Jackson Browne, the Grammy-nominated musician and humanitarian, brings his expressive music to the State Theatre in a new acoustic tour. Playing guitar and piano, he will perform two full sets of his beloved songs, known for their emotion, honesty and politics.
To celebrate the 40th anniversary of "Late For The Sky," originally released in September 1974, the album has been re-mastered and will be released later this year on 180gram vinyl (standard 33 1/3 RPM), all digital platforms, and also, on CD in a new eco-digipak in a partnership between Rhino Records and Inside Recordings. Jackson will also release a new studio album, the 13th of his career.
Browne has written and performed some of the most literate and moving songs in popular music and defined a genre of songwriting charged with honesty, emotion and personal politics. He was honored with induction into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2004 and the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame in 2007. Beyond his music, he is known for his advocacy on behalf of the environment, human rights and arts education. He's a co-founder of the groups Musicians United for Safe Energy (MUSE) and Nukefree.org.
Browne began his music career in the folk clubs of 1960s California. He was highly influential in the 1970s with his introspective, personal lyrics and laid-back folk-rock sound. His albums Solo Acoustic Vol. 1 and Solo Acoustic Vol. 2 both earned Grammy nominations with Rolling Stone giving Vol. 2 four stars. Music critic Anthony DeCurtis wrote, "Between songs, Browne speaks about his life and music with moving candor…this is Browne at his best, engaging his audience, his own experiences and the world around him, all in songs that will not lose their resonance any time soon."
