“Steve Winwood is just the latest in the growing number of Rock legends to grace our stage at DPAC. To have landed this Rock and Roll Hall of Fame member for one of his handful of US dates is a real coup. With his just announced Grammy nominations and a career that spans more that 4 decades, Triangle concert fans can expect an electrifying experience. The intimate concert setting at DPAC is becoming famous for special audience and performer connections, and this show should be very special,” said Bob Klaus, General Manager of DPAC.”
Steve Winwood appears to be back in the high life again on the heels of a successful tour and 2 critically acclaimed albums ‘Nine Lives’ and ‘Live from Madison Garden’. ‘Live from Madison Garden’ an album released with former Blind Faith band mate- Eric Clapton- is nominated for two Grammys: ’Best Rock Album’, and ’Best Rock Performance By A Duo Or Group With Vocals’ for the song ’Can’t Find My Way Home’.
Winwood was just a teenager when he rocketed into the international spotlight. With his signature work with the Spencer Davis Group (“Gimme Some Lovin’ ”) to Traffic (“Dear Mr. Fantasy,” “The Low Spark of High Heeled Boys”), Blind Faith (“Can’t Find My Way Home”) and thirty years of solo ventures (“Higher Love,” “Roll With It”), Winwood continues creating an era-bridging soundtrack of distinctive artistry. A performance not to miss.
