Veteran guitar virtuoso Eric Johnson will be performing at the City National Grove of Anaheim this coming January, as part of his 2018 Ah Via Musicom North American tour. Tickets for the concert on Jan. 25 are on sale now and can be purchased by clicking here. Starting out on Jan. 23 in Tucson, the tour is named after his 1990 breakthrough album and will feature Johnson performing the LP in its entirety with his original band members from that era in Tommy Taylor and Kyle Brock.
In addition to revisiting one of his fan-favorite albums, Johnson is currently also celebrating the recent release of his new LP, Collage. Released earlier this week on Nov. 16, the new album features Eric performing five new original songs, in addition to covering various tracks made famous by his musical heroes, including Stevie Wonder, Jimi Hendrix, The Beatles, B.B. King and classic 1960s surf-rock outfit, The Ventures.
“It’s a work in progress,” Johnson can be heard saying about recording the new album live in a video shared to his Facebook earlier this week. “It’s just a new way that I want to start recording- to capture those moments and capture that human spirit.”
The remainder of the early 2018 tour keeps Johnson on the road until March 6. Some of the highlight scheduled performances on the winter run include upcoming shows at Denver’s Paramount Theatre on Feb. 9 and The National in Richmond, VA on March 1.
