Rock & Roll Hall of Famer Dave Mason kicks off his Winter tour on Thursday, January 19 in Atlanta, GA and continues South with performances set in Charleston, six shows in Florida including Ft. Lauderdale and Orlando before heading to Nashville, Cincinnati, Detroit. This new leg will end with multiple performances in Chicago on February 20 & 21.  This perpetual ongoing world tour is a testament to Mason’s six-decade enduring role as a Rock Icon as well as the unrelenting support of his music loving fans the world over. A self-described endangered species, Mason enjoyed a successful cross country run this Fall and is thrilled to get back out on the road to see his friends and fans - “There is nothing quite like performing live. I love it!” exclaimed Mason.

Get up to speed with DAVE MASON IN 60 SECONDS.

Joining Mason on this run is longtime band member Johnne Sambataro on guitar and vocals, and exciting new additions with Marty Fera on drums, welcoming back Tony Patler on keyboard and vocals, and Ray Cardwell on bass and vocals. This new lineup will perform Mason’s most loved and iconic songs as well as deep tracks and fans can always count on a few surprises.
Even when Dave Mason isn’t on tour, he’s still in creative mode. His upcoming memoir - Only You Know and I Know -is set for release in May 2023. In Mason’s classic style he tells his story in a refreshingly straightforward and authentic manner. Like his music, his memoir is genuine and warm. And he’s always in his studio, writing and recording. New music will also be released later next year.
Written when he was only 20 years old, Dave Mason is likely best known for “Feelin’ Alright?”, one of the most beloved and covered rock anthems since its release in 1968. The timeless song continues to be a powerful and enduring moment of rock and roll history, featured in dozens of films and TV commercials as well as interpretations by artists as diverse as Joe Cocker, Three Dog Night, Grand Funk Railroad, ELO, Coldplay, The 5th Dimension and so many more. A new version of this classic was re-recorded and released in July 2020 featuring Mason alongside Mick Fleetwood, Sammy Hagar, Michael McDonald and The Doobie Brothers: John McFee, Tom Johnston, John Cowan and Pat Simmons. Listen to “Feelin’ Alright” HERE; watch the video HERE.
Mason has been respectfully called a musical “gunslinger” for a reason; having worked with some of the biggest names in music, his trademark guitar licks and musical touches are all over beloved classic hits.  Early next year will see the release of his first ever autobiography Only You Know & I Know, where Dave will share some of the great untold tales in rock and roll. Dave has a unique and rare viewpoint as he recorded an album with Mama Cass, played rhythm guitar on “All Along the Watchtower” with Jimi Hendrix, was a founding member of Traffic, recorded with Paul McCartney, George Harrison and The Rolling Stones, was part of Fleetwood Mac for a spell, as well as a guitar designer and a Rock & Roll Hall of Fame Inductee …. Yep, that’s Dave Mason.
