Browne will be accompanied at his upcoming U.S. gigs by acclaimed multi-instrumentalist Greg Leisz, who has been a regular member of Jackson’s touring band in recent years.

First up for Browne is a short tour of Japan during the second half of October. The Rock & Roll Hall of Famer also will take part in Little Feat‘s 2018 Ramble on the Island event in Trelawny, Jamaica, which is scheduled for January 11-15, 2018.
