Tedeschi Trucks Band
Support: North Mississippi Allstars
Driven by guitar virtuoso Derek Trucks and singer-guitarist Susan Tedeschi, the return to Peabody Opera House adds to the Grammy Award-winning band’s growing legacy of delivering one-of-a-kind, unforgettable performances in St. Louis.
Tedeschi Trucks Band critically-hailed musicianship and full touring schedule have built a dedicated and growing following around the world and earned them a reputation as one of the best live performing bands in the business. Since the January 2016 release of Let Me Get By, their tour has taken the group across the globe, with dates in Australia, Japan, Europe and Canada, multiple sold-out night runs in Nashville, Chicago, Washington DC and Philadelphia, and an unprecedented return engagement to New Orleans Jazz and Heritage Festival. Most recently, the group wrapped up their summer “Wheels of Soul” amphitheater tour with Los Lobos and North Mississippi Allstars. Numerous nightly collaborations had critics describing the show as a “near-religious experience,” “a full night of musical camaraderie” that “boasted plenty of blow-you-away moments,” and Red Rocks’ AEG concert promoter Chuck Morris calling it “one of the best shows in all my years since 1976 when I started here.”
Highly respected by their peers, the demand for the married couple on stage and on record continues to increase. On September 1, Derek and Susan joined the live B.B. King tribute concert in Los Angeles to benefit the GRAMMY Foundation and GRAMMY Museum alongside Keb’ Mo’, Slash, Jimmie Vaughan, Joe Bonamassa, Kenny Wayne Shepherd and Joe Louis Walker among others. Upcoming fall highlights also include a return to Beacon Theatre in New York City for a sixth consecutive year, this year expanding its run to six nights (9/30-10/8) and closing out the year with three nights in Susan’s hometown of Boston at the Orpheum Theatre.
In the past year, Derek and Susan have also made contributions in the studio guesting on a number of projects, including The Songs of Blind Willie Johnson: God Don’t Never Change, The Wood Brothers(Paradise), Randall Bramblett (Devil Music), and featured Susan duets on new releases from both Eric Church (Mr. Misunderstood) and John Prine (For Better, Or Worse).
Since their inception in 2010, TTB have seen all three of their studio albums debut in the Top 15 of the Billboard 200, and won a Grammy for their debut album Revelator. Let Me Get By (Fantasy/Concord) is the first album the band has released since Derek Trucks’ departure from the Allman Brothers Band. It’s a completely homegrown record, produced by Derek and delivering all original material written within the TTB family. Let Me Get By earned praise from Rolling Stone, the Wall Street Journal, and the Associated Press, who called it “one of the great records of the year.” NPR has praised Trucks and Tedeschi as “two of the best roots rock musicians of their generation.”
