Raitt is coming down from a successful high in 2022 and 2023; she headlined 75 concerts in 2022 and 50 in 2023 traveling across the U.S., Australia, the UK, Scotland, Ireland, and Canada. She is now ready to entertain the masses again with the 'Just Like That' tour. Recently, she won three Grammys at the 65th Grammy Awards and an Americana Music award with "Just Like That" winning Song of the Year at both ceremonies.

Raitt has solidified herself as a chart-topping music enthusiast; however, she has also committed herself to the preservation of the planet and social activism. She joined the environmental movement, shouting her support for forest and water protection via her performances since the mid-70s. She is the founding member of Musicians United for Safe Energy, an organization that continues to promote safe energy, environmental protection, humanitarian rights, and music education.

Additional Performers

Joining Raitt on the tour will be James Hunter and Maia Sharp. According to MOJO Magazine, James Hunter is considered "The United Kingdom's Greatest Soul Singer." He has a Grammy nomination for Best Traditional Blues Album and an Americana Award for Best New/Emerging artist. He and his band have shared the stage with musical legends Aretha Franklin, BB King, Etta James, and Van Morrison. Maia Sharp has also been in the presence of legends throughout her career. The talented songwriter has written songs for Bonnie Raitt, Trisha Yearwood, Cher, and Art Garfunkel.
