Just Like That.. Tour 2023
with special guest Sunny War
ABOUT BONNIE RAITT
Bonnie Raitt’s Just Like That… Tour kicked off its second year with a buoyant start in California during this winter’s historic rainfall and storms! Sellout crowds braved travel through the elements to enjoy moving performances by Raitt and her consummate band of material from her three-time GRAMMY®-award winning album, Just Like That… (including the title track, 2023’s Song of the Year.) After island-hopping for two concerts in Hawaii, Raitt made four rousing appearances in Australia with two headlining-dates in Melbourne and Sydney with special guest Mavis Staples, followed by two performances at the Byron Bay Bluesfest.
The tour will continue on throughout much of 2023 with one more special addition. Bonnie Raitt and her band will return to ACL Live on October 14, 2023 to bring the ‘Just Like That…” Tour through town once again (after a brisk sellout for their November 2022 concert.) Special guest Sunny War will open the show. Tickets for this show will go on sale Friday, May 5th at 10am CT.
2022 was an incredible year for Raitt with a 75-date headlining U.S. tour; the release of her critically acclaimed 21st album ‘Just Like That…,’ on her independent label, Redwing Records; receiving the GRAMMY® Lifetime Achievement Award, being honored with the Icon Award at this year’s Billboard Women In Music Awards and seeing her breakthrough album, ‘Nick of Time’ added to the Library of Congress’ National Recording Registry. ‘Just Like That…’ was #1 on six Billboard charts the week of release and was perched at #1 on the Americana Radio Album Chart for ten consecutive weeks. The album’s first single, “Made Up Mind” remained in the top three spots on the Americana Radio Singles Chart for 17 weeks.

ABOUT BONNIE RAITT
Bonnie Raitt is a singer, songwriter and guitarist whose unique style blends blues, R&B, rock, and pop. After 20 years as a cult favorite, she broke through to the top in the early 90s with her GRAMMY-award winning albums, ‘Nick of Time’ and ‘Luck of the Draw,’ which featured hits, “Something To Talk About” and “I Can’t Make You Love Me” among others. The ten-time Grammy winner was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2000 and Rolling Stone named the slide guitar ace one of the “100 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” and one of the “100 Greatest Singers of All Time.”
Raitt’s widely-acclaimed 2012 independent release ‘Slipstream’ sold over a quarter-million copies, making it one of the top selling independent albums, and earned Raitt her 10th Grammy Award (Best Americana Album). In February 2016, Raitt released her highly-anticipated 20th album, ‘Dig In Deep’ (Redwing Records.) On tour for much of 2017-2019, Raitt and her band performed overseas in Australia, New Zealand as well as Canada before spending the summers touring as support for James Taylor in stadiums and arenas across the U.S., United Kingdom and Europe.
As known for her lifelong commitment to social activism as she is for her music, Raitt has long been involved with the environmental movement, performing concerts around oil, nuclear power, mining, water and forest protection since the mid 70’s. She was a founding member of MUSE (Musicians United for Safe Energy) which produced the historic concerts, album and movie NO NUKES and continues to work on safe energy issues in addition to environmental protection, social justice and human rights, as well as creator’s rights and music education.

ABOUT SUNNY WAR
“I feel like there are two sides of me,” says the Nashville-based singer-songwriter and guitar virtuoso known as Sunny War. “One of them is very self-destructive, and the other is trying to work with that other half to keep things balanced.” That’s the central conflict on her fourth album, the eclectic and innovative Anarchist Gospel, which documents a time when it looked like the self-destructive side might win out. Met with widespread critical acclaim, Anarchist Gospel was named a “Most Anticipated Album of 2023” by multiple outlets with NPR Music calling her new music “thrilling.” Rolling Stone said, “It all amounts to a powerful statement from a singer-songwriter poised to become one of the year’s most vital voices in roots music,” Bandcamp called it “a stellar work of art,” while The Sun in the UK said, “In a competitive field, this is the thrilling, uncompromising future of contemporary American roots music.”
