Next month I’ll be heading back to the UK for a tour that’s been in the works for almost a year. The idea for the “Circus Girl – Without A Net” tour grew out of many conversations after shows that began something like: “Great show, but I wish you’d sung ______”, or “________ is my favorite song, why don’t you ever play it anymore?” When you have a new album out, it’s natural to want to showcase it, and introduce everyone to the new songs. With “Circus Girl”, we’re going to look back and revisit some of the overlooked ones, and some that just fell off the list along the way. In that spirit, this will be an all-request tour – you will make up the set list. I’ll begin taking your requests on April 1 via this website, Twitter, Facebook, and MySpace. Or if you prefer you can just email me.
Please keep a few things in mind:
– specify the particular show (venue, date and city) that you will be attending. We don’t want to do your request without you there.
– give us your name, and any other information you’d like to share – where you’re from, how long you’ve been a fan, a personal anecdote, dedication, reminiscence or just your thoughts on the song you want to hear most.
– please limit your requests to songs that I’ve either written or recorded. No “Free Bird”!
Given the retrospective nature of this tour I thought it would be fun to add a visual component, too, so I’ll be spicing up the set with some slides and photographs – along with the stories behind the songs, behind the scenes, and sometimes behind the stars…
It’s going to be a lot of fun for us, and hopefully for you, too. All the tour dates are now confirmed and listed on the Tour page at gretchenpeters.com. We can’t wait to see you out there.
