Traffic and Blind Faith founder Steve Winwood goes solo at Fox Theatre

Posted By on Sat, Feb 24, 2018 at 8:00 AM

Few artists embody just what the late ’80s sounded like quite as accurately as English songwriter Steve Winwood. Key up the synths and shoulder shimmying ballads — “Higher Love” is just within reach. Labeled his Greatest Hits tour, Winwood is sure to draw from his vast catalog — he’s sold over 50 million records over the course of his influential career that spans five decades. Before the feathered hair and radio-readiness of his solo stint, his work as the founding member of Traffic (one of the most influential rock bands in history) ranks among his most definitive. Or maybe it is the standalone self-titled Blind Faith record with Ginger Baker, Ric Grech, and Eric Clapton that changed everything. Either way, Winwood is an innovator.

Steve Winwood will perform at the Fox Theatre on Monday, Feb. 26; Doors open at 8 p.m.; 2211 Woodward Ave., Detroit; 313-471-3200; 313presents.com; Tickets are $30-$199.50.
