By the time we are back on the road with the Dream Again Tour it will be a full two years since my last concert engagement. I am counting down the days to the first show. I miss the audiences. I miss my band and our tour crew. This is going to be a very special tour: we’ve had lots of time to brainstorm new, and sometimes unexpected, songs for the set list, and I’m very excited to share them with fans around North America.
