“We’ve been waiting eight long years for Tedeschi Trucks Band to return, and I’m delighted to be able to bring them to Melbourne, Sydney and Bluesfest Byron Bay,” says Peter Noble OAM. “Last week, Tedeschi Trucks Band headlined Madison Square Garden in New York. These guys are a big deal!”

Noble is also excited that Lee Jones is heading to Australia next year. “Rickie Lee Jones’ unique storytelling ability and poetic lyrics have solidified her as a true American treasure, and this tour is a rare opportunity for Australian audiences to witness her musical genius up close and personal,” he says.

The Tedeschi Trucks Band and Rickie Lee Jones sideshows join previously announced Bluesfest Tours for Newton Faulkner and Drive-By Truckers.
