So, just got off the phone with Mike McAdam. We are booking the plane tickets for the band. They will be arriving on Jan. 30th for a couple of days of rehearsal and then we start to Kevin Montgomery and the Endangered Livers 2012 Winter tour through Ireland, Northern Ireland, Scotland, and England.
I hope you can come to one of the shows. I’ll be playing songs from the new cd, “Some Comfort”, and others as well. Mike McAdam returns……and will most certainly play some amazing slide guitar. Last year he blew me away. Looking forward to playing with him again.
The tour starts in Dublin, Ireland on Feb. 1st and then we head up to Belfast, Omagh, and Enniskillen………we then head to Scotland, and end up in England.
Tickets are on sale now. Get your tickets, and think about bringing some folks along. The economy is tough. I considered not doing this tour because of it…………so, I need you to bring a couple of folks with you and buy your tickets in advance if you can! It takes an incredible amount of money to even get this tour on the road the first day…..plane tickets, deposit on the camper van, fuel, etc, etc, so get those tickets! If you can’t come to a show and just want to buy us some fuel for the road. You can do that here.
Here are the tour dates:
