Tedeschi Trucks Band Reveals ‘Wheels Of Soul’ 2018 Tour Dates
Once again, the Tedeschi Trucks Band will team up with other other dynamite acts this summer for a Wheels Of Soul Tour. This year, the TTB will be joined by Drive-By Truckers and The Marcus King Band.
Wheels Of Soul ’18 begins on June 29 at a city and venue to be announced soon. Then, the groups hit Tuscaloosa, Alabama on June 30. From there, Wheels Of Soul ’18 heads to Charleston, Saratoga Springs, Hartford, Gilford, Mansfield, Canandaigua, Raleigh, Charlotte, Lewiston, Burgettstown, Indianapolis and Sterling Heights. After a stop in Cincinnati, the tour will once again conclude with two shows at Red Rocks in Morrison, Colorado July 28 – 29.
“We all draw from some of the same roots,” said Derek Trucks in a statement. “But we also share a different perspective than your typical southern rock bands do. I have a lot of respect and admiration for the Truckers’ songwriting. It’s an honest take on the world we live in.” Marcus reminds Derek of himself, “It’s been fun getting to know Marcus and watching him develop. He sat in with us at the Beacon and it will be great to have a chance to collaborate more on stage over the summer.”
The excitement over hitting the road isn’t limited to the TTB. “An amazing band and great folks. It’s going to be a blast,” added Patterson Hood from Drive-By Truckers. “Two years ago I saw Doyle Bramhall II, Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings and TTB in Charlotte, NC. I felt the electricity of the show through every part of me and said, we need to be part of this tour. It’s a blessing to be part of the energy this year,” Marcus King said.
A pre-sale begins here Tuesday, January 9 at 10 a.m. local time with “SOUL” as the password.
