Dates, Dates & More Dates …
It’s always a treat to see new Karla Bonoff dates, but today it’s a bigger treat for the folks in Japan as Ms. Bonoff schedules a March run through Fukuoka, Osaka and Tokyo.
Wynonna fills in a few blanks as she adds shows for July, August, November and December. Look for her in Chautauqua (New York) and Sterling Heights (Michigan) in July, Grand Ronde (Oregon) and Sandpoint (Idaho) in August, two nights in Rochester (New York) in November and California towns Cerritos and Santa Rosa in December.

Finally, Switchfoot updates with new dates for June, July, August and December. Dates include June 25 in Shirleysburg (Pennsylvania), July 30 in Rock Springs (Wyoming) and September 5 in Orlando (Florida).
During the day we also updated the schedules for Asylum Street Spankers, Queens Of The Stone Age, Peter Frampton, Spoon, Billy Joel, Testament, Smashing Pumpkins, The Jesus And Mary Chain, Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers, Bon Jovi, Gavin DeGraw, Susan Tedeschi, Lotus, Kenny Rogers, Iris DeMent, Duran Duran, Toto, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Son Volt, Stevie Nicks, Night Ranger, Patty Larkin, The Audition, The Derailers, plus more artists and bands than Simon Cowell will ever learn to appreciated. But that’s a given.
And that’s a wrap. Four days down, and one to go until the weekend. Of course, we’ll be here tomorrow, chained to our desks, our corporate overlords holding pictures of our families in front of us while threatening to “make life tough” if we don’t increase our output. Thank God for the Tour Data Researchers union, or things could really get nasty. Good night and stay classy.
