Award-winning and Internationally acclaimed guitarist, composer and producer Jesse Cook is set to mark 25 years of music with 25 special tour dates across Canada, starting with Nanaimo, BC this March 20th.
Tickets for The Tempest 25 Tour — a nod to his 1995 debut, Tempest (Narada) — are available for presale this Thursday, October 24 and to the public October 25th.
The tour serves as a bemusing milestone for a guy who never planned on releasing an album.
By the numbers, Jesse Cook holds ten platinum and gold studio albums with combined sales exceeding two million copies, five concert DVDs and live discs, and five PBS specials — his most recent, directed, edited and mixed by Cook himself.
He holds a JUNO Award win for Best Instrumental Album with 2000’s Free Fall (Narada) — which celebrates its 20th anniversary next year — and 11 JUNO Award nominations. These stack alongside three Canadian Smooth Jazz Awards, a Gemini Award and Acoustic Guitar Magazine Player’s Choice Silver Award, not to mention thousands of concerts in dozens of countries, plus millions of views and streams, and countless fans around the world.
His latest release, Beyond Borders (2017, eOne Music), explores a sonic landscape unfettered by geography, ethnicity and musical styles. Forging a unique world music hybrid, the release is Cook’s most sonically diverse and distinctive release in what’s amounting to a vast and varied discography.
Tickets : $41.50 – $62.00 (Plus Applicable Service Charges)
