Critically-acclaimed R&B and soul revivalist James Hunter will lend his unparalleled vocal talent and on-stage swagger to the Bonnie Raitt Just Like That... tour as he joins as the special guest for select Spring dates and the entire Fall tour. During these highly-anticipated shows, Raitt will be celebrating the success of her 2022 album Just Like That..., which won three Grammy awards at the 65th Annual ceremony last February and an Americana Music award this past September (making "Just Like That" the first composition to win Song of the Year at both ceremonies).

Tickets for the Bonnie Raitt "Just Like That..." tour with Special Guest James Hunter are on sale now at www.bonnieraitt.com.

Hunter will support Raitt starting May 29 in Baltimore at The Lyric through June 29 in St Louis at the Stifel Theatre before joining the entire Fall tour from September 6 to November 25. No stranger to the road, Hunter has been captivating audiences with his electrifying live shows with authentic rhythms and blues for close to 40 years. His six-piece band, which includes a stand-up horn section, has toured the world from tiny clubs to large festivals and has also shared the stage supporting such icons as Aretha Franklin, B.B. King, Etta James, and Van Morrison.

"We're very much looking forward to kicking off the night for the great Bonnie Raitt, so bring your dancing shoes and we'll get you warmed up for a memorable evening of live music," said Hunter.

But there is more! Daptone Records shares the news that in December 2023, Hunter returned to the recording studio with Bosco Mann (aka Gabriel Roth), producing what will be their fifth studio collaboration and the seventh studio album since the breakout release of People Gonna Talk, which earned Hunter a Grammy nomination. The release date is not yet announced, but fans can expect two new singles to drop in April.

In support of new music, Hunter has announced headline shows in Texas, New York, Los Angeles, and London. Tickets will go on sale on Friday February 16th at 10am local time at www.jameshuntermusic.com.

During their performances, fans can expect to hear hits from Hunter's first six albums, including The Hard Way (Hear Music), Minute by Minute (Fantasy), Whatever it Takes (Daptone) and Nick of Time (Daptone), as well as a few new songs from their forthcoming seventh record.
