Let’s start with Lenny, shall we? New dates for Mr. Kravitz include Denver, Chicago, Detroit and Boston in January and New York City for Feb. 1.

Celine Dion keeps adding dates. Guess she’s making up for all that time she didn’t get out of Vegas. New shows include stops in Quatar on the Arabian Peninsula, Dubai in the United Arab Emirates, Helsinki, Hamburg, Johannesburg, South Africa, and Edmonton, Alberta.

Backstreet Boys add U.K. dates for Liverpool, Birmingham, Glasgow and London; new listings for RAQ include a twofer in Teaneck NJ; Deanna Bogart adds a two-night engagement in Roanoke, VA, and Incubus gets to go to Hawaii in March.

Galactic is another band that realizes the advantages of mixing work with pleasure by touring Colorado, Utah and Wyoming during ski season; Don McLean’s new listings include shows in Arizona, New Mexico, Michigan, Minnesota and California; Ronan Tynan adds New York, Indiana and Pennsylvania to his ’08 schedules and new dates for Skillet include a stop in Oshkosh, WI, for LifeFest.

Lots of new arena and shed dates for RBD, like the Coors Amphitheater in Chula Vista, CA, and Allstate Arena in Rosemont, IL; Chris Cain adds TX, NV, CA and FL and Bruce Cockburn slots Denver, Colorado, and Homer, Alaska.

During the past couple of hours we also updated the schedules for Bassnectar, Charlie Musselwhite, Colin Mochrie & Brad Sherwood, Gods Of Kansas, Hamilton Loomis, Harper, Headspace, House Of Lords, Linda Eder, Lloyd Jones, New Monsoon, Norton Buffalo, Puddle Of Mudd, Roy Rogers & The Delta Rhythm Kings, Suicidal Tendencies, Under A Falling Sky and Virginia Coalition.

And it’s the final stretch! Two more hours before our tour date researchers collapse from exhaustion, their heads crashing down upon their keyboards like so many bags of wet cement, their heartbeats sounding like the rhythm section for The Shaggs. Be sure to catch your final update of the day – The Closing Bell – coming up around 5 PM (PST) from Pollstar.com!
