Hugh Laurie Announce Tour and PBS Special

08/01/2013
.
Hugh Laurie, best known for his role as the title character in the hit FOX TV show House, will be launching a North American tour in October in support of his new album and he will be the subject of a PBS special this week.

The North American tour is scheduled to launch on October 13th in Nashville at the Schermerhorn Symphony Center and will conclude on November 3rd in Atlanta at the Buckhead Theater.

The North American tour will be in support of Laurie's sophomore album, "Didn't It Rain," which will be released in North America on August 6th and like his debut album, "Let Them Talk," it shows the British star's affinity for the blues.

This Saturday, August 3rd, Laurie will be featured in the PBS special "Live On The Queen Mary," which will feature Laurie performing on the Queen Mary in Long Beach, CA and will include songs from his debut album as well as his new effort.

He will be backed on the tour and the PBS special by The Copper Bottom Band, which features David Piltch (bass), Vincent Henry (horns), Elizabeth Lea (trombone), Jean McClain (vocals), and Gaby Moreno (vocals), Herman Matthews (drums) and Mark Goldenberg (guitars).

Laurie recorded his new album, "Didn't It Rain," at Ocean Way Studio in Los Angeles in January and he once again teamed up with producer Joe Henry (Allen Toussaint, Bonnie Raitt, Billy Bragg) who produced his first album.

"Didn't It Rain," includes songs dating back to early pioneers W.C. Handy ("St Louis Blues")and Jelly Roll Morton ("I Hate A Man Like You") to more recent artists such as Dr. John ("Wild Honey") and Alan Price of The Animals ("Changes").
