Former [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Live[/lastfm] frontman [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Ed Kowalczyk[/lastfm] has confirmed a string of U.S. tour dates this March as part of the Open Wings Broken Strings Tour. The run will also feature [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Tonic[/lastfm] lead singer [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Emerson Hart[/lastfm] and [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Sixpence None the Richer[/lastfm] singer [lastfm link_type="artist_info"]Leigh Nash[/lastfm].
The first show will take place at the the State Theatre in State College, Pennsylvania on March 1 and the tour will continue through March 6 when they will wrap things up at the Spruce Peak Arts Center in Stowe, Vermont.
“About halfway through the show you realize you’re the whole show. You can’t throw to a big band jam or something like that. You are just there with the people in a different sort of way,” Kowalczyk says of the acoustic show, which is in its second year.
“I think a lot of people were surprised with the voice and clarity that my songs had without the production and [a full band]. That kind of started a whole process of reconnecting with the fans, inspiring new material, and re-inspiring me as a person,” he adds.
