Gary Clark Jr. adds new dates to spring/summer 2017 tour

Guitarist, singer and songwriter Gary Clark Jr. is making the most of his upcoming trek across North America. Clark has added a bunch of new live dates that pad out an already-packed touring itinerary this spring and summer. The recently added shows include stops in Toronto, Las Vegas, Aspen, Colo., Glen Allen, Va., Wilmington, N.C., Asheville, N.C., Atlanta, Birmingham, Ala., St. Charles, Iowa, Hampton Beach, N.H., Asbury Park, N.J., Grand Rapids, Mich., Milwaukee and Tulsa, Okla. Find Clark’s full list of upcoming dates below.

Clark, who recently turned 33, is touring behind his second live album, Live North America 2016, released earlier this month. The album contains a generous helping of songs from his then-current release, The Story of Sonny Boy Slim, as well as tracks from his 2012 major-label debut, including “You Saved Me” and “When My Train Pulls In.” Singer Leon Bridges and his saxophonist Jeff Dazey, who toured Australia with Clark last year, join on the Sonny Boy Slim cut “Shake.”

“Can I tell you something? I feel like people can't perform live,” Clark told InStyle during at stop at SXSW earlier this month. “This is what we do. I grew up here in Austin, Texas—the Live Music Capital of the World—and the musicians that are here are real musicians. I want to represent for that. It's time to appreciate live music. Don't call yourself a musician if you're not playing music.”

In September, Clark is scheduled to join Eric Clapton for a series of dates in New York and Los Angeles. Clapton invited Clark to join him at his Crossroads Guitar Festival in 2010—before Clark was even signed to a major—and Clark and Jimmie Vaughan both appeared onstage with Clapton at a Madison Square Garden two weeks ago to jam on a cover of Bo Diddley’s “Before You Accuse Me.”
