TEDESCHI TRUCKS ANNOUNCE FIRESIDE LIVE UPCOMING JUNE-JULY DATES FEATURING UNIQUE LINEUPS WITH MEMBERS OF TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND
Fireside Live Kicks Off with a Two-Night Special Event at Daily’s Place June 11 and 12
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, along with Bold Events, announce Fireside LIVE - a special series of socially distanced, limited-capacity performances this summer. They will be joined by varying members of Tedeschi Trucks Band each night with the total band configuration ranging between four and seven musicians depending on the show. The modified lineup will perform under the name ‘Tedeschi Trucks’ for the first time as a nod to their band members who are unable to join the tour because of the challenging conditions with the current pandemic.
Fireside LIVE will kick off in Jacksonville, FL at Daily’s Place with a two-night run on June 11 and 12 then hit cities across the south and northeast through the months of June and July. Daily’s Place will be donating a select number of tickets to vaccinated first responders and healthcare workers for both performances. Tickets for the Jacksonville dates will go on sale to the general public Friday, April 23 at 10 a.m. Pre-sales take place Tuesday, April 21 at 8 a.m. ET through Thursday, April 22 at 10 pm. Priority access will be granted to people who bought tickets for the 2021 ‘Wheel of Soul’ shows. For more information or to purchase tickets, please visit www.dailysplace.com.
Fireside LIVE was inspired by their very successful at-home online performance series from earlier this year, the Fireside Sessions. The shows will be the first fully live public performances for the ensemble since February 2020, and come on the heels of the recent postponement of their annual summer Wheels of Soul Tour to next year (2022). Venues will include a mix of small or reduced-capacity outdoor amphitheaters, drive-ins and pod set-ups, all of which are covid-19 compliant and taking precautions to ensure the safety of fans, staff, band and crew.
“We're really looking forward to getting on the road and seeing everybody's beautiful faces," said Susan. "Getting together earlier this year to record the Fireside Sessions was really re-energizing, and we are excited to play live in front of fans again. As much as we love performing as the full Tedeschi Trucks Band, current conditions just don’t allow for us to do that.”
The decision as to which members will join for each show will be decided week to week, depending on local conditions at the time.
Fireside LIVE brings to the stage the same intimate window into the band's creative chemistry that was on display during the Fireside Sessions, which streamed back in Feb-March on nugs.net. Packed with deep cuts, reimagined songs, and several premieres of rare covers and new original songs that the band has been working on during the break, the six-episode streaming series was enthusiastically received for delivering something new and unique each week.
