Bonnie Raitt unveils songs from new album in Syracuse, shouts out local songwriter (review, photos)

Bonnie Raitt at the Landmark

Bonnie Raitt performs at the Syracuse Landmark Theatre, Wednesday, April 13, 2022.

The abrupt halt to touring and recording activity in 2020 left a steeping collection of song ideas on Bonnie Raitt’s back burner. After being forced to cancel all her shows, including a tour of Canada with James Taylor, Raitt decided to get to work instead on a new record.

After two-plus years of a pandemic, Raitt kicked off a new tour this week, on which she’s bringing much of that new album — due for release April 22 — to live audiences for the first time. The tour made a stop at Syracuse’s Landmark Theatre in Syracuse Wednesday night.
