WILMINGTON, N.C. (WECT) – The Wilson Center announced that the Boz Scaggs concert originally scheduled for last year will now take place on Saturday, Oct. 23 at 7:30 p.m.
Scaggs, who first played at the Wilson Center in Oct. 2015, was initially going to be in town on Aug. 22, 2020, in support of his new album, “Out of the Blues,” but that concert was ultimately postponed due to Covid-19 restrictions.
After joining the Steve Miller Band and performing on the band’s first two albums — “Children of the Future” and “Sailor” — Scaggs launched his solo career in 1968 with the release of a self-titled LP.
Scaggs’ highly influential 1976 record, “Silk Degrees,” became a massive commercial breakthrough, reaching No. 2 on the Billboard Chart and remaining on the album charts for 115 weeks. It spawned three Top 40 hit singles: “It’s Over,” “Lido Shuffle” and the Grammy-winning “Lowdown.”
After an 8-year hiatus in the early 1980s, Scaggs returned to the studio and released “Other Roads,” “Some Change,” “Dig,” the Grammy-nominated “Come on Home,” the unplugged “Fade Into Light,” the in-concert retrospective “Greatest Hits Live” as well as a stint touring with Donald Fagen’s New York Rock & Soul Review.
