They kick off their world tour this weekend.
(Now, I know this may illicit yawns and comments like “why bother, they should’ve hung it up when Keith died”, and I understand completely.)
For THIS fan, though, these are exciting times. There’s a new CD in the can, with a single (“Mirror Door”) being played on the BBC. The worn-out setlist is getting revamped, with promises of “rarities” being sprinkled into the mix.
And Pete has what he calls his “master plan”: the first concert tour to be available on on the Web—every show. Proceeds will be going to charity; they hope to donate $10,000,000 when it’s all said and done.
It’s a year-long venture, Og only knows if Roger’s voice will hold out. But, when my favorite guitarist starts pounding the stage again, it’s cause for celebration.
