PNC Pavilion

I spoke a couple of hours ago by phone with the great guitarist Derek Trucks who's coming into town at the PNC Pavilion on Sunday, July 22nd with the Tedeschi Trucks Band along with the Drive-By Truckers & the Marcus King Band.

We talked about how the recent heat wave has affected the band and their instruments, and how this year's tour differs from last year's with the Wood Brothers and Hot Tuna.

Susan Tedeschi is an acclaimed blues singer/guitarist who is touring again this summer with the Tedeschi Trucks Band, an amalgamation of her band, her husband Derek Truck's band, plus other favorite musicians. 

After a triumphant appearance with the Cincinnati Ballet in April, guitar virtuoso and former Cincinnatian Peter Frampton is coming back to town with a few of his friends: BB King and Sonny Landreth. They’ll be in concert at the PNC Pavilion on August 14 with a show called Frampton’s Guitar Circus Tour, and he spends a few minutes with Brian O’Donnell to talk about the music and these guitar legends.
