HUTCHINSON, Kan. — Hutchinson’s Historic Fox Theatre will present Blues Traveler on April 25 and tickets are going fast.
Blues Traveler has released a total of 14 studio albums, four of which have gone gold, three platinum, and one six-times platinum- selling more than 10 million combined units worldwide.
Over an illustrious career, Blues Traveler has played over 2,000 live shows in front of more than 30 million people.
"This will be their [Blues Traveler] first time performing at the Fox," Josh Davies, Fox Theatre Executive & Technical Director, said. "It is incredibly exciting to have a band like Blues Traveler perform on our stage, especially since they’ve made it the first stop on their current tour."
1994’s “Run-Around,” had the longest-charting radio single in Billboard history, which earned them a Grammy for “Best Rock Performance by a Duo or Group with Vocals.”
Their latest album Travelers Blues, by Round Hill Records, was released in 2021 and featured reimagined and recharged classics from the American blues songbook, as well as a few surprises.
The group’s first official blues album was nominated for a Grammy for “Best Traditional Blues Album” in 2022.
Their movie credits include “Blues Brothers 2000,” “Kingpin,” “Wildflowers,” and others.
A television favorite, they have been featured on “Saturday Night Live,” “Austin City Limits,” “VH1's Behind the Music” and they hold the record for the most appearances of any artist on “The Late Show with David Letterman."
