With around three weeks to go before our big Red Rocks show, I thought I'd fill you in on our upcoming USA trip. We have had some time at home to charge the batteries after our recent mammoth 65 show North America tour, and we are raring to go again.
Everyone in the band and crew are buzzing about this summer run of shows - really excited.
We have been invited to play the California Mid State Fair on July 25th, joining a bill featuring Huey Lewis and the News, John Mayer and Van Halen. We will be arriving in Paso Robles in time to see David Lee Roth and Eddie Van Halen in action, and Bobby and myself in particular are big fans of the band so we are looking forward to that. I might as well JUMP!
Next up we travel across to Las Vegas for a performance at the luxurious Mandalay Bay Resort. We are performing on the 'Beach' stage where the audience can actually stand in the pool all around the stage to watch the show, so there will be hopefully be some time for a swim and some sunshine there.
After that we are back in beautiful Aspen Colorado at the very cool Belly Up club, which we played last year too. It's a funky little club, pretty intimate and different to our normal type of show, and the setting is wonderful with the Aspen mountains in the background. Aspen is 8,000 ft above sea level so you find yourself quite short of breath sometimes...
