Out of The Blues Tour 2021
GRAMMY-winning artist Boz Scaggs brings his “Out of The Blues Tour 2021” to the Bank of America Performing Arts Center on September 23. For over 50 years, the multi-genre artist has been making rock and roll, jazz, R&B, and pop music hits. Tickets go on sale Friday, July 9 at 10AM on Ticketmaster.com.
In celebration of his album Out of The Blues, Scaggs is coming to Thousand Oaks to continue his five-decade musical career. Out of The Blues is the final installment of his album trilogy that began in 2013 with Memphis. Born William Royce Scaggs in Canton, Ohio on June 8, 1944, he grew up in Oklahoma and Texas, where he spent his teenage years immersed in the blues, R&B and early rock 'n' roll. It's appropriate that the singer-songwriter’s album is Out of the Blues, since the blues is what first sparked his love for music.
Scaggs launched his solo career with 1968's seminal Boz Scaggs LP, recorded in Muscle Shoals, AL for Atlantic Records. Scaggs continued to mine a personalized mix of rock, blues and R&B influences, along with a signature style of ballads on influential '70s albums.
Despite his '70s successes, Scaggs spent much of the 1980s out of the music-biz spotlight, traveling, opening a family business, fathering young children and founding the San Francisco nightclub, Slim's, He returned to the studio after an 8-year hiatus and released, Other Roads, Some Change, Dig, the Grammy-nominated Come on Home, the unplugged Fade Into Light, the in-concert retrospective Greatest Hits Live as well as a stint touring with Donald Fagen’s New York Rock & Soul Review; all while continuing to maintain a loyal audience in the U.S. and overseas, particularly in Japan.
