Raitt, who plays Interlochen’s Kresge Auditorium on July 23, and Air Supply, scheduled for July 9, are the first of several acts the northern Michigan venue aims to book for its summer series, with more artists announced this spring, said Simone Silverbush, director of media relations and communications.
Tickets for the Raitt and Air Supply concerts go on sale Feb. 25 via tickets.interlochen.org.
Until the COVID-19 pandemic, Interlochen had hosted summer concerts for more than four decades, before being forced to cancel the series in 2020.
Last summer, the Interlochen Arts Festival featured a limited handful of shows, and was forced to cancel the final concert in the series featuring Buddy Guy and Robert Randolph.
Raitt – a 10-time Grammy Award winner and Rock and Roll Hall of Fame inductee – is mounting an ambitious 2022 “Just Like That” tour that begins in April and runs through mid-November. Raitt has released 17 studio albums since 1971, scoring big hits with songs such as “Something To Talk About,” “I Can’t Make You Love Me” and “Love Sneakin’ Up On You.” Tickets for her concert will start at $50.
Raitt has played Interlochen and Frederik Meijer Gardens & Sculpture Park on numerous occasions over the years, making her most recent Meijer Gardens appearance in 2016 with opening act Richard Thompson.
Air Supply, meanwhile, features the Australian-English duo of Graham Russell and Russell Hitchcock, who first hit it big with the 1979 single, “Lost in Love,” and subsequently racked up Top 10 hits with “All Out of Love,” “Every Woman in the World,” “The One That You Love,” “Here I Am,” “Sweet Dreams” and “Even the Nights are Better.” Tickets for the Air Supply concert start at $37.
