Outlaw Field in Boise has turned up the heat for next summer’s concerts with a blitz of recent announcements.

The 11th on the program? Looks like a burner.

The outdoor venue just added the Tedeschi Trucks Band on Wednesday, August 31. Led by married musical couple Susan Tedeschi and Derek Trucks, the 12-member ensemble has “flamethrower powers”, as The Hartford Courant wrote in 2017.

The Wheels of Soul tour will feature two special guests: roots-rock veteran Los Lobos and singer-keyboardist Gabe Dixon, who is also a member of the Tedeschi Trucks Band.

Tickets go on sale at 10 a.m. Friday, March 4 on Ticketmaster.com for standard general admission $59.50, garden member $54.50, suite $119. There’s also a pre-sale for Garden members that starts at 10 a.m. Thursday.

Formed in 2010, the Tedeschi Trucks Band mixes rock, blues and jam-band aesthetics. Tedeschi was an award-winning singer and guitarist before marrying Trucks in 2001. A former member of The Allman Brothers Band, Trucks is a mind-blowing slide guitar magician. He is ranked No. 16 on Rolling Stone’s “100 Greatest Guitarists” list.

The Tedeschi Trucks Band’s debut album, “Revelator,” won a 2012 Grammy Award for Best Blues Album. The band’s 2022 tour has already sold out several shows in advance, including the second of its two nights at the iconic Red Rocks Amphitheater in Morrison, Colorado.

Here’s the rest of the schedule at Outlaw Field, which is located at the Idaho Botanical Garden, 2355 N. Old Penitentiary Road: Lord Huron on May 29, Ween on June 28, The Avett Brothers on July 12, Khruangbin on July 13, Rainbow Kitten Surprise on July 15, Whiskey Myers, Shane Smith & The Saints and 49 Winchester on August 7, The Head and the Heart on August 9, Bonnie Raitt with Mavis Staples on August 14, The Black Crowes on August 16, and Modest Mouse on August 29 .
