NEWS - Rick James Tour Will Be His Last
(3/8/02, 10 a.m. ET) -- Rick James is on the road, but don't put off getting tickets--this is his farewell tour. James and his Stone City Band have played a handful of dates already, including one at the recently concluded Winter Olympics in Salt Lake City, and they've got shows at B.B. King's Blues Club in New York City tonight and tomorrow (March 8 and 9).
LAUNCH asked James why this is a farewell tour. "I'm basically doing it for a couple of reasons," he said. "One is, it's an ego thing, to prove I can still do it. And the other side of it is to give people that didn't get a chance to see a great band, the Stone City Band, and hear some really good music, and kind of take people back to a time that was simpler."
More dates are being added to the itinerary that follows.
Rick James & the Stone City Band tour dates (subject to change):
March 8,9 - New York, NY - B.B. King's Blues Club
May 1 - West Palm Beach, FL - SunFest
May 3 - Mashantucket, CT - Foxwoods Casino
May 4 - Atlantic City, NJ - Trump Marina
May 5 - Atlanta, GA - Music Midtown Festival
June 7 - Gulfport, MS - Grand Casino Gulfport
June 9 - Atlanta, GA - Chastain Park Amphitheatre
-- Bruce Simon, New York
