The Tour Chronology: 2001

A new phase in the world of Mike Keneally: Mike Keneally’s Circus of Values!

MK and BB go on an acoustic tour for Taylor Guitars.

In May, a 7-piece MK-BFD (with new drummer Nick D’Virgilio) embarks on the Dancing 2001 US Tour.

Following this tour, MK teams up with Steve Vai for the G3-Summer Tour (June/July), which also includes Joe Satriani and John Petrucci. After this MK takes a much deserved rest.

MK releases Wooden Smoke.

In October MK-BFD make their European debut at the Groningen Marathon Festival.

In November a 4-piece MK- BFD tours the US.

“Mike acoustic, features Andy West on ‘Waiting For Williams.’ Recorded from webcast and converted from mp3, so the sound quality isn’t pristine but it’s quite listenable.

One of the interview segments features a phone call from Doug Boucher.” -RS
