Jackson Browne Rolls Out A Dozen Midwest Dates

Jackson Browne has just added a 12-city Midwest run to take place in June. In addition to a Temecula, California date later this month and a pair of April shows in Honolulu — Browne and his band will be off the road until they kick things off on May 2nd in Richmond, Virginia for a string of East Coast concerts. The newly announced Midwest dates hit Cincinnati, Ohio; Sterling Heights, Michigan; Indianapolis, Indiana; Milwaukee and Bayfield, Wisconsin; Minneapolis, Minnesota; Des Moines, Iowa; and Lincoln, Nebraska.

Backing Browne on the road will be longtime Graham Nash touring partner, guitarist Shane Fontayne, bassist Bob Glaub, drummer Mauricio Lewak, keyboardist Jeff Young, backing vocalists Alethea Mills and Chavonne Stewart, along with the acclaimed multi-instrumentalist Greg Leisz covering guitar, lap steel, and pedal steel duties.

  • In addition to his more recent work, Jackson Browne’s recent shows also include such classics as “Boulevard,” “Running On Empty,” and his breakthrough hit “Doctor My Eyes.” Browne says that “Doctor My Eyes” was the result of writing on a broken piano: [“The piano had a broken key — you’d see the hammer hit the key, and it would bounce back and hit it again. So every time you pressed down once — ‘bonk’ — it would go ‘bonk-onk.’ And if you did it in the right tempo, it’d go ‘da-gong-a-dong-a-dong-a-dong-a-dong.’ (Laughs) It was kind of trippy. Anyway, so, I was playing around with that, and I wrote it — I wrote it based on that one little sound thing.”] SOUNDCUE (:18 OC: . . . little sound thing)
