Bonnie Raitt Live in Edmonton June 17th 2017

on June 22, 2017 No comments


Saturday night I went to the Bonnie Raitt show at the Jubilee Auditorium here in Edmonton. This was my second time seeing Bonnie in concert. The first time I saw here was in 1998 when she opened for Eric Clapton here. In my opinion she stole the show, I always said I would go see her perform again. Well, almost twenty years later I got my chance, this time with her headlining on her “Dig In Deep Tour“. And she didn’t disappoint.

Playing an almost two hour show, at the age of 68 Bonnie hasn’t lost a step at all, her voice sounded great as did her slide guitar playing and she looks damn good as well. The second song of the evening was an Inxs cover of the song “Need You Tonight” from her latest album Dig In Deep. She pulled out a few cover songs on this night including a B.B. King and John Prine song. Both songs sounded wicked, Bonnie sings with a lot of heart and soul. During the encore she covered the Talking Heads song “Burning Down The House” which sounded great as well. Bonnie’s back up band of musicians were stellar too. Of course it wasn’t all cover songs, her own songs went over well too. All and all I thought it was an awesome show. Good times!!!
