The bluesy, jam-rock veterans will kick things off October 11 in Ridgefield, Connecticut, finishing the 25-date excursion with a November 19 show in San Diego. Ticket information is available via the band’s official website.

Frontman John Popper says, “Three decades and I am still surprised when we play and find some rich new musical vein to tap…Thirty years since a bunch of loud boys embarked on an adventure that took them around the world and made them a family that has not ceased growing to this day. Thirty years later and I am still so very grateful.”

Led by Popper and guitarist Chad Kinchla, Blues Traveler formed in Princeton, New Jersey, in the mid-1980s. They’ve released a dozen studio albums and sold more than 10 million discs worldwide. They also earned a 1986 Grammy for the track “Run Around.” Popper has also performed with the likes of Foo Fighters, Grateful Dead, Allman Brothers, Pearl Jam and Dave Matthews Band.

In addition to the anniversary tour, Blues Traveler will begin recording a new album next month that’s expected to see the light of day in early 2018.
