In an interview with accessAtlanta, Bruce appears to confirm a couple of tours for later in the year: some time with Bob Weir in September and October, and before that some dates with guitar monster Pat Metheny in July and August.
Both stories are corroborated by HDBahn on the Bruuuce.com board, who was at Bruce’s recent show in Greenville and heard Bruce announce both tours from the stage.
Pat guested on both Harbor Lights and Hot House, and had this to say on his own website about their work:
i loved working with bruce on those albums – it was a challenge for me; bruce’s music is actually pretty hard – especially the solo at the end of the tune “harbor lights” – that is right up there with some of the hardest stuff i have ever had to solo over.
The appreciation is mutual, with Bruce referring to Pat’s solo on Country Doctor as “glorious”. They also collaborate on the “Bruce Hornsby and Friends” DVD released in 2004.
Ten years on, we have more to look forward to. Stay tuned for dates as we get them!
