The sixth-annual Wheels of Soul tour — hosted, curated and headlined by Tedeschi Trucks Band — is coming back to Cincinnati in 2020.
This year's tour will feature Alabama Soul ensemble St. Paul and The Broken Bones and TTB keyboardist Gabe Dixon (with his trio) as special guests.
The 2020 Wheels of Soul tour will return to Riverbend's PNC Pavilion on July 26. Tickets go on sale Friday, Dec. 13 at 10 a.m. via ticketmaster.com.
"We’ve talked about having St. Paul and The Broken Bones out with us before — their sound is fantastic and certainly a natural fit for Wheels of Soul. And we enjoy the fun of touring and collaborating with another big band,” Derek Trucks said in a press release. “Adding Gabe to the bill was a no brainer. He’s insanely talented and it will be a privilege to be able to showcase what he can do.”
"It’s an honor to open for such talented and kind people," Paul Janeway of St. Paul and The Broken Bones added. "I hope they enjoy having us as much as we enjoy getting to see their show every night."
Past Wheels of Soul tour lineups have featured Sharon Jones & The Dap-Kings and Doyle Bramhall II (2015); Los Lobos and North Mississippi Allstars (2016); The Wood Brothers and Hot Tuna (2017); Drive-By Truckers and The Marcus King Band (2018); and Blackberry Smoke and Shovels and Rope (2019).
