Steve Winwood Announces Over A Dozen 2018 Theater Dates

Steve Winwood has added over a dozen new dates to his itinerary. Winwood kicks off the headlining gigs on February 22nd at Chicago’s Chicago Theatre and wraps the jaunt down on March 15th in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania at Bethlehem Event Center. In September, Steve Winwood released his latest live collection, Winwood Greatest Hits Live, which features healthy doses of his timeless work with Traffic, Blind Faith, the Spencer Davis Group — alongside his own classic solo hits. 

Although any Steve Winwood concert is packed with some of the most breathtaking Hammond B-3 organ work you’ll ever be lucky enough to witness — many new fans walk away breathless by his guitar chops: [“I don’t see myself as a virtuoso by any means. I’m very interested in the art of accompaniment. I think that’s a very important thing and often overlooked. And I grew up listening to great blues guitarists and that had an influence on me, so I was able to improvise in that style, as well. And also, I sort of grew up playing various forms of jazz, as well, and y’know, started out learning ’30s and ’40s dance music, which I used to play with my dad.”] SOUNDCUE (:29 OC: . . . with my dad)
