JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Live Nation and Bold Events announced today that Tedeschi Trucks Band’s Wheels of Soul tour – a standout of the summer concert season – is returning next year with two performers who exemplify the best of the modern soul movement.

Wheels of Soul will be a highlight of TTB’s 2020 itinerary, as the GRAMMY-winning group plans to reduce their touring load after 200+ days on the road each year.

Led by the husband and wife team of guitarist Derek Trucks and vocalist/guitarist Susan Tedeschi, the 12-member strong Tedeschi Trucks Band is acclaimed by critics and fans alike for their uncompromising commitment to bringing the highest level of musicianship to the stage. TTB has meticulously curated their flagship multi-band summer tour with the same focus on putting together not just a spectacular triple bill, but a true musical collaboration among the three bands to create a unique and unparalleled evening of music. Past guests have included Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings, Los Lobos, The Wood Brothers and The Marcus King Band among several others and earned the tour a reputation as “nothing short of exhilarating,” (Salon) and “nonstop excellence, virtuosity and musical community on all fronts.” (Chicago Blues Guide).
In what has become a tour tradition, fans can expect 2020’s installment of Wheels of Soul to deliver onstage guest sit-ins and unpredictable set lists with a large catalog of songs covering a wide range of musical tastes. Gabe Dixon will pull double duty, taking the stage first with his trio, then joining his TTB bandmates to close out the evening.
One of contemporary music’s most respected bands, Tedeschi Trucks Band is unrivaled in their blend of American soul, blues, country and rock. Now celebrating 10 years together, the ensemble’s commanding performances and exceptional musical chemistry are perpetual hallmarks of the can’t-miss-concert experience fans have come to anticipate live. Simply stated by the Houston Press, “The band seamlessly showcases the genuine transformative power of music.”
