trailblazing guitarist has earned many accolades. He’s been inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame – twice! First, as a member of the Yardbirds in 1992 and then again, as a solo artist in 2009. Rolling Stone Magazine ranked him as one of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” and he has earned a total of 8 Grammy Awards during his long career. In addition, BECK has been a guest performer at scores of sessions with everyone from Stevie Wonder and Buddy Guy to Tina Turner and Mick Jagger. Throughout his career, BECK routinely makes the fantastically difficult sound effortless.
Currently, BECK has been hard at work on his first book, focused on his twin inspirations – hot rodding and rock’n’roll – now bound together. The London-based Genesis Publishing Group plans to release BECK01, a high quality “signed, limited-edition” book, this year. In BECK01 Jeff Beck takes us on the journey of a lifetime. Over five decades, he has blazed a trail, forging a unique guitar style lauded by critics, fans and fellow guitar legends.
