Opening for Lee on all dates are newcomers The Flying Tigers.

Tour promoter House of Blues is offering an internet presale promotion which began April 16. Fans can purchase tickets through a special mini-site before the national onsales start. The Web site will also feature interactive content throughout the tour, including a chance to win an autographed drum head.

“I know I’m a drummer by trade, but no one knows that I’ve been singing and playing guitar for years,” said Lee. “As a drummer, for me to sing with rhythm is natural and I knew one day I’d do something.

“When I was writing Never A Dull Moment, I was thinking more about how the songs were going to be live than whether my old fans were going to like it. Never A Dull Moment is me now.”

“Tommy is a charismatic artist [who] has a great live show and a new CD that’s sizzling hot,” said House of Blues Senior VP Kevin Morrow. “He’s a perfect match for House of Blues and we’re thrilled to be on the road with him. It will be one hell of a party, of that you can be certain!”

The tour is in support of Lee’s debut album of the same name, which will be released May 21.
