Bonnie Raitt is thrilled to return to New Zealand for two shows only in April 2017 in support of her 20th album, 'Dig In Deep' (Redwing Records - released Feb. 2016). All profits from her New Zealand concerts will be donated to The Westpac Rescue Helicopter.

After selling out much of her North American tour to date, Raitt is currently continuing her journey across America through November 2016. And is looking forward to returning down-under in April 2017 with special guest New Zealand's own Jackie Bristow.

Raitt will perform with her long-time touring band:

Previously in Neville Brothers Band and session musician with many New Orleans artists including Hey Smith, Earl King ,The Lastie Brothers, James Black, Professor Longhair, The Wild Tchoupitoulas and James Booker, amongst others!

Ricky Fataar (drums), has toured and recorded with Bonnie Raitt since 1990. Previously recruited by The Beach Boys in 1972 (following Dennis Wilson’s debilitating hand accident) he’s also an accomplished session musician of note. Special interest to NZ Media: Ricky has recorded with Tim Finn (Message To My Girl) Crowded House; Jenny Morris and many other international artists.

George Marinelli (guitar), member of Bonnie Raitt’s band since 1993. Staten-Island-born, George is a much sought-after session musician in his current hometown of Nashville. Early career he was the guitarist for Billy and the Beaters, Jimmie Wood and The Immortals and a founding member of Bruce Hornsby and The Range.

He has toured and/or recorded with many artists, including Jimi Hendrix, The Manhattan Transfer, Maria Muldaur, Buddy Guy, Etta James, John Hiatt, Taj Mahal, Crosby Stills & Nash, Joe Cocker, Keb Mo, and much more. He also continues to work and record with the Phantom Blues Band.

Jackie Bristow announced as 'Dig in Deep' opening Act:

Jackie is a much sought-after performer in the US who has had the honour of being the opening act for artists such as John Oates, Art Garfunkel, Rick Springfield and much more.

Praise for Dig In Deep Us Tour, to date:
Throughout her 2016 tour, Raitt's performances have garnered praise, with Billboard complimenting her "magnificent form: confident, engaging and sexy while singing and playing her bottleneck slide guitar with searing soulfulness" at one of two sold-out shows at New York City's Beacon Theatre. Raitt was featured on the most recent broadcast of CBS Sunday Morning in a career-spanning profile highlighted by an in-depth interview and live performance footage from her recent sold out show at The Orpheum Theatre in Boston.

After selling out much of her North American tour to date, Raitt is currently continuing her journey across America through November 2016, playing at storied venues in Memphis, Atlanta, New Orleans and Austin. And looks forward to returning down under in April 2017.

2016 has been a year to remember for Bonnie Raitt, with the Rock and Roll Hall of Famer releasing her 20th album 'Dig In Deep' (Redwing Records) earlier this year and selling out tour dates in the U.S. and overseas.
