TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND ANNOUNCES 2021 BEACON THEATRE RESIDENCY IN NYC with Seven SHOWS BETWEEN SEPTEMBER 30 AND OCTOBER 9 WILL ALL BE FULL CAPACITY. LAYLA REVISITED (LIVE AT LOCKN’) BY TEDESCHI TRUCKS BAND FEATURING TREY ANASTASIO OUT JULY 16 ON FANTASY RECORDS.
Tedeschi Trucks Band announces the return of their Beacon Theatre residency. Proudly proclaiming, “We’re Back,” these will be some of the first performances featuring the full, reunited 12-piece band since February of 2020. The shows will be presented by Live Nation and will take place on September 30, October 1, 2, 5, 6, 8, and 9. Tickets for all seven shows will go on sale on Friday, June 18 at 10:00AM EST.
Since their first performance at The Beacon in 2011, Tedeschi Trucks Band have played 39 sold-out shows at the legendary theatre. These Beacon Theatre residencies offer the multi-talented, Grammy Award-winning group an opportunity to explore an especially large range of musical territory, often exceeding 100 different songs across the run. Guest sit-ins in the past have made these shows extra special.
The 2021 edition will additionally feature support acts Nels Cline: Consentrik Quartet on September 30, Anders Osborn on October 5 and Jorma Kaukonen on October 6. All other shows will feature two full sets by Tedeschi Trucks Band.

Ahead of the July 16 release of Layla Revisited (Live At LOCKN’), the new live album featuring Trey Anastasio, Tedeschi Trucks Band also shared their performance of “Little Wing.” What was initially a tribute to a recently departed Jimi Hendrix becomes, in the hands of TTB, one to both Hendrix and Duane Allman. It’s a blues rock symphony that finds Derek Trucks, Trey Anastasio, and Doyle Bramhall II standing on the shoulders of giants, finding new seams in a singular composition.
Recorded on August 24, 2019 at the LOCKN’ Festival in Arrington, VA, Layla Revisited (Live At LOCKN’) captures an enthralling surprise performance that finds the Tedeschi Trucks Band — alongside Anastasio and Bramhall II — paying tribute to Layla and Other Assorted Love Songs. The cosmic connections to Eric Clapton and Duane Allman’s 1970 masterpiece run deep: the original was not only released on the day of Susan Tedeschi’s birth, it inspired Chris and Debbie Trucks to name their firstborn son Derek. Decades later, Derek Trucks would enjoy a fifteen-year tenure as a member of The Allman Brothers Band, and tour extensively with Clapton. The resulting album is pure kismet: A lively, adventurous interpretation of one of the 20th century’s most singular rock & roll recordings.

This Friday, June 11, Tedeschi Trucks commence their Fireside Live tour, a series of small ensemble, limited-capacity shows inspired by their mid-pandemic Fireside livestreams. The shows will be the first fully live public performances for the group since February 2020, and come on the heels of the recent postponement of their annual summer Wheels of Soul Tour to next year (2022). Venues will include a mix of small or reduced-capacity outdoor amphitheaters, drive-ins, and pod set-ups, all of which are COVID-19 compliant and will take precautions to ensure the safety of fans, staff, band and crew. From the Beacon Theatre dates onward, the full 12-piece Tedeschi Trucks Band will be back on the road for select dates playing to full capacity audiences. Full dates below.
