with Special Guest Paul Brady
Greensboro’s War Memorial Auditorium will host Bonnie Raitt’s Slipstream Tour 2013. The evening will include an opening set by special guest Paul Brady on November 27 at 7:30 p.m.
More than just a best-selling artist, respected guitarist, expressive singer, and accomplished songwriter, Bonnie Raitt has become an institution in American music. Bonnie Raitt started anew with the release of 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. Slipstream delivers some of the most surprising and rewarding music of Raitt's remarkable career, thanks in part to some experimental sessions with celebrated producer Joe Henry.
Raitt sold out over half of her 80-date North American concert tour, and made several national TV appearances (Ellen, Leno, Letterman, GMA, Fallon and more), performed at the 2012 Kennedy Center Honors and received the Lifetime Achievement Award for Performance from the Americana Music Association.
