Jackson Browne Announce Second Leg for His Solo Acoustic Tour
The Canadian itinerary runs through April 18, and is followed by several Midwestern dates in the US.
Jackson Browne's 2011 solo acoustic tour begins its first leg next month in California. Playing guitar and piano, he will perform songs from his entire body of work, with varying set lists each night.
One of the many guitars Jackson will be bringing on the road this time is the just-released Gibson Acoustic Jackson Browne Signature acoustic guitar. The handmade instrument, inspired by Gibson's legendary 1930s-era Roy Smeck model, is the first guitar to bear Jackson Browne's name.
The intimacy of Jackson's solo performances has been captured on two live albums—the Grammy-nominated Jackson Browne—Solo Acoustic, Vol. 1 (2005), and Jackson Browne—Solo Acoustic, Vol. 2 (2008), both released on Inside Recordings. In Rolling Stone's four-star review of Vol. 2, 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."
