Bruce Hornsby Sets 2020 Tour Dates

Share This:

The pianist, singer and songwriter, Bruce Hornsby, has announced spring 2020 solo dates, to support his recent album, Absolute Zero. The LP from the three-time Grammy award winner followed the release of 2016’s Rehab Reunion.

In September, Hornsby revealed a handful of dates with yMusic. Tickets are available here and here.

Hornsby turned 65 on Nov. 23, 2019.

“This year has been an extremely enjoyable ‘Noisemakers Year’ on the road,” he said, “so much so that I won’t have played any solo concerts in the U.S. for the first time in many years. I guess my agency and the yMusic crowd conspired to get me back into that mode next year, because they presented me with this Southern Solo Tour and several dates with the great chamber ensemble, playing solo in the south and solo with violin, viola, cello, clarinet, flute and trumpet (the yMusic instrumentation) in the northeast. And I said yes to all of it.”

The genesis of Absolute Zero began within Hornsby’s work as a film composer for writer-director Spike Lee. Hornsby started collaborating with Lee in 1992; ultimately, in 2008, he began scoring for Lee.

Predominantly produced by Hornsby, the 10-track album includes added production from Justin Vernon (Bon Iver), Tony Berg (Phoebe Bridgers, Andrew Bird, Public Image Ltd.) and Brad Cook (Sharon Van Etten, Hiss Golden Messenger). Absolute Zero also includes musical contributions from yMusic, the Staves, Blake Mills, Jack DeJohnette, Sean Carey, the Orchestra of St. Hanks (Frost School/Univ. of Miami), Hornsby’s longtime band the Noisemakers and more.
