Steve Winwood to play in Tulsa on Nov. 24

Mutli-Grammy winning rocker to perform at The Joint 

TULSA, Okla. – As a member of multiple bands and as a solo artist, multi-instrumentalist Steve Winwood has remained a primary figure in rock music for nearly five decades. On Nov. 24, the legendary British musician will perform at The Joint inside Hard Rock Hotel & Casino Tulsa. 

Tickets start at $45 and go on sale Oct. 11. 

As a solo artist, Winwood has released nine studio albums and a collection of popular hit singles, including “Roll with It,” “While You See a Chance,” “Valerie,” “Back in the High Life Again” and “Higher Love,” which earned the singer two Grammys. 

Winwood’s career began in 1963 as a 15-year-old in the Spencer Davis Group, where he co-wrote the classic hits “Gimme Some Lovin’” and “I’m a Man.” 

Four years later Winwood co-founded Traffic, which recorded eight albums and released the popular singles “Paper Sun,” “Hole in My Shoe” and “Feelin’ Alright,” which was covered by Joe Cocker. Traffic was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2008. 

During his early years with Traffic, Winwood joined Eric Clapton, Ginger Baker and Ric Grech to form the supergroup Blind Faith, which released one album. The self-titled work includes the Winwood-penned hit song “Can’t Find My Way Home.” 

In 2008, “Rolling Stone” ranked Winwood No. 33 in its “100 Greatest Singers of All Time” list.
