Touring: Little Steven & the Disciples of Soul Touring to Benefit the Rock and Roll Forever Foundation

by VVN Music

Last years, Steven Van Zandt released his first solo album since 1999, Soulfire.

Credited as Little Steven and the Disciples of Soul, the album revisited music from across Van Zandt's career.

On April 29, Van Zandt will play the first of five dates (with more promised) at the State Theatre in New Brunswick, NJ and following with dates around the northeast.

The dates will benefit Van Zandt's Rock and Roll Forever Foundation, a non-profit organization that is championing programs for middle and high schools in the history of rock that includes lesson plans in social studies, language arts, media studies and general music that are aligned with common core and other state-based educational initiatives. Among the archival material in the programs are films from Reelin' in the Years, ABC News and Rock's Backpages.

Van Zandt said "Music will forever be humanity's most effective and consistent source of inspiration and motivation and, we have learned, music turns out to be our most solid common ground for establishing communication between teachers and students, which is where education begins."

The first tour dates:
  • 04/29 - New Brunswick, NJ - State Theatre
  • 05/01 - Ridgefield, CT - Ridgefield Playhouse
  • 05/02 - New York, NY - PlayStation Theatre
  • 05/04 - Albany, NY - Palace Theatre
