Grace Potter returns to Greenfield Lake Amphitheater

WILMINGTON — Come May 29, Grace Potter will make her return to Wilmington.

Known for her powerful, bluesy vocals and high-rock energy, Potter first performed to local audiences in 2009 with her band the Nocturnals, which broke up over the last decade. She last played to a packed house at the Wilson Center five or so years ago.

On May 29, Potter will return to the 1,000-seat outdoor amphitheater at Greenfield Lake after she performs at festivals, such as Beale Street in Memphis and Cayamo in Miami.

Potter has put out four albums since 2002 — her last, “Daylight,” released in 2019. She was on tour in support of the record when the pandemic hit and, instead, reverted to performing livestreams called “Monday Night Twilight.”

Potter is well-known for collaborations with numerous performers and bands across all genres of music, including country artist Kenny Chesney, psychedelic pop-rockers The Flaming Lips, and even rock-blues icons The Rolling Stones.

Tickets go on sale to Wilmington’s show Friday, Mar. 12, 10 a.m.
