The outing marks the first time that former bandmates and rumored antagonists Burton Cummings and Randy Bachman have toured together under the Guess Who banner since a short-lived reunion in 1983. Bachman officially left the band in 1970; Cummings in 1975.

Also along for the ride are bassist Bill Wallace and drummer Garry Petersen. Wallace replaces original member Jim Kale, who dropped out of the tour early on.

The group was to have formally finished its reunion swing through the Great White North in Brandon, Manitoba, on July 14. The additional dates, and word of a coming United States jaunt, it looks like the band isn’t quite ready to retire.

Manager Lorne Saifer told Pollstar that not only are more Canadian dates scheduled, but a full tour of the United States is “definitely, absolutely going to happen” later in the year and into 2001, though no dates are confirmed.

Any old rivalries between Cummings, Bachman and the rest of the band were likely smoothed over by a well-received set at the 1999 Pan American Games in their Winnipeg hometown and renewed interest in the band’s career.

The Guess Who’s signature tune, “American Woman,” was covered by Lenny Kravitz and appeared on the “Austin Powers: The Spy Who Shagged Me” and “American Beauty” film soundtracks last year.
