Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi announce Fireside LIVE - a special series of socially distanced, limited-capacity performances this summer.They will be joined by varying members of Tedeschi Trucks Band each night with the total band configuration ranging between four and seven musicians depending on the show.The modified lineup will perform under the name ‘Tedeschi Trucks’ for the first time as a nod to their band members who are unable to join the tour because of the challenging conditions with the current pandemic.
Fireside LIVE was inspired by their very successful at-home online performance series from earlier this year, the Fireside Sessions.The shows will be the first fullylive public performances for the ensemble since February 2020, and come on the heels of the recent postponement of their annual summer Wheels of Soul Tour to next year (2022).Venues will include a mix of small or reduced-capacity outdoor amphitheaters, drive-ins and pod set-ups, all of which are covid-19 compliant and taking precautions to ensure the safety of fans, staff, band and crew.
Fireside LIVE will kick off in Jacksonville, FL with a two-night run on June 11/12 then hit cities across the south and northeast through the months of June and July.Tickets will go on sale to the general public Friday, April 30 at 10am CT.
“We're really looking forward to getting on the road and seeing everybody's beautiful faces," said Susan. "Getting together earlier this year to record the Fireside Sessions was really re-energizing, and we are excited to play live in front of fans again. As much as we love performing as the full Tedeschi Trucks Band, current conditions just don’t allow for us to do that.”
