Beginning tonight, Eric Johnson will begin a U.S. tour in support of his latest album, Up Close. The string of dates run from January 4-29 and will be a rare treat as most shows will be an evening with Eric Johnson as Eric and his band (bassist Chris Maresh and drummer Wayne Salzmann) will be the only performers—except for six dates, which will feature talented acoustic guitarist Andy McKee (1/6 NYC, 1/7 Phoenixville, 1/12 Chicago, 1/14 Chicago, 1/18 Anaheim, and 1/19 Los Angeles), while Peppino wil open 1/21 in Visalia.
Johnson will be performing on a variety of stellar equipment that he fully endorses, including a newly released “Signature Series” speaker by Eminence and” Dunlop Fuzz Face retro'd back to Hendrix model.
Released last year, Up Close, Johnson's sixth solo album, featured such special guests as Sonny Landreth, Steve Miller, Jimmie Vaughan, and Jonny Lang, and was later reissued as a beautiful 180 gram vinyl edition.
