A Statement from Rick about Touring

A Statement from Rick about Touring

As there has been a lot of confusion as to my upcoming USA touring, I feel a need to clarify exactly what the situation is and correct any misconceptions.

In March, I will be playing the first short leg of a tour of my one-man show in America, with a second leg to follow in the autumn, which will be longer.

These will be the last of the one-man tours in America, but that does not mean the end of the one-man shows completely. I will also continue to appear in America at one-off events whenever invited, as I truly enjoy performing in the USA to some of the best and most knowledgeable audiences in the world.

The one-man shows will also continue as final tours in oher countries through until 2027.

The reasons for bringing the one-man show tours to an end are twofold. Firstly, I have to admit that these days I have to pace myself so much more when it comes to travelling, but the main reason is simply because I have so many other projects lined up that I desperately want to do and as time is limited, something has to give in order to make way for these to be done.

I will still continue to perform shows with the English Rock Ensemble whenever possible, and also any one-off ventures that might come along, including another rock cruise and joint projects with other artists.
