Jeff Bridges & the Abiders start tour which includes Tahoe, Reno

The Dude abides.

The often repeated quote from “The Big Lebowski” has been confirmed today by Tahoe Onstage. We tried to get Jeff Bridges on the phone and the dude abided.

The actor-musician begins an eight-show tour Wednesday with the band Jeff Bridges & the Abiders, which plays Aug. 3 at Harrah’s Lake Tahoe and Aug. 4 at Harrah’s Reno.

“The Abiders is a five-piece and we’re all Santa Barbara guys,” Bridges said. “My dear friend Chris Pelonis has put the band together, and we produced an album with Michael McDonald about 12-13 years ago, ‘Be Here Soon.’ And after (the 2010 movie) ‘Crazy Heart,’ I asked Chris to wrangle all the top guys in Santa Barbara and he got this really sweet band together.”

Bridges’ daughter Jessie will open the show on the tour.

“I taught her to play guitar when she was a little girl,” Bridges said. “She’s developed into a wonderful songwriter and guitarist-singer. She’s been my assistant on my last three films, so we have been playing a lot of music together.”

The band is recording the concerts from “a couple of tours” for a live album, Bridges said.

Bridges spoke about various topics, including working with producer T Bone Burnett  in the 1980 movie “Heaven’s Gate,” and 30 yerars later “Crazy Heart,” the possibility of reuniting with Clint Eastwood in a different genre, his choice of guitar, and, of course, his role as “El Duderino.” Watch for the full story in a few days because right now we are working on previews for this weekend’s shows and, well, we felt this article required “the whole brevity thing.”
