04-14-2003New survey on-line; Beginnings of tour announced; John Popper arrested in Texas for marijuana possession

Some close friends of the band have assembled a thorough survey designed to help gather important information on the band's fan base. To sweeten the pot a little bit, the band is offering two VIP tickets to the show of your choice to one lucky survey-taker. The results of the survey will be used to help the band decide how to better serve its fans in the future, so take a few minutes and fill it out, if you're so inclined.

Within hours of the announcement below, several more dates had been announced for Blues Traveler's summer tour. As predicted, the tour looks like it will start in late May with dates in the south, continue into June (most dates yet to be determined) and then run through Red Rocks in July and into August. While several new dates are out now, the rest of the tour schedule should flesh out over the next few weeks. Keep checking back at the tour dates page to find out when the band will be hitting your town.

In the "bad news travels fast" category, it has been confirmed that John Popper was arrested in Texas for possession of less than two ounces of marijuana. As reported by the New York Post's Page Six:

Popper popped
HARD-PARTYING Blues Traveler frontman John Popper was arrested for marijuana possession Sunday while driving through Sweetwater, Texas. The band was putting the finishing touches on its upcoming album "Truth Be Told" when the bust went down. A rep for the Sweetwater sheriff's office confirmed to PAGE SIX that Popper was arrested Sunday and posted bond the next day, charged with a class B misdemeanor for carrying less than 2 ounces of pot. A rep for the band says, "Hopefully, this will just go away."
As usual, the Smoking Gun (www.thesmokinggun.com) was on the case, digging up a mug shot only hours after the story broke.
