Kenny Wayne Shepherd Coming Home for 25th Anniversary Benefit Concert
Shreveport's hometown hero and blues legend Kenny Wayne Shepherd is coming home to celebrate the 25th anniversary of the release of 'Trouble Is.'
Okay, I'm feeling pretty old right now. I remember when Kenny released Trouble Is back in 1997. I had just gotten my start in radio the year before and it wasn't long before Blue on Black, the lead single from Trouble Is, was flooding the airwaves. Flash forward 25 YEARS and Shreveport's native son is in a whole new place in life. He's a husband, a father, and a musician known worldwide as one of the best in the blues game. Isn't it cool that he's one of ours? In celebration of the anniversary of the release of Trouble Is 25 years ago, Kenny Wayne is coming back to Shreveport with the rest of the band to play a benefit concert at the historic Strand Theatre Saturday, February 12th, 2022 and tickets are on sale NOW!
Kenny Wayne is dedicated to giving back to his hometown, the community that gave him his start.
Proceeds from the event will bless Providence House and the Northwest Louisiana Family Justice Center. So, what can you expect at the concert? During the anniversary show, Kenny and the boys will play Trouble Is from top to bottom. Of course, I had to ask Kenny about the remake of Blue on Black by Five Finger Death Punch with Brantley Gilbert and Brian May from Queen... is there a chance any of them could show up? Here's what he had to say!
