Why see Bonnie Raitt?

A RAITT ROYAL RETURN

This lady should really be known as the Comeback Kid; long time the critic's darling, she bounced back from near musical oblivion and substance abuse issues in the Eighties to become one of pop rock's biggest icons. And this year, she's back, hitting the road with her longtime touring band.

Having started her career during the 1970s, Raitt released a series of acclaimed roots-influenced albums which incorporated elements of blues, rock, folk and country, but she is perhaps best known for her more commercially accessible recordings in the 1990s including "Nick of Time", "Something to Talk About", "Love Sneakin' Up on You", and the slow ballad "I Can't Make You Love Me".

Following her comeback album 2005 Souls Alike, she took a hiatus following the death of her parents and best friend; not to be beaten, her 2012 album Slipstream saw it enter the Billboard 200 chart at number 6, with rave reviews.

Raitt has received nine Grammy Awards in her career and is a lifelong political activist, campaigning for environmental issues, providing musical instruments for underprivileged children, and against the expansion of nuclear power.

Bonnie's Like Buttah!

Her voice was like velvet! Velvet butter! At 73, she just gets better with age like a fine wine. What a class act! ... Read more

Something to talk about!!!

There was a lot of loving at Bonnie’s concert last night at the Burton Cummings theatre… us (mostly) boomers loved her and she loved us. What a voice! What a musician! What a band! Why have we not seen her in concert before? The Burt was a perfect venue, almost intimate feel for a crowd of 1500. Royal Wood was a great surprise as opening act. All in all, Bonnie gave us something to talk about !!!👏 ... Read more

New Band Members?

This was the third time I've seen Bonnie and she was outstanding, as always. I was heartened to see the broad, positive response to Angel from Montgomery, and she appreciated it. At the outset she introduced "some new members of the band" and it felt to me like they were not together. The lead guitar was very adequate, but Bonnie blew him away. The keyboard player seemed to get lost at times and a couple of his solos amounted to 10 fingers pounding on random keys. A great show, I would always recommend it! ... Read more
