If this is true then I really hope that he will use the same band for the recording and for the new tour. With a lifetime of teaching music and having seen probably hundreds of live concerts I have never heard a band the equal of these musicians.

With fond memories of Dublin, Edinburgh, Birmingham, Manchester - 2008, Dublin and Liverpool - 2009.

Hartmut did not quote everyhting Roscoe said:
"I really have to look at [Dec. 11] as the last show, simply because there's nothing else on the calendar beyond that. We're talking about making a new record and Leonard is talking about touring again once the new record is out. God willing, that's what we'll all do. But I kind of look at what's on my calendar, and what's on my calendar is the tour is ending Dec. 11. We'll see what happens after that."
For the time being there are no plans for another tour. Let's wait until the new album is out in a year or so, and then we'll see what happens.

Wonderful news. It is great to have hope for another tour, but I acknowledge that the tour he has given us so far is such a precious gift. We are greedy and want more, but we have received so much already.

That said ... please more! I can't deny my true greedy nature I guess :)

May he live to at least 120.

I unfortunately will miss this tour. I look forward to seeing him next time. Either my wife and I will go or my best friend and I. I have never seen him in a live performance and can hardly wait to do so. I was teen in the 60's and do remember "Suzanne", but never really followed him. I just got reintroduced to his music at age 62 and he has blown my mind. I have never been so hypnotized and fascinated by a singer/poet in my life. I hope to participate on this forum and meet many fellow fans. I am from the USA near Indianapolis, Indiana. I will look forward to sharing with all of you. I had difficulty getting signing up and Jarkko helped me out. Seems like a great guy. This is my 1st post...Hi everyone.
