  • A touching and empowering night of music from the legendary Miss Bonnie Raitt met every Bonnie fan’s expectations at the intimate Bellco Theatre in mid-October.   The 5,000-seat venue had to be sold out, if not close to it and the set on stage was gorgeous with vibrant panels of purple, blue, and black that glittered behind the band as they tore through Raitt's vast catalog of Blues and Soul inspired Pop.
