Santa Barbara Bowl Announces Three New Shows

Jimmy Buffett, Ben Harper, Tedeschi Trucks Will Headline in 2015

As we creep closer to the start of concert season, the Santa Barbara Bowl is continuing to add to its 2015 lineup. This Monday, the venue let loose three new live shows: Tedeschi Trucks Band and Sharon Jones and the Dap-Kings (6/7), Ben Harper & The Innocent Criminals (9/19), and Jimmy Buffett and the Coral Reefer Band (10/15). They’ll join a strong (and still growing) season that already includes seminal fusion rockers Steely Dan, modern funk auteurs Chromeo (5/30), and country icon Willie Nelson (7/22). The 2015 Santa Barbara Bowl season kicks off on Tuesday, April 14 with indie electro-pop act alt-J. For tickets, information, and a complete listing of Bowl shows, visit
