Blues legend Walter Trout has announced his plans to return to stages across the world in 2015. Following a liver transplant and extensive rehabilitation, the esteemed Bluesman feels strong enough to resume his career of fifty plus years. Trout has said: “The last year has been one where the blues truly came calling, and I came face to face with death more than once. My wife moved me to Nebraska to improve my chances of getting a life-saving liver transplant, and after a long wait, I got my new liver on May 26th, 2014. Since then I have been filled with immense gratitude. Gratitude for the fans who supported me via fundraisers, cards, messages, thoughts and prayers, for the donor and his or her family, for medical science, for my family, and for life itself. “Everything matters more to me now. Now, 7 months after my transplant I feel like a new man. I have strength and energy. In some ways I feel like I am in my 20s again! The past couple of years of playing I was getting dizzy spells, severe cramps in my hand and forearm and played many shows in severe pain. It turns out that was a result of my deteriorating liver. That is gone now! I am able to play better than I have in years. I feel reborn. I cannot wait to get back out on the road again and do what I love to do for my fans. The future looks great!” Walter Trout will make appearances across Europe and North America in the coming months. His first public appearance will take place on June 15 in London at the Royal Albert Hall as part of Lead Belly Fest.
