Tedeschi Trucks Band: Wheels of Soul Tour


Tedeschi Trucks Bands increasingly successful Wheels of Soul tour returns to the road in 2019 with a stop in downtown St. Petersburg at  Al Lang Stadium Sunday June 30 @ 6:30 pm  as part of the Al Lang Live Concert Series.  Joining them are special guests Blackberry Smoke and Shovels & Rope.


Unrivaled  in  their  blend  of  American  soul,  blues,  rock  and  country,  the  12-member  Tedeschi  Trucks  Band is  led  by  the  husband  and  wife  team  of  guitarist  Derek  Trucks and  vocalist/guitarist  Susan  Tedeschi who have curated  and  cultivated  this  family -friendly  experience  into  a  highlight  of  the  summer  concert  season.   


Each  year,  the  band  selects  kindred  artists  to  join  their  rolling  caravan,  turning  each  night  into  a  unique  collaborative  event  rather  than  simply  a  three-band  bill.  Attracting  larger  audiences  each  successive  year and  expanding  to  new  markets, critics  hail  the  Wheels  of  Soul  tour  as  “nothing  short  of  spectacular,”  (Saratogian),  celebrating  the  “life-affirming  power  of  music  played  with  passion,  skill  and  artistry,”  (St.  Louis  Post  Dispatch).   


“The  motivation  and  the  fun  of  Wheels  of  Soul  is  that  we  get  to  bring  that  spirit  of  musical  camaraderie  to  a  summer  crowd,”  says  Trucks. “Traveling,  being  outside,  playing  music  with  friends  new  and  old - we love the limitless  energy  of  this  tour.”
