Chick Corea and Béla Fleck will co-headline North American live shows in 2017

The Chick Corea Elektric Band and Béla Fleck & The Fleckstones will be co-headlining a series of North American live dates on August 5-21.

In 2007, keyboardist Corea and banjoist Fleck collaborated on a duet album titled The Enchantment, which was Grammy nominated for its track “Spectacle” in the Best Instrumental Composition category. That year, they also extensively toured together.

Yet, the August 2017 concerts will mark the first time that a series of events will be co-headlined by their respective legendary bands.

Corea will re-unite the original line-up of his jazz rock Elektric Band, which features bassist John Patitucci, guitarist Frank Gambale, saxophonist Eric Marienthal, and drummer Dave Weckl. Fleck’s jazz fusion group, the Flecktones, features bassist Victor Wooten, keyboardist/harmonica player Howard Levy, and Victor’s brother Roy “Future Man” Wooten on his self-invented drumitar.

On these shows will feature full band sets and will be followed by an encore jam session featuring a mixture of talents of both bands. Locations and times of the shows have yet to be announced.
