Iconic singer/songwriter Bonnie Raitt has extended her “Just Like That…” tour to include a stop in Riverside County, it was announced Tuesday. The 13-time Grammy Award-winner will take the stage Sept. 13 at Fantasy Springs Resort Casino’s Special Events Center in Indio. Tickets start at $59 and go on sale at 10 a.m. Feb. 9 at the Fantasy Springs Box Office (84-245 Indio Springs Parkway), via phone at 800-827-2946, and online at www.FantasySpringsResort.com.

The 8 p.m. show will open with rhythm and blues artist James Hunter. “We’re very much looking forward to kicking off the night for the great Bonnie Raitt, so bring your dancing shoes and we’ll get you warmed up for a memorable evening of live music,” Hunter said.

The “Just Like That…” tour is an homage to the title track of Raitt’s 18th studio album of the same name released April 22, 2022. The song was written and produced by Raitt and lyrically details the story of a woman who is visited by the recipient of her son’s heart, which he received in a life-saving organ donation operation.

The song won “Best American Roots Song” and “Song of the Year” at the 65th Annual Grammy Awards in 2023. “I was so inspired for this song by the incredible story of the love and the grace and the generosity of someone that donates their beloved’s organs to help another person live and this story was so simple and so beautiful for these times,” Raitt said in her 2023 Grammy acceptance speech. Raitt’s unique musical style blends blues, R&B, rock and pop. In 1971, she released her self-titled debut album and her career has been embraced by every generation of new fans since then.

The now-74-year-old slide guitar ace was inducted into the Rock & Roll Hall of Fame in 2000 and Rolling Stone named her #54 on its recently updated list of the “250 Greatest Guitarists of All Time” and one of the “100 Greatest Singers of All Time.” Raitt is also making her fourth headlining appearance on the award-winning television series “Austin City Limits.” The Feb. 24 show will feature L.A.-based folk-punk musician Sunny War joining Raitt for a special performance. The “Just Like That…” tour was extended with 30+ dates in the U.S. in 2024.

Raitt and her longtime touring band will headline concerts starting in Arizona and Southern California, traveling up the West Coast and finishing in the Pacific Northwest throughout September and October before heading to the Southeast and Florida in November to wind up the year.
