The Tour Chronology: 2011

The Satriani World Tour continues with dates in January, to be followed with more dates in various regions worldwide later in the year.

In February KMB tours Europe briefly.

Both MK and BB release live CD/DVD sets taped during the May 2010 MKB/BBB tour.

Recordings for several projects (Scambot 2, the Andy Partridge project, a Jamie Kime album) are underway. Fans get the chance to watch MK work through the magic of live webcasts.

Also MK recorded keys on four tunes with Chickenfoot. And some writing, playing (bass and synth) and recording with Mick Mars and Terry Bozzio.

MKB/BBB tour the Westcoast in October.

And finally, the US premiere of The Universe Will Provide.

MK notes: I’ve been home about a week from the Satriani tour. Gotta say, suddenly being in Joe’s band was a total surprise for me last year and to have it turn into such a major component of my existence for the past half-year was shocking and awesome. I LOVED the tour. Everybody in the band, crew and management team are fantastic and I felt completely fortunate to be a part of it. There will be more touring later in the year in some regions we didn’t get to visit this time around, and I am really looking forward to it. [source: the Keneallist Feb.3 2011]
