WELCOME TO ONE OF THE WEB'S LONGEST RUNNING BLOGS
Bassist Tony Levin has been sharing his road experiences here since 1996 (which sounds fairly recent,
but in the Internet world, it isn't. Even the terms weblog and blog were coined in 1997 and 1999.)
We have over 400 archived tour pages on the site (with about 6,800 photos) and we're happy to have had 4 million visits.
March 7, Nyon, Switzerland
We've started the Crimson ProjeKCt Europe tour I'm calling Coffee in Kiev.
I've got the first two pages up with diaries and photos.

Lots has been going on since the Stick Men tour in California. My brother Pete and I have long planned to do a jazz album, and we've got the tracks about done now - Pete playing organ and piano, me playing
cello and bass. I expect that to come out next September.
I went to England for a week of preliminary rehearsing for next Fall's King Crimson touring. With three drummers, we have a lot of work to do just organizing who plays what. I'll update on that next
June, when we rehearse again. I may know more then about what material we'll play... or I may not!
Getting ready now for the Crimson ProjeKCt tour starting in Tel Aviv in a bit over a week. I hope to have some good photos to share from that tour.
Jan 24, Sacramento
We're out on a short leg of Stick Men shows, in Texas and California. All have gone nicely. I forgot my camera battery charger, so no pictures up so far -- hopefully when I'm back home
next week I can assemble a tour page of the pics I'm taking with my cell phone.
In the tour dates below, I've just added the single Levin Brothers gig next week at Dave's Cafe in Saugerties. Looks pretty humble there among the long tours... but I'm sure it'll be fun. We're warming
up to go into the studio the following week and record our album.
Jan 12, Kingston
I've been enjoying a few months around home. Mostly have been working on an album I've long hoped-for; a duo jazz album with my brother Pete. Won't be out til next Fall, but we've got
the material written and in shape now.
Stick Men have a new live CD just released. It's titled Power Play, culled from our performances over this past year. It's available for pre-order now from Markus's online store:
We, Stick Men, are heading to Texas this week for a couple of shows there (we hope some of you can come out to see us - dates and venues are below.) We'll play Dallas and Austin (no idea why not
Houston). Then we'll head to California for shows in Santa Cruz, San Francisco, Sacramento and Whittier. For us it's just a small taste of the longer tours we'll have later in the year, but
we're hoping to have some decent turn-out from fans in Texas and California -- it's becoming increasingly difficult for bands at our level to tour the U.S. in more than one small area.
The website has been pretty quiet for the few months since Peter Gabriel's Europe tour - I expect to have more pages of photos and diaries coming, and if the tours planned for this year all come through,
I'd better have my camera lenses clean because there'll be a lot of them indeed!

A happy healthy new year to you all.
Our January tour in New Zealand and Australia has had to be re-scheduled to June! New dates are below, and more will be added before then.
I guess that means it'll be a Winter tour instead of a Summer one. Hope the change didn't inconvenience those who got tickets - it sure involved a lot of
schedule juggling for us.
That gives me a few more weeks before heading to Texas and California for shows with Stick Men. (Those dates are also listed below.) We're preparing a new release of Stick Men live in concert, and hope to
have it ready for the mid-January tour.
Only other news is that my brother Pete and I have been writing and preparing to do a jazz album together - our first duo album after quite a few years making music! If things go well,
it'll be ready for release later this year.
Nov 16, Kingston
More Peter Gabriel Spring dates have been added - cool places like Kiev, Lotz, Ostrava, Vilnius, Riga... some of these cities I haven't been to before - it'll be great fun, I can't
wait to take some pictures.
In a more humble schedule addition, but equally important to me and the guys in Stick Men, we have added a Santa Cruz show on Jan. 22nd. That's to follow our two Texas shows,
in Dallas and Austin.
All tour updates are below, and, amazingly, there will be a lot more coming!
In a more inside-the-band issue, we are now looking at the flight options after our Perth, Australia show, to the next show, in Dallas, Texas. Could be the longest travel day ever for
us. We'll see.
Nov 6, Brattleboro, VT
I'm in Vermont to record, as I often get a chance to do when not on tour.
A few more upcoming show dates are below -- you'll find Bratislava, Budapest, Bucharest, and Lodz added to PG's tour -
also the dates of our Three of a Perfect Pair" music camp in August.
More Stick Men dates for January will be confirmed soon. I'm hoping for Stick Men East Coast dates in April, Europe dates in June, more PG shows in May, and one of these days we'll have
confirmed dates for King Crimson starting in September.
Worth keeping an eye on the page here if you're interested in any of those - I post all shows as soon as I hear they're confirmed.

Like everyone, I'm sad at the passing of Lou Reed. I'd played with him only a bit (on the Berlin album) but also appeared in a movie with him, Paul Simon's One Trick Pony, where Lou played the
part of an insensitive record producer!
He'll be greatly missed.
I've added pages for Peter Gabriel shows in Glasgow, Manchester, and
two pages of my favorite photos from the tour.
A few more concert dates are added below - Stick Men on the West Coast in January, The Crimson ProjeKCt in N.Z. & Australia in January, and one more Peter Gabriel show added to his May tour next year.
Oct 23, London
A lot of dates and plans are coming together for 2014.
More of The Crimson ProjeKCt shows, in France, Italy, Norway and Spain, have been confirmed, and are listed below.
And it's looking like there will be TCP shows sooner than that, in New Zealand and Australia, this coming January - not quite confirmed yet.
The Three of a Perfect Pair Camp, with Adrian Belew, Pat Mastelotto and me, will be held again in August, the week of the 11th.
There's a website and a Facebook page about it.
I hope some of you can attend. We had a lot of fun at the last ones.
Peter Gabriel is starting to announce more shows, next April and May, and as more are confirmed, I'll list them below on this page.
I met, here in London, with Robert Fripp, and plans are percolating for King Crimson, with a new lineup, to tour next September and onward.
Stick Men have a confirmed show on Jan 25th, at The Center Theater in Whittier, CA.
and we're eagerly awaiting other confirmed shows on the West Coast in that time period.
Here on the Peter Gabriel tour, I've put recent page up for the show in Berlin, brought the
index page up to date.
Oh yes, and put up two pages of the shows here: London 1 and London 2
