Dates, Dates & More Dates ...
A very extensive tour of Canada is what Anne Murray is planning for April and May of 2008. Look for Ms. Murray to appear in places like Moncton, Charlottetown, Ottawa, Montreal, Kinston, Vancouver and Victoria.
We have four new Ani DiFranco dates such as New Orleans on March 16, Los Angeles on April 4, Vancouver, BC, on April 21 and Victoria, BC, on April 22.
And we just posted a mess of Cross Canadian Ragweed dates for you to peruse with stops in San Luis Obispo, CA, Flagstaff, AZ, and a six-night stand in Steamboat Springs, CO.
Ellis Paul adds Vienna, VA, Sacramento, CA, and West Milford, NJ, for February; Cory Morrow's new dates include Houston and Corpus Christi in February; Better Than Ezra play the ol' hometown of New Orleans in January and Hamell On Trial adds three-night stand in Midland, TX.
During the past couple of hours we also updated the schedules for Cheryl Wheeler, Connie Kaldor, Ryan James, The Whigs, Tony Furtado, The Most Serene Republic and Dan Bern.
But we're only halfway through our daily mission in life and that means more dates and tour data yet to post. Check out all the action on Your Latest Update, scheduled for sometime around 3 PM (PST), from Pollstar.com!
