This year Andy will embark on 3 somewhat simultaneous tours. He will head back out with Dream Theater, hitting South Korea, Indonesia, and Japan. He will play arena shows with Prince in Australia as a special guest and directly accompany Prince through the catalog of many of his hits. His solo Pale Blue Tour will cover many parts of the planet. In all, Andy will be playing in America, Brazil, Zimbabwe, Singapore, Mexico City, France, England, Austria, Germany, and Switzerland, China, Japan, Australia, New Zealand, Southeast Asia, Greece, Spain, Portugal, Russia, and India. And Guitar Masters will reach the UK, France, Germany, and Switzerland. It’s a daunting itinerary. But Andy takes the dates day by day, with nose-to-the-grindstone D.I.Y. ethos like hauling his own gear, maintaining his own equipment, and always being accessible after shows. Andy’s shows have a homespun intimacy, hiss stage demeanor is warm and witty and he’s always generous with revealing his unique conception of the acoustic guitar to his fans.
