Jeff Beck has announced five U.S. solo concerts for September. The news, revealed on June 17, is in addition to two high profile performances that were previously announced.

On April 8, Beck and Rod Stewart announced they will reunite on stage for their first concert in over 35 years, when they perform together on September 27 at the Hollywood Bowl. Stewart was a member of the Jeff Beck Group in the late ’60s until leaving in 1969.

In addition, Beck will perform at the September 20 concert of Eric Clapton’s Crossroads Guitar Festival.

Tickets for Beck’s solo dates go on sale Friday, June 21 at 10 a.m. here. (Tickets for his Phoenix, Ariz., concert go on sale June 24.)

Stewart, a two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee, is on tour for much of 2019. The Hollywood Bowl performance falls during the midst of a residency he’ll be doing at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace in Las Vegas. His September 27 concert will feature what the ad calls “a landmark reunion set” with his former band mate. Tickets for Stewart’s concerts are available here.

Beck is also a two-time Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee. Joining him at the Crossroads Festival as well as the five solo dates will be Vinnie Colaiuta on drums, Rhonda Smith on bass, Jimmy Hall on vocals and cellist Vanessa Freebairn-Smith.

He is working on new music with a planned 2020 release.

Watch Beck join Stewart for a 2009 performance of “I Ain’t Superstitious,” which they originally recorded for Beck’s solo album, Truth, in 1968

The Jeff Beck Group made their American debut in 1968 opening for the Grateful Dead at the Fillmore East. That performance earned them a career-making review from Robert Shelton of the New York Times, saying: “The group’s principal format is the interaction of Mr. Beck’s wild and visionary guitar against the hoarse and insistent shouting of Rod Stewart… Their dialogues were lean and laconic, the verbal Ping-Pong of a musical Pinter play. The climaxes were primal, bringing the ‘big beat’ of the English rock school forward… (with) whimsy and invention and modernist games thrown in.”
