After completing their annual Wheels of Summer Tour – with special guests Wood Brothers and Hot Tune – the band is back on the road for more dates this fall throughout the US. Announced special guests include Greyhounds, Hard Working Americans, North Mississippi Allstars, The Wood Brothers and David Luning.
The Greyhounds will join the band in Alabama, Arkansas, New York and Arizona. Hard Working Americans will share the stage with Tedeschi Trucks Band in Texas, Oregon, Washington and California.
The Wood Brothers and Mississippi Allstars will each play one show in New York. David Luning will support the band on two dates in California
