Rock and Roll Hall of Famer Dave Mason is revisiting his classic 1970 masterpiece Alone Together on his new ‘Alone Together Again’ U.S. tour. As one of America’s most beloved classic rock albums, Alone Together – Mason’s debut solo album – is represented on eight timeless tracks that are as satisfying and inspiring now as they were when they were first released 46 years ago.

Mason’s band for this show features guitarist/vocalist Johnne Sambataro, drummer Alvino Bennett and keyboardist/vocalist Tony Patler.

The ‘Alone Together Again’ show will include fan favorites like “All Along the Watchtower,” “Dear Mr. Fantasy,” “We Just Disagree,” “Only You Know and I Know” and “Feelin’ Alright,” in addition to a selection of hits from his illustrious career. Photos and firsthand autobiographical commentary will complement the experience, making the performance by a living classic rock legend of one of rock & roll history’s most significant albums a truly once-in-a-lifetime experience. It’s a show that Dave has wanted to do for quite some time, stating, “Alone Together was an important album for me for many reasons and I still love those songs.”

Best known for his soulful voice and unsurpassed guitar playing, Dave Mason was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame as a founding member of the group Traffic, and continues performing as a solo artist with sold-out shows all over the world. His career spans several important rock eras, and encompasses his work as a producer, performer, songwriter, and consummate guitarist. A quintessential rock star, Mason has collaborated with numerous members of music elite, including Jimi Hendrix, George Harrison, Paul McCartney, Stevie Wonder, Michael Jackson, Eric Clapton, and many more.

The English singer-songwriter and guitarist from Worcester, Dave Mason, first found fame with the rock band Traffic. Over his career, Mason has played, recorded and/or performed with many well known and notable musicians, including Paul McCartney, George Harrison, Eric Clapton, the Rolling Stones, Jimi Hendrix, David Crosby, Graham Nash, Michael Jackson, Steve Winwood, Fleetwood Mac, Leon Russell, Delaney Bramlett, Cass Elliot and, most recently, Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi, among others.

Mason was most recently one of the featured performers at the ‘Tribute to Joe Cocker / Mad Dogs and Englishmen’ event, curated and organized by Derek Trucks and Susan Tedeschi (featuring the ‘Tedeschi Trucks Band’ and former members of the original “Mad Dogs & Englishmen’ tour), which was produced for and staged at the 2015 Lockn’ Music Festival, in Arrington, Virginia.

One of Mason’s most well known songs is “Feelin’ Alright,” recorded by Traffic in 1968 and later by many other performers, including Joe Cocker, who had a major hit with the song in 1969. Mason also wrote “Hole In My Shoe,” for Traffic, which became a hit in its own right and he recorded “We Just Disagree,” his 1977 solo U.S. hit written by Jim Krueger, which has become a radio playlist classic.
