Bonnie Raitt
The last time Tampa Bay was supposed to witness the power of blues icon Bonnie Raitt was in 2018, on a co-headlining tour stop with James Taylor. Unfortunately, she had to pull out of the tour due to a health complication. Don’t worry, she’s totally fine, and Raitt finally returns to Tampa Bay this weekend for a show at Clearwater's Ruth Eckerd Hall on Saturday, Nov. 19.

The 72-year-old performer—who was just nominated for multiple Grammys including one for Song of the Sear—has had a barrage of special guests join in on her seemingly endless 2022 run of shows, including Mavis Staples, Lucinda Williams, and NRBQ. Grammy-award winner Mark Cohn opens the closer for a tour in support of Raitt’s latest album, Just Like That, which emerged in April and is also up for a few Grammy's next year.
