Jonny Lang
Submitted by Johan Wippsson on 2017-08-07
Jonny Lang Extends Signs World Tour - 25 North American Shows Added

Jonny Lang’s brand new studio album, Signs, will be released in North America on September 8th via SayRai / Concord Records.  The album (his sixth major label release) is his first in four years. The European release for Signs will be on August 25 via Provogue Records / Mascot Label Group.
The new album is available to pre-order here:  All pre-orders will include both “Bitter End” and “Make It Move” as instant gratification tracks.
This morning, twenty-five new shows in North America have been added to Jonny’s World Tour in support of Signs.  Tickets for most of these shows will go on sale this week.  VIP tickets will be available starting this Tuesday via
Anyone who originally discovered Jonny Lang through his searing instrumental work will revel in the huge guitar tones and go for broke solos on Signs, while those who have appreciated his growth as an honest and passionate songwriter will find that honesty and passion unabated. Though he long ago left blues purism behind, Lang has never abandoned its spirit of universal catharsis through the relating of personal trials. Signs reaffirms his commitment to the blues and the guitar without sacrificing the modern approach that has made him such a singular artist.  
It is hard to believe that at only 36 years old Jonny Lang has already had a successful career for two decades. Easier to believe when you learn he released his first platinum record at 15—an age when many young people are just beginning to play music. Lie to Me revealed a talent that transcended the crop of blues prodigies floating around in the late Nineties. No flashy re-hasher of classic blues licks, even at that early age Lang was a full-blown artist with a style of his own. Also, setting Lang apart from the wunderkind crowd was a 15-year-old voice that sounded like a weathered soul shouter. Actual life experience was yet to come, and has been subsequently chronicled in a series of five uniformly excellent recordings. 
Since the release of his debut album, Grammy Award winning Jonny Lang has built a reputation as one of the best live performers and guitarists of his generation. The path Lang has been on has brought him the opportunity to support or perform with some of the most respected legends in music.  He has shared the stage with everyone from The Rolling Stones and B.B. King to Aerosmith and Buddy Guy, who he continues to tour with today.
Jack Broadbent and Guthrie Brown have been confirmed as direct support on a majority of the appearances scheduled for August through October in North America. Both artists will appear solo.  For appearances in Spokane on November 27 through January as announced below, support will be announced in the coming weeks.
Guthrie Brown is a Nashville transplant by way of Montana who began playing the guitar at age six. By the age of seventeen, he left high school for Nashville to pursue his dream of being a professional recording artist. Now at twenty-two Guthrie has toured the country relentlessly, signed a publishing deal with BMG and is currently recording his first full length album with GRAMMY® Award winning producer, Jacquire King (Kings of Leon, Dawes, Of Monsters and Men, James Bay).  For more information  
Jack Broadbent was hailed “The new master of the slide guitar” by the Montreux Jazz Festival, and “The real thang” by the legendary Bootsy Collins.  He has spent the past year wowing international audiences with his unique blend of virtuosic acoustic and slide guitar, and poignant folk and blues inspired vocals. Born and raised in rural England, Jack grew up listening to artists such as John Lee Hooker, Peter Green, Robert Johnson, Neil Young and Joni Mitchell, to name a few. These legends of rock, blues, roots and folk influenced his distinctive song writing, singing and performance style, which have a depth and heart that defies strict musical genres. Broadbent‘s performances exude a warmth, humor and energy that has electrified audiences worldwide. For more detail: or
