After a few months of silence from their end, Blues Traveler yesterday
incomplete plans for a two-month fall tour, largely
covering the south and east coasts. The tour begins as previously announced
at Mobile, Alabama's Bayfest, and winds up in their hometown of New York at
the famed Roseland Ballroom, site of many a memorable Blues Traveler show.
While mostly shows at small clubs, [Portland, Maine's Asylum holds a mere
700] the tour also includes several larger, outdoor shows - aside from
Bayfest, the band is also playing a Mercedes-Benz environmental benefit gig
as well as another outdoors at the University of Alabama. Spots still appear
to be open between October 7th and October 20th so stay tuned for updates as
well as ticket information when they come out.
From the other end of the country, Stolen Ogre reports:
Saturdays benefit raised over $32,000 for the Northwest Burn Foundation. We
appreciate the overwhelming support we received. The video and audio webcast
has been archived on www.stolenogre.com
Shortly after our concert performance on Saturday, August 26th, Stolen Ogre
was informed of the sudden passing of bassist Allen Woody. We would like to
extend our prayers and condolences to Allen's family, Gov't Mule and music
fans worldwide. We have not only lost an incredible musician but an
incredible, warm fascinating man. Thank you Allen for all your love and
music. You will live on in our hearts and minds forever...
This streaming event will be available on our website for about a month and
is dedicated to the memory of Allen Woody and Bob Sheehan. This one's for
you... We love you and stay in touch...
