    Wanda Jackson Launches US Spring Tour; Show "Should Not Be Missed" (Chicago Tribune)
    Michaela Neller

    Wanda Jackson, hot off the heels of her stellar SXSW performances last week in Austin, Texas, is set to kick off the latest leg of her US tour, featuring music from her Third Man / Nonesuch Records debut, The Party Ain't Over, and throughout her storied career, at Lincoln Hall in Chicago tonight. The Chicago Tribune says it's a show that "should not be missed." The Chicago Reader has made it a Critics Choice. "If the word 'brassy' didn't already exist," suggests the Chicago Reader's Miles Raymer,
    "somebody probably would've had to invent it to describe Wanda Jackson." Opening tonight's show and the following four shows are the brother/sister group Dex Romweber Duo, which, according to the Tribune, "offer up what has been called a true rock 'n' roll sound (old school, you might say)."

    In the coming week, the performers will head to Louisville, Kentucky, where Jackson will meet with fans at the ear X-tacy record store prior to Thursday's show at Headliners Music Hall; Bloomington, Indiana; Newport, Kentucky; and St. Louis, Missouri. Cincinnati's City Paper, previewing Saturday's show in Newport, calls her "one of the most influential Rockabilly stars" and describes The Party Ain't Over, as an "excellent and appropriately titled new album."

    To kick off the opening of the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum's upcoming exhibit, Women Who Rock, the Museum's annual It's Only Rock and Roll Spring Benefit Concert, will feature Wanda Jackson fronting an all-star lineup along with Cyndi Lauper, both of whom are featured in the new exhibit. The concert will take place at the Cleveland Convention Center on May 14. Tickets go on sale to Rock Hall Members next Monday, March 28, and to the general public on Tuesday, March 29. Proceeds from the event benefit the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame and Museum's educational activities. Each year, the Hall teaches over 50,000 students both onsite and through distance learning and serves over 400,000 visitors.

    Below are Wanda Jackson's currently scheduled tour dates. For more information and ticket links, visit nonesuch.com/on-tour. To pick up a copy of The Party Ain't Over on CD and vinyl, with high-quality, 320 MP3s included at checkout, head to the Nonesuch Store now.
