Dates, Dates & More Dates …

We updated concert schedules all afternoon, but unlike most days, the raw data landing on our loading dock consisted of nothing but additional dates for established tours. No new 30-night tours through the U.S., or two weeks in the U.K. or three weeks Down Under. Just a date here, a date there. Here’s some highlights:

Blues lady Kelly Richey adds April 10 in Maryville, Tennessee at Brackins, and April 11 in Marietta, Georgia, at Darwin’s.

Sawyer Brown adds a couple of dates to the ol’ calendar. Look for the band in Mille Lacs, Minnesota where they’ll play a two-nighter – February 13 & 14.

We also have a couple of new ones for Ricky Skaggs – June 21 in Victorville, California, at Huck Finn Jubilee, and August 15 in Nashville, Indiana, at Little Nashville Opry.

And wouldn’t you know it, the only update that had more than two dates during the past couple of hours wasn’t even for a musician. New dates for funny man Jerry Seinfeld are January 2 in Madison, Wisconsin, at Overture Hall, January 3 in Pittsburgh at Benedum Center, January 23 in San Francisco at Louise M. Davies Symphony Hall, February 7 in St. Louis at the Fabulous Fox Theatre and February 20 in Louisville at Louisville Palace Theatre.

During the day we also updated the schedules for Eric Clapton, Pink, Jane’s Addiction, Confederate Railroad, Boyz II Men, Misery Signals, My American Heart, The Raveonettes, The Presidents Of The United States Of America, The Clarks, Chester French, Dr. John, Fishbone, Ian McLagan & The Bump Band, Wu-Tang Clan and all the bands and artists living today. Plus a few that are not.

And that brings us to the end of another adventure in the land of concert data. Thank you for hanging with us today and we hope you can join us again tomorrow as we plunge headfirst into all the artist-date-city-venue information that makes the world go around. G’night!
