Ryman Auditorium

Twang meets psychedelic groove when Billy Strings comes to town. The 28-year-old bluegrass star performed for an empty Ryman Auditorium on October 25th while fans watched through a livestream platform. Strings powerful stage presence allowed his virtual audience to feel like they were front row at the famous Nashville venue and fully immersed in the sound of live music.

Billy Strings announced today that the band will perform a special 120-minute set, live from the historic Ryman Auditorium in Nashville on Sunday, October 25. Spotify presale began, Oct 14 at 12:00 pm CT at the exclusive early bird price of $19.99. The general on-sale will begin Friday, Oct 16 HERE.

Last night, guitar icon Joe Bonamassa truly stole the show. Performing LIVE, in real time, from Ryman Auditorium, Bonamassa played his new studio album Royal Tea (recorded at Abbey Road Studios in London) in its entirety, a month before its release on October 23rd, along with fan favorites from his recent 20th anniversary album, A New Day Now, which is his 23rd #1 album!

Guitarist Bob Weir led his bandmates, drummer Jay Lane and bassist Don Was through an opening set full of Grateful Dead favorites. The second set started with the legendary John Oates, one half of the best-selling duo of all time, Hall & Oates, and Buddy Miller on the tour’s first cover of Mississippi John Hurt’s “My Creole Belle.” Oates stuck around, joining in on The Grateful Dead’s “Friend Of The Devil.”

Last night saw Nashville’s mother church, The Ryman, welcome the second annual "The BIG 98 Presents: Bobby Bones & The Raging Idiots’ Million Dollar Show For St. Jude." The show, which sold-out almost immediately at on-sale, benefited St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital® and marked an unforgettable celebration of the staggering fundraising efforts of Bobby Bones & The Raging Idiots to date, which has resulted in $5.9 million being raised for St. Jude through radiothons, on-air fundraisers, charity concerts and more.
