Peter Hammill news update

From his WEBSITE:

Many moons have passed...but you may be interested, now, to go and check out www.peterhammill.com where, finally, some lyric-labyrinthine adventures await, thanks to the indefatigable labours of adrian. more on this anon, but it's only right to let you know that something's been/is afoot there....

Also, of course, I'm back sane and safe (-ish) in mind and body from the Spanish tour. Very enjoyable but tiring in spite of days off - the distances to travel are *big*. A nice collection of grand pianos for the most part and a variable collection of songs.

And now.... Well, apparently my visa for the US has been approved, so it looks as though all systems are go for the tour. I still have to do the face to face interview (8 am Monday morning at the Embassy in London, have to stay overnight in the city, have to get in the queue an hour and a half beforehand) and then my passport has to get back to the office in time for me to pick it up before flying. Small considerations!

In the slightly later on, an extra date has now been added to the VdGG Tokyo story...

27/28/29th June, O-West, Shibuya, TOKYO, Japan

Possibly later in the summer/early fall after the Japan VdGG dates. But nothing announced yet that I know of.

So far there is nothing confirmed on Hammill’s website sofasound.com, but web searches show that there are shows scheduled in late Sept. / early Oct. in San Francisco, Kansas City, Milwaukee and Ferndale, MI. No word of any other shows

I just heard about 2nd leg of Hammill tour in East North America. Anybody knows which songs he is presumptively going to sing on this gig ??
