Tempest 25 Tour Postponed

Due to the unprecedented circumstances surrounding COVID-19, Jesse Cook’s Tempest 25 Tour of Canada this March and April is now postponed.

At this time, we are hoping to reschedule the tour dates for the fall of 2020. We will have news on this very soon. All present ticket holders will be notified as soon as these new dates are officially confirmed and updates will be posted on jessecook.com.

We acknowledge this is a stressful time for everyone, we appreciate your patience and understanding.

Jesse shares, “The safety and well-being for my fans, their families as well as my own team is paramount. In this challenging time, we must now follow the direction of our provincial and federal health officials across Canada to ensure we all get through this in the best possible way. I look forward to getting back on the road and performing across Canada once again .”

“HEY!” Music Video out now!

“Some people think world music is anthropological field recordings,” Jesse says of the collaboration. “That’s not my vibe…”, says Jesse.

“Global music is the future, (and) I like it loud and bombastic!”

Jesse has swirled together Spanish guitar and Algerian violin and gumbri into an infectious musical mashup with multi-instrumentalist Fethi Nadjem for “HEY!” — a special single released January 10, 2020.

Watch the music video for “HEY!” now!

Jesse Announces Canada-wide Tempest 25 Tour

Thumbnail Jessecook Tempest25tour Image B

A Personal Note From Jesse:

25 years ago, before Tempest was released, and all that would follow, if you had asked me what I wanted to do with my life, I would have told you that I was happy in my solitude. I didn’t want to be in the public eye.

But I was wrong.

The public, my fans, have lifted me up in so many ways. They have given me the freedom to follow my muse, to chase my dreams. They opened the world to me. Before Tempest, I’d never seen the rest of Canada, I never dreamed I would one day see Asia, let alone tour it. My fans have opened doors to me, given me the opportunity to meet and perform with my musical heroes. Without my fans, none of this would have happened.

Words are not enough to thank all the people who have been with me on this crazy, beautiful journey, these last 25 years.

And now I can’t wait to see where the next 25 will take us…

– Jesse

THANK YOU CHINA!

Jesse, Chris and Nick went Beyond Borders to perform in six diverse cities across China last month. They were met by enthusiastic audiences and several dozen fans even brought their guitars to be signed by Jesse!

To capture the sights and sounds of this unique journey, cameraman Corey joined the trio on their adventure in China. From the Forbidden City in Beijing, to the lights of Shanghai, to the top of the Great Wall, footage was captured that will be seen on Friday Night Music so you can enjoy the journey as well!

Jesse and his team wish to thank Huang Chia-Wei and his wife Maggie for their incredible hospitality and guidance throughout this initial Chinese tour.
