Tedeschi Trucks Band, 2017

Tedeschi Trucks Band has announced the third installment of their Wheels of Soul Summer Tour. The 12-piece ensemble led by husband and wife Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi will be supported on all dates by the Wood Brothers and Hot Tuna. The tour is scheduled to hit premier outdoor venues. After four consecutive sold-out shows at Colorado’s Red Rocks for Tedeschi Trucks Band, this year’s tour adds a second night at the natural amphitheater.

“It’s been great to develop this tour into an annual event where we get a chance to hit the road and share the stage with fellow musicians we love and respect,” said Susan Tedeschi in a press release. “Each year we try to find bands that share our musical vision while bringing their own unique talents to this traveling circus.”

“We go way back with Derek and Susan. They are some of our favorite friends and collaborators” said Oliver Wood of the Wood Brothers. Wood co-wrote a song on TTB’s Grammy-winning debut album, Revelator, and Derek and Susan guested on the Wood Brothers’ 2015 release Paradise.

Derek Trucks, in the release, added that this tour offers a unique opportunity for both the musicians and fans. “Every year as the tour rolls along the collaborations between all the musicians grow and grow. It inspires and challenges us in new ways and I think that really translates to the audience when they see how much fun we’re having with our friends.”

Jorma Kaukonen of Hot Tuna crossed paths with Derek and Susan early in their careers and Kaukonen supported TTB on select shows in 2016. When asked about joining Wheels of Soul this year he said, “Tedeschi Trucks is arguably one of the greatest bands in the world today. It is an honor for me and my Hot Tuna brothers to be part of this great tour”

TTB is currently on a series on North American tour dates, having just played multiple nights at the Chicago Theatre. The band plays three already sold-out nights at the Warner Theater in Washington, D.C., at the end of February, and ends their tour with a three-night stint at Nashville’s Ryman Auditorium before a European tour in the spring. A live TTB record is in the works and will be announced later this year.
