Actor/musician Billy Bob Thornton recently finished up a West Coast tour, including a date at San Francisco’s Slim’s in mid-September, in support of his Universal Music release, Beautiful Door, his fourth solo album.
Thornton purchased two Digidesign VENUE D-Show consoles for the tour for both front-of-house and monitor positions. Jim Mitchell handled FOH and Michael Bangs managed monitors. Numerous Gibson acoustic and electric guitars rocked the show, as Thornton is a Gibson endorsee.
The band comprises Thornton on lead vocals, keyboardist Teddy Andreadis, J.D. Andrew (guitar/bass/background vocals), drummer Mike Bruce, Mike Butler (guitars/slide guitar), Brad Davis (guitars/mandolin/background vocals) and Mike Shipp on guitars and bass.
