One of the most popular and most recorded singers of the past thirty years, superstar Vince Gill will resume touring this summer, including a stop at Rockford’s Coronado Performing Arts Center on July 20 at 7:30p.m. It is the first time Gill has toured with his band since 2019, and his first time performing at the Coronado PAC.
Gill, who has been touring with the Eagles since 2017, is looking forward to stepping center-stage again: “When all touring stopped back in March of 2020, it was a good time for me to take a break from the road. Now, the Eagles are touring again, and that’s a blast! But, I’m also eager to get back on the bus and visit some places and fans that I haven’t seen for a while.”
Featured on the tour will be vocalist Wendy Moten, who has toured with Gill as a harmony singer for several years and has recently become known for her breathtaking performances on NBC’s The Voice in 2021. Gill, who produced Moten’s most recent album I’ve Got You Covered, said, “I’ve always enjoyed sharing a stage with Wendy, whether she was singing harmonies for me, or when we were in The Time Jumpers together. It’s always been my wish that more of the world could hear her, so being able to feature her each night of this tour is something I look forward to.”
In addition to Moten, also joining Gill on stage will be Paul Franklin (steel), Billy Thomas (drums), Jimmy Sloas (bass), and John Jarvis (keyboards).
