Vince Launches Major Tour
Vince Gill is getting ready to embark on a major U.S. concert tour, A Special Acoustic Evening With Vince Gill, beginning Aug. 18 and running through Nov. 24.
Vince will be performing with only two accompanying musicians, pianist Pete Wasner and percussionist Billy Thomas, giving each show a more intimate feel.
“In 2006 and 2007, I toured with a 17-piece band so I could reproduce the sounds of These Days, the new album I’d made,” Vince explains. “This year, I wanted to do something really different. Recently I saw James Taylor on his tour. It was a kind of one-man band show, with just him, a piano player and all those great songs. I really enjoyed watching it and I knew I would enjoy performing in that setting as well.” For the complete tour schedule, go to vincegill.com.
