Tedeschi Trucks Band will be MN Zoo's last & most expensive show

Posted by: Jon Bream under Music, Concert news, Minnesota musicians, Tickets Updated: May 9, 2011 - 2:39 PM


The 33rd — and probably last — show at the Minnesota Zoo will be the most expensive. The new Tedeschi Trucks Band is set for Aug. 26, with tickets going for $56, $65 and, for VIP, $77.50. (Those prices tie the Monkees for most expensive tickets.)  

Susan Tedeschi and her husband, Derek Trucks, have put together a new band and will release their debut, "Revelator," on June 7.

The 11-member ensemble features various members of each principal’s solo groups, including Oteil and Kofi Burbridge, Tyler Greenwell and Minneapolis-bred Mike Mattison.

Tickets will go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday at the Electric Fetus, Ticketmaster and 1-800-745-3000.

Tedeschi and Trucks have been zoo regulars. The husband-and-wife’s previous collaboration, the Derek Trucks & Susan Tedeschi Soul Stew, performed at the zoo in 2008 and Trucks’ own group was there in 2009 while Tedeschi did her own zoo gigs in 2005, ’06 and ’07.
