Chris Isaak tour working its way through North America
Crooner and occasional actor Chris Isaak has loaded up the tour bus for a round of summer dates on the California and Northwest circuit.
Isaak and his band are currently working their way up the California coast with stops in the Southland and Bay Area, followed by several dates in Oregon, Washington, and one in Sand Point, ID, before a three-pack of shows in the Great Lakes and another seven north of the border in Western Canada.
The Stockton, CA-bred Isaak, known perhaps as much for his matinee-idol looks as his successful music career, got his initial break when film producer David Lynch used two songs from Isaak's debut album "Silvertone" for the soundtrack to the cult classic film "Blue Velvet." The crooner reached mainstream success when Lynch included the song "Wicked Game" in his 1990 film "Wild At Heart." Both the song and the accompanying video, which features Isaak rolling around on a sandy beach with Danish supermodel Helena Christensen, became breakout hits in 1991.
Isaak has released 14 albums over his career. His most recent studio album is 2009's "Mr. Lucky."
