An Evening with Jackson Browne

SINGER-songwriter Jackson Browne has announced his autumn tour dates to include a visit to Sage Gateshead on November 20. The tour, which crosses the US before arriving in the UK for five dates, ends with a sold-out gig at The Royal Albert Hall, and supports his new studio album, Standing In The Breach, scheduled for release in the UK on October 6.

The Californian singer rose to fame in the 1970s with his album Late For The Sky (1974). The title track was featured in Martin Scorsese’s film Taxi Driver.

In 1977 he released his biggest commercial success Running On Empty and one of the tracks, Nothing But Time, was recorded while the band were on a bus somewhere in New Jersey. In 2004, Browne was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Accompanying Jackson on the road this autumn are long-time bandmates Val McCallum (guitar), Mauricio Lewak (drums), Jeff Young (keyboards) and Bob Glaub(bass), with the addition of acclaimed multi-instrumentalist Greg Leisz (guitar, lap steel, pedal steel).

“This is my ideal band, with some of my favourite players, all of whom appear on the new CD, and whose combined gifts provide the musical foundation and emotional underpinnings of my new songs,” says Jackson. “I feel fortunate to have them out on the road for this tour.”

An Evening With Jackson Browne is at Sage Gateshead – Hall One, Thursday November 20. Box Office : 0191-443-4661
