After 21 fantastic nights of music in 16 different states across the country, Tedeschi Trucks Band’s third annual “Wheels of Soul” tour is now in the rearview. The summer 2017 iteration of Tedeschi Trucks Band’s multi-band tour proved to be the biggest and most successful “Wheels of Soul” voyage to date. With support from “masters of soulful folk” The Wood Brothers and “psychedelic-blues institution” Hot Tuna, husband-and-wife bandleaders Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi and their well-oiled 12-piece outfit consistently shattered personal records throughout the tour.Over the course of their month-long run, TTB sold out shows in 10 of the 20 cities visited, brought in thousands of fans to large outdoor venues like Saratoga Performing Arts Center and Simsbury Meadows Performing Arts Center, and performed more than 70 different songs—from time-tested originals to covers of classics by the likes of the Derek & Eric Clapton, Miles Davis, Jefferson Airplane and beyond—continuing to affirm their stature as one of the most exciting, soulful live bands on the road today.In addition to Tedeschi Trucks Band’s ever-increasing abilities as a cohesive unit, the outfit’s third “Wheels of Soul” outing further cemented the annual tour’s reputation as a unique and unmatched collaborative summer musical experience. On multiple occasions throughout the tour, Derek and Susan welcomed their supporting bands onstage to team up on songs by everyone from B.B. King to Paul McCartney to Jefferson Airplane.The collaborations came to a peak at the band’s sold-out two-night run at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheatre in Colorado. In addition to The Wood Brothers and Hot Tuna, Tedeschi Trucks band was joined over the course of the weekend by renowned jam scene elder statesmen like John Medeski of Medeski Martin & Wood and John Bell of Widespread Panic.

That list includes Dereks’ uncle Butch Trucks and Gregg Allman (both of whom Derek played for many years in the Allman Brothers Band) as well as “grandfather of the jam scene” Col. Bruce Hampton, who was sharing the stage with Trucks and scores of other musicians when he drew his final breath during the encore of his 70th birthday celebration in May. The band used the “Wheels of Soul” tour as a vehicle to cope with these losses, breaking out Allmans live staples like “Whipping Post,” “Ain’t Wastin No More Time,” and “Statesboro Blues” and dedicating a cover of Conway Twitty’s “Don’t Cry No More” to Col. Bruce during their performance at Atlanta’s Fox Theatre, where Hampton gave his now-legendary final performance.“Performing is healing, for everyone on stage,” explains Trucks, “It’s important to get out and play; there is definitely something cathartic about it. You can feel it in the audience, too. People like Bruce and Butch and Gregg, they meant a lot to a lot of people. When you acknowledge those things and play that music, it helps a lot of people in a lot of ways.”In addition to paying their respects to the fallen greats, the band also dedicated a performance of “Song For You” to their keyboardist/multi-instrumentalist Kofi Burbridge, who was on leave from the band for the extent of the tour after suffering a heart attack earlier this summer but is expected to make a full recovery.“Wheels of Soul” 2017 was also successful in its charitable efforts throughout the summer. As part of an initiative with the tour’s nonprofit partner, Craft for Causes, local craft brewers created a limited edition “Wheels of Soul”-themed beer in their taprooms for each of the tour’s stops. Proceeds from the sale of these local brews benefitted the Mr. Hollands Opus Foundation, a national nonprofit that works to promote and preserve music education and provide musical instruments to underprivileged youths. 40 different breweries hosted launch parties for their special “Wheels of Soul” brew in the month leading up to the performances, sporting clever names like “Butch’s Brown Ale,” “All That I Need,” and “Harmonious.” The Crafts for Causes van followed behind the tour busses throughout the run, driving 14,500 miles and covering 42 states, visiting 39 different breweries along the way.Tedeschi Trucks Band will now take a brief hiatus from the road before heading back out for their 2017 Fall Tour beginning on September 15th in Birmingham, AL. The tour encompasses the band’s annual residency at the Beacon Theatre, which will include their milestone 25th performance at the storied Manhattan venue on Wednesday, October 11th. The rest of the band’s remaining schedule for the year includes performances in L.A., San Diego, Phoenix, and Portland, as well as a 2-night run in Seattle and a 3-night stand in Susan’s native Boston to cap a busy 2017. The band is also currently in the studio working on material for their next studio album, the follow-up to their acclaimed 2016 studio release, Let Me Get By, which Live For Live Music ranked among the best albums of 2016 in a year-end poll.You can see a list of upcoming Tedeschi Trucks Band tour dates below.

