T Bone To Embark On First Concert Tour In Twenty Years

Friday, April 7th, 2006

T Bone will kick-off his first concert tour in nearly 20 years on May 23 at The Vic Theatre in Chicago . The True False Identity Tour will hit theaters and outdoor venues in 15 U.S. cities in support of T Bone’s two May 16 album releases: The True False Identity, and Twenty Twenty – The Essential T Bone Burnett. Visit our Tour Page to see all the dates.

T Bone’s band for the tour will consist of many of the musicians he worked with on his forthcoming studio release and on countless musical projects over the years: Jim Keltner on drums, Marc Ribot on guitar, Dennis Crouch on upright bass and Keefus Ciancia on keyboards.

Appearing as very special guest on the tour will be Jakob Dylan, who shares a long-standing friendship and musical history with T Bone. The two last collaborated in the mid-nineties, when Jakob’s band The Wallflowers worked with producer Burnett on their multi-platinum Bringing Down The Horse album. Jakob will perform on all dates, except June 15 in San Francisco , for which T Bone will be joined by Peter Hayes & Robert Levon Been of Black Rebel Motorcycle Club.
