After selling out much of her North American tour to date, Bonnie Raitt is looking forward to returning down-under with special guest Jackie Bristow, a Kiwi-born US-Based Singer-Songwriter, in support of her 20th album, Dig In Deep. 

Throughout her 2016 tour, Raitt's performances have garnered praise, with Billboard complimenting her "magnificent form: confident, engaging and sexy while singing and playing her bottleneck slide guitar with searing soulfulness" at one of two sold-out shows at New York City's Beacon Theatre.

Raitt was featured on the most recent broadcast of CBS Sunday Morning in a career-spanning profile highlighted by an in-depth interview and live performance footage from her recent sold out show at The Orpheum Theatre in Boston.

All profits from her concerts will be donated to the Westpac Rescue Helicopter.
