Austin recap and the end of tour for 2023!

18 October 2023

That’s a wrap on the tour for 2023! Bonnie and the band finished up their 50th headlining show of 2023 with a sold out show at ACL Live at The Moody Theatre in Austin on Saturday night, followed on Sunday by a taping of the iconic Austin City Limits television series that will broadcast on PBS in the beginning of 2024 (including a special appearance by singer-songwriter, Sunny War.)

Not quite ready to leave the “Live Music Capital of the World” just yet, Bonnie made a surprise appearance at a special concert at the legendary blues club, Antone’s in Austin, Texas, Monday, October 16. The concert benefiting bassist Sarah Brown, who’s been a beloved figure in the Austin music scene and member of the venue’s house band for the past 40 years, also featured performances by Jimmie Vaughan, Marcia Ball, Sue Foley, Johnny Nicholas, Fran Christina, Rosie Flores, Larry Fulcher, the Texas Horns, Derek O’ Brien and more. (Sarah and others pictured below) The concert aimed to raise awareness of the Living Liver Donor program in an effort to help Brown, a friend of Bonnie’s for over 50 years, find a liver donor match.

Bonnie, the band, crew, all her special guests and us at BRHQ want to send a huge “THANK YOU” to the fans who brought us all so much joy and appreciation this year. We love you too! — BRHQ