ENGLAND bowler James Anderson says he is feeling “a bit anxious” because of the impact coronavirus could have on his professional and personal life.A possible rescheduling of the cricket season will be discussed today.The 2020 County Championship is due to begin on April 12, while England are set to play West Indies in a three-Test series starting on June 4.“Cricket and sport is not the be all and end all but it is my livelihood, it’s all I know,” Anderson, 37, said.“There’s a chance we might not even bowl a ball this summer.”The England and Wales Cricket Board has said all options are being looked at, including postponements and playing games behind closed doors.England’s tour of Sri Lanka was called off last week, while England and Nottinghamshire batsman Alex Hales and six Surrey men’s players are all self-isolating.Hampshire chairman Rod Bransgrove said one contingency may be “playing no cricket at all” this season.Anderson, England’s leading wicket-taker in Tests, last played in the second Test against South Africa in January before a rib injury ruled him out of the rest of the series.He had been left out of the squad for England’s cancelled two-Test tour of Sri Lanka in the hope of being fully fit for the start of the summer.“The season is unlikely to start,” Anderson said, speaking to the BBC’s Tailenders podcast.“It’s still a little bit hazy as to what’s going to happen.“I feel a little bit anxious. Just the not knowing is giving me a bit of anxiety; also trying to keep a young family healthy. I am trying to stay calm, follow the guidelines.“My wife’s mum and dad live in Spain so they are in lockdown. They are in the age group where there are concerns. The anxiety is building up in our house because of not knowing what will happen in the next few months.” (BBC Sport)

“It can turn quickly, but a lot of it is out of our control,” Kupchak said. “I’d love to be able to put together a young team that can win 55 games next year, but it’s not that easy.”That uncertainty recently prompted Magic Johnson to criticize vice president of player personnel Jim Buss, including not giving Kupchak enough autonomy to run the Lakers’ basketball operations. “I have the same authority I had with Dr. Buss,” Kupchak said, referring to the Lakers’ former owner that passed away in February 2013. “Jerry West had the same authority as Dr. Buss. I have that same authority with Jimmy. Jimmy and I work very closely together. He does not make decisions in a vacuum.”Kupchak then explained why he found the criticism unfair.“Any decision that has or has not happened in the last two or three years that people have a problem with, I was involved or leading the way,” Kupchak said. “If there’s criticism, then it should be directed at me as well.”The Lakers have taken plenty of criticism for various moves. Following Phil Jackson’s retirement in 2011, the Lakers hired Mike Brown to coach instead of keeping assistant Brian Shaw. After firing Brown five games into the 2012-13 season, the Lakers chose Mike D’Antoni despite having a sitdown interview with Jackson, who won five of his 11 NBA championships here. After LeBron James, Carmelo Anthony and Pau Gasol rejected the Lakers’ interest last summer, they settled on mostly role players on one-year deals to secure financial flexibility for future offseasons. Yet, Kupchak downplayed the need to talk with Johnson about his criticism.“We have a really good relationship,” Kupchak said of Johnson, who remains an unpaid vice president with the Lakers. “He wants nothing more than this franchise to be on top.”Yet, it remains up for debate how long that process will take. The Lakers want to win as many NBA championships as possible. So does Kobe Bryant.But Lakers general manager Mitch Kupchak revealed on Friday he will place higher priority this offseason on protecting the team’s financial flexibility and youth than ensuring Bryant a roster equipped to win an NBA championship for the 2015-16 season. Then, Bryant will return following a season-ending right shoulder injury in what could conclude a storied 20-year NBA career.“We have to start a new run, and that’s definitely going to include Kobe next year,” Kupchak said. “But to jeopardize the next five or seven years and bring in old veterans that make a lot of money, just to win one more year, because that’s Kobe’s last year or could be his last year, I’m not sure that fits into doing it the right way.”Bryant recently described the Lakers’ front office to GQ Magazine as “hell-bent about having a championship-caliber team next season, as am I.” Yet, Lakers coach Byron Scott believes Bryant will understand the Lakers’ long-term needs even if it comes at the expense of his sixth NBA title. Newsroom GuidelinesNews TipsContact UsReport an Error “He was so much more patient than what everybody was saying,” Scott said of coaching Bryant. “That says a lot about him and the respect for the organization and his willingness to get us back on the right track. He knows it’s going take a year or two.”Scott also repeated Bryant could play after his $25 million contract expires following next season, presuming he stays healthy and the Lakers upgrade their roster. “He has to get back where he feels he can perform at a high level,” Kupchak said of Bryant, whom the Lakers said will return in nine months. “To really look beyond that, from our point of view, is not realistic.”The Lakers have enough cap space this summer to sign one max-level free agent, but they could face challenges plucking Marc Gasol from Memphis, LaMarcus Aldridge from Portland, Kevin Love from Cleveland or Goran Dragic from Miami. Yet, the Lakers can avoid sending their first-round pick to Phoenix as part of the Steve Nash trade if it lands in the top five. The Lakers will have a mid first-round pick from Houston stemmed from the Jeremy Lin trade. The Lakers also have rookies Julius Randle and Jordan Clarkson to develop.Scott believed the Lakers could field a championship-caliber roster next season, conceding he hopes the rebuilding involves a “sprint.” But Scott then added he’s a “realist” and predicted “it will takes us a few years”
