John Hiatt & the Combo Announce Special London Show
Plus special guests
London, for immediate release
Legendary songwriter John Hiatt hits the UK in November with his band, fresh from a string of critically acclaimed US and European live shows in support of his current new album ‘The Open Road’ out now on New West Records.
John Hiatt & the Combo will play a very special show in London at O2 Shepherds Bush Empire on 15th November this year. Tickets go on sale on Friday 23rd July at 9am from www.livenation.co.uk
Looking at life through the rearview mirror was the inspiration for John Hiatt’s brand new album, The Open Road. The legendary songwriter’s 19th studio album is classic Hiatt, picking up the tempo and returning to rock following his previous critically acclaimed Same Old Man. Backed by his touring band, (Kenny Blevins on drums, Patrick O’Hearn on bass and Doug Lancio on guitars), the songs are inspired by life on the road, without looking back. “All the other years, my songs are about coming home,” Hiatt says. But within these 11 new songs, home is never the destination.
Hiatt takes the new songs on the road plus expect some of the favorites too. Hiatt has written songs covered by a multitude of artists in a wide variety of genres including Bob Dylan, Rosanne Cash, Willie Nelson, Jewel and Bonnie Raitt, who most famously recorded “Thing Called Love.”
On The Open Road he showcases both his lyrical and musical talent with his blues driven, rock songs including the title track and “Haulin’.” Hiatt produced The Open Road himself after recording with his band in his garage-turned-studio.
