Since their first performance at the Beacon in 2011, Tedeschi Trucks Band has performed 39 shows in this legendary theater.

Guest sit-ins and surprise appearances in recent years by Norah Jones, Jerry Douglas, Jon Batiste, and Ravi Coltrane have also made the Beacon shows special.
TTB’s return to the Beacon marks a true homecoming for the entire band after 18 months of unprecedented uncertainty for live music. With the tour still on hold in early 2021, Derek and Susan launched Fireside Sessions, an intimate home live performance series whose proceeds have helped support the band and the team. Joined by a number of band members (Mike Mattison, Tyler Greenwell, Brandon Boone, Gabe Dixon, Mark Rivers and Kebbi Williams), the Fireside Sessions re-energized fans and inspired the group to bring the scaled-down TTB line to the road. as Fireside LIVE – a series of socially distant, limited-capacity shows throughout the summer. The sold-out dates were the first fully live public performances for the group since February 2020, but not with the whole ensemble.
