Bonnie Raitt

June 19 2017, 8:00 p.m. Bonnie Raitt. Bonnie Raitt returns to Vancouver in her first extended tour of Canada in over ten years, following the release of her Grammy-nominated twentieth album 'Dig In Deep' (Redwing Records).. Event detailsNOW Toronto reviewer Susan G. Cole wrote of Raitt's 2016 tour stop at Sony Centre, "it was exhilarating to see her swagger onto the stage before a packed house, confident, relaxed and ready to play her axe like a virtuoso. Whether she was deploying her bottleneck or finger picking on her signature blues tunes and ballads, Raitt killed it."  Cole ended her review "Raitt has terrific taste and a deep appreciation for great songwriters, delivering a transcendent version of John Prine's 'Angel From Montgomery' and, of course, her monster smash 'Something To Talk About', by Canadian songwriter Shirley Eikhard….  A gorgeously heartbreaking encore featuring I Can't Make You Love Me made it clear why she's lasted so long. Timeless."Joining Raitt will be her longtime touring band: James "Hutch" Hutchinson (bass), Ricky Fataar (drums), and George Marinelli (guitar), along with Mike Finnigan (keyboards). Special Guest Royal Wood will support all dates. With guest Royal Wood... Event Details. Location: 630 Hamilton Street, Vancouver
