BONNIE RAITT COMES TO NJPAC IN NOVEMBER

 

(NEWARK, NJ) -- Bonnie Raitt will come to the New Jersey Performing Arts Center in Newark, NJ, on Friday, November 22. Tickets run from $39.50 to $99.50 plus service charges and are available online at NJPAC.org , by phone at 1-888-GO-NJPAC, or in person at the NJPAC Box Office located at One Center Street in downtown Newark.

More than just a best-selling artist, respected guitarist, expressive singer, and accomplished songwriter, Bonnie Raitt has become an institution in American music. Named one of Rolling Stones "100 Greatest Singers of All Time," she broke through with her Grammy Award winning albums, Nick of Time and Luck of the Draw, which featured hits such as, "Something To Talk About," "I Can't Make You Love Me" and Thing Called Love. 

The Rock and Roll Hall of Famer recently released her nineteenth album, Slipstream. The album marked her return to studio recording after seven years and the launch of her label, Redwing Records. A huge success, Slipstream sold over a quarter-million copies in 2012, making it one of the top selling independent albums, and earned Raitt her 10th GRAMMY Award (Best Americana Album). From the New York Times to People Magazine, 'Slipstream' was also lauded in numerous top critics' lists for album of the year. Raitt performed at the 2012 Kennedy Center Honors and received the Lifetime Achievement Award for Performance from the Americana Music Association.
After a brief hiatus, Raitt is recharged with a batch of great new songs to play in her live set along with the tried and true favorites that have treated her very loyal following to countless memorable shows through the years.
