Following the recent announcement of their ambitious new 4-album studio and film project, I Am The Moon, Tedeschi Trucks Band has unveiled the dates for their highly-anticipated annual return to New York’s Beacon Theatre this fall. The 12-piece, rock and soul collective led by singer-guitarist Susan Tedeschi and guitarist Derek Trucks will play seven nights in New York City - September 29 & 30; October 1, 3, 6, 7, and 8. The 2022 Beacon Theatre shows mark the group’s 11th multi-night Beacon run, and will include their 50th show at the famed theatre on October 3. Tedeschi Trucks Band’s annual tenure in the Big Apple is a destination event - featuring surprise sit-ins, special guests, and set lists that go deep in the band's catalog – and has become a can't-miss concert experience.
Tickets go on sale to the general public Friday, May 13 at 11AM ET via Ticketmaster. Swamp Family Fan Club Member presale access will begin Wednesday, May 11 at NOON ET. Visit www.TedeschTrucksBand.com/tour for all details.
“The Beacon is always a place for us to stretch out and explore musical territory,” says Derek Trucks. “We have an incredible amount of new material coming out this year with I Am The Moon and the Beacon shows will be some of the first where we'll be able to draw from all of it and have the space to really dig in."
The 2022 residency will feature support from Amy Helm on Thursday, September 29 and Ruthie Foster on Thursday, October 6. Monday, October 3 will mark the group’s 50th show at The Beacon and is sure to be a memorable evening. Friday and Saturday nights will feature two sets of Tedeschi Trucks Band. This year will also be one of the few opportunities in the U.S. to catch the band live after all four albums of I Am The Moon are released.
Susan Tedeschi adds, "I Am The Moon is a creative milestone for us - and we've got our 50th show at The Beacon, another milestone. We're looking forward to celebrating both and all the hard work that went into getting here - it's not something that just happens."
Operatic in scope, and epic in scale, I Am The Moon is the most ambitious studio project of Tedeschi Trucks Band’s storied career - comprised of four albums and four companion films to be released throughout the summer. Inspired by a mythic Persian tale of star-crossed lovers, and emotionally driven by the isolation and disconnection of the pandemic era, the thematic I Am The Moon totals more than two hours of music unfolding across a robust tapestry of genre-defying explorations that propel the treasured American ensemble into new and thrilling creative territory.

The four albums that comprise I Am The Moon — I. Crescent, II. Ascension, III. The Fall, and IV. Farewell — will be released in successive months beginning with I. Crescent. The corresponding films which combine studio and performance footage with atmospheric photography and imagery will debut three days prior to each audio release offering fans an early opportunity to digest each album in its entirety via the band’s YouTube channel. The first film debuts Tuesday, May 31 followed by the first album release available digitally and on CD, Friday, June 3. All vinyl configurations, including the 4-LP I Am The Moon Deluxe Box, will be available on September 9. For more album information, please visit www.TedeschiTrucksBand.com/i-am-the-moon.
