Bonnaroo, Coachella, Osheaga Festival, NOLA Jazz & Heritage
Singer, songwriter, and guitarist Gary Clark Jr. has been invited to perform at all of this year's major American music festivals, from a prime slot at the eclectic Bonnaroo (where he also appeared during the day last year), to the alternative mainstays Coachella and Montreal's Osheaga Festival, to the indie rock-driven Sasquatch!, to the NOLA Jazz & Heritage Festival, plus many other top-line festivals whose line-ups will be announced in the coming weeks.
With an unpredictable and musically varied live set that changes depending on Clark's mood, the Austin native has been wowing fans of all stripes during an incredibly successful year spent touring the U.S, Europe, and the U.K., performing everywhere from sold-out clubs to massive stadiums with Eric Clapton. He has also appeared on The Late Show With David Letterman and Late Night with Jimmy Fallon, at high-profile benefit shows with Alicia Keys and The Roots (bringing the house down on George Harrison's "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" at Keys' Black Ball), played for President Obama at the White House for a recent PBS special "In Performance At The White House: Red, White and Blues," alongside Mick Jagger and Jeff Beck. Add to that a special performance at New York's famed Apollo Theater alongside Keith Richards, Eric Clapton and others for a memorial tribute to the late, great Hubert Sumlin Jr.
All of this has set up major anticipation for Clark's upcoming Warner Bros. Records debut full-length album, which is due this fall. In the meantime, fans can snap up Clark's acclaimed "THE BRIGHT LIGHTS EP," as well as an exclusive 12" vinyl single, Gary Clark Jr. Presents HWUL Cuts Vol. I - a Record Store Day exclusive that contains two previously unreleased live tracks, "If You Love Me Like You Say" and "Bright Lights," which will be released on April 21.
