Two weeks from lately – Monday, Nov. 12 – we’ll be pronouncing the dates for my 2019 excursion, which we’re calling Strings Connected. We’re going at once from my maximum scaled-down, low-key display ever (this 12 months’s Ridiculously In poor health-Instructed Self-importance Excursion) to my maximum full-blown, over-the-top extravaganza ever. No longer best are we bringing again the costumes and the props and the massive video display, but additionally… each unmarried night time we’ll be acting with a FULL SYMPHONY ORCHESTRA. For actual. No, we’re now not cramming an orchestra on our bus – it’ll be a distinct orchestra in each town. Every now and then it is going to be a “branded” native orchestra (like, say, the Colorado Symphony), and different instances we’ll mainly simply be hanging in combination our personal orchestra with native musicians. And sure, we’re again to PLAYING THE HITS… however we’ll additionally throw in a couple of deeps cuts too (together with a pair songs that we’ve by no means performed earlier than – now not even at the In poor health-Instructed Self-importance Excursion!) In fact it’ll be the similar superb band as all the time – Jim, Steve, Ruben and Bermuda – plus, for the primary time ever we’ll be traveling with feminine background singers (Lisa Popeil, Monique Donnelly and Scottie Haskell – improbable vocalists who’ve gave the impression on lots of my studio recordings). I believe it’s actually going to be a unique display, and I will’t wait to get began! I’m now not allowed to mention a lot else about it earlier than the 12th, however I can say that it’s mainly a 3-month summer season excursion, and sure, we’ll be enjoying a number of puts that we didn’t get round to at the final one (hi, Vancouver, Las Vegas, and all of the state of Florida!) However unfortunately, I’m afraid that, as soon as once more, it’s only a North American excursion – optimistically we’ll hit Australia, Europe, and different portions of the sector another time. Anyway, tickets cross on sale Friday, Nov. 16 at 11:00 AM Jap… all dates and data shall be on weirdal.com. Hope to peer you at the street subsequent 12 months!
