Jackson Browne lines up June shows; ex-CSN touring guitarist Shane Fontayne to join backing group

Courtesy of Jackson BrowneAfter lining up a previously reported series of U.S. concerts on the East Coast in May, Jackson Browne will head to the Midwest in June for more dates. The newly announced run of shows begins June 5 in Cincinnati and is scheduled through a June 25 gig in St. Louis.

Browne will performing with a full band at all of his scheduled 2018 concerts, but the June dates will feature a new addition to his backing group: guitarist Shane Fontayne. Fontayne produced, played guitar on and co-wrote songs on Graham Nash‘s 2016 solo album, This Path Tonight, and accompanied the folk-rock legend on his last several tours.

Before that, Shane played guitar in Crosby, Stills & Nash‘s touring band for several years, and also played with Bruce Springsteen during his 1992-1993 tour, after the Boss disbanded the E Street Band.

Tickets to Browne’s June concerts go on sale to the general public this Thursday, February 15, at 10 a.m. local time, while advance tickets will be available beginning February 14 at 10 a.m. local time. Visit JacksonBrowne.com for more details.

Browne’s upcoming 2018 itinerary also includes an early-spring tour of Australia that he’ll follow with a couple of April concerts in Hawaii. In addition, Jackson will headline two benefit shows, on February 24 and 25, in Temecula, California, that will raise funds for Milton “Quiltman” Sahme, a Native American musician who lost his family home last year in the wildfires that struck the Warm Springs Indian Reservation in Oregon.
