Tour celebrates 60+ years of being a road dog
Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Dave Mason has announced a fall 2022 tour that celebrates more than 60 years of being a road dog. The 13-date trek runs the west coast starting Saturday, October 29th in Thousand Oaks, CA, with stops in Berkeley, Napa, and others before wrapping November 20th in Tuscon. Mason will perform back to back nights in Seattle on November 12th and 13th.
The fall run follows a successful summer run that criss-crossed the country. Mason is thrilled to get back out on the road to see his friends and fans.
“There is nothing quite like performing live. I love it!” exclaims Mason.
Joining Mason on this run are longtime band members Johnne Sambataro on guitar and vocals, Alvino Bennett on drums, and exciting new additions Bill Mason on keyboard and vocals, and Ray Cardwell on bass and vocals. This new lineup will perform Mason’s most loved and iconic songs as well as deep tracks and fans can always count on a few surprises.
In 2020 Mason reimagined his iconic album Alone Together with the release of Alone Together Again. The album is available through Mason’s online store, and on all digital platforms, via Shelter Records.
Written when he was only 20 years old, Mason is likely best known for “Feelin’ Alright?,” one of the most beloved and covered rock anthems since its release in 1968. The timeless song continues to be a powerful and enduring moment of rock and roll history, featured in dozens of films and TV commercials as well as interpretations by artists as diverse as Joe Cocker, Three Dog Night, Grand Funk Railroad, ELO, Coldplay, The 5th Dimension and so many more. A new version of this classic was re-recorded and released in July 2020 featuring Mason alongside Mick Fleetwood, Sammy Hagar, Michael McDonald and The Doobie Brothers: John McFee, Tom Johnston, John Cowan and Pat Simmons.
Mason has been respectfully called a musical “gunslinger” for a reason as he’s worked with some of the biggest names in music, his trademark guitar licks and musical touches are all over beloved classic hits. Early next year will see the release of his first ever autobiography Only You Know & I Know, where Mason will share some of the great untold tales in rock and roll. Mason has a unique and rare viewpoint as he; recorded an album with Mama Cass, played rhythm guitar on “All Along the Watchtower” with Jimi Hendrix, was a founding member of Traffic, recorded with Paul McCartney , George Harrison and The Rolling Stones, was part of Fleetwood Mac for a spell, as well as a guitar designer and a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee.
