Cincinnati concert announcements and tickets on sale this week

·3 min read

Legendary blues guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd has announced additional dates for his 25th anniversary tour of the album "Trouble Is …" where he will be performing the album in its entirety. The tour includes a stop here in Cincinnati at Taft Theatre, with tickets going on sale this Friday.

Also coming to the Taft is the Celebrating David Bowie Tour. Rock 'n Roll Hall of Famer Todd Rundgren has assembled a stellar group of musicians for the tour, including local son Adrian Belew, Scrote, Spacehog's Royston Langdon, Jeffrey Gaines and others to interpret Bowie's greatest hits.

British pop-rock band The 1975 embark on a North American tour later this year and will make a stop in Newport this December at PromoWest Pavilion at Ovation, part of the "At Their Very Best" world tour. The band last visited Cincinnati in 2019.

On the heels of a successful string of East Coast shows earlier this year, controversial artist Ryan Adams is back out on the road and will be making a stop at the Andrew J. Brady Music Center in early December. The tour finds Adams performing with guitar and piano in an acoustic setting.
