Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band announces 2018 Australian tour

For the first time in six years.

Virtuoso guitarist Kenny Wayne Shepherd has announced he’ll be returning to Australia in October for an east coast tour, marking his first run Down Under in six years. 

The Louisiana-born songsmith burst onto the scene at just 16 years old, after he signed his first record deal and released his 1995 debut album Ledbetter Heights.

Famed for shining a light on the rich blues of the past and adding his own modern twist, Shepherd has forged a mammoth career that spans more than two decades. His latest studio album Lay It On Down dropped in August 2017 and debuted at #1 on the Billboard Blues Chart, proving beyond any shadow of a doubt that Shepherd is a legend of his craft. 

Fellow blues legend Ash Grunwald will join the Kenny Wayne Shepherd Band tour as support, check out the dates below.
