Blues Traveler To Join Ben Harper, Barenaked Ladies On H.O.R.D.E. '98
MusicWire, National
Nov 10th, 1997

John Popper told MTV News that Blues Traveler will be back on next year's H.O.R.D.E. tour in a full-time capacity, along with Ben Harper and the Barenaked Ladies. The tour will line-up some 35 to 40 shows next summer, and will kick off in July, most likely after the band's annual July blow-out at Red Rocks.

Popper and his Blues Traveler bandmates launched the H.O.R.D.E. tour six years ago, and will apparently return to a low-key approach after mounting a gargantuan outing this summer. The '97 version of the festival featured a revolving line-up of performers that included Beck, Soul Coughing, Kula Shaker, Ben Folds Five, Primus, Morphine, and the Squirrel Nut Zippers among others, with Neil Young and Crazy Horse headlining the affair. Before this year, the tour had an earthier tone with bands like the Black Crowes, the Dave Matthews Band, Lenny Kravitz, and, of course, Blues Traveler playing past outings.
