After a celebrated Fall Tour, Mike and his band return to the road this March for a 17-date headlining club tour in support of his studio album, Moss (in stores now).
Like the band's November run, the tour begins on the West Coast, March 5th in Eugene, OR and snakes its way across the country, ending with a hometown show for much of the band in Burlington, VT. Along the way, the band will make stops in San Diego, Lake Tahoe, Telluride, Atlanta, Asheville, and will play their first two-nighter at Brooklyn Bowl in Brooklyn, NY. In addition, Mike will play a special show on March 17th at Pageant Theatre in St. Louis, MO with Galactic.
Following five highly acclaimed tours in '08, '09 and '10, Mike returns with the same five-piece lineup, including longtime collaborator Scott Murawski on guitar, Vermonters Craig Myers on percussion and Tom Cleary on keyboards and Brooklyn drummer Todd Isler.
A limited number of tickets are available NOW via a very fast real-time fan presale at http://mikegordontickets.rlc.net for all shows. The fan presale ends this Thursday, January 20th 5PM EST. Tickets will then go on sale through traditional outlets beginning Friday, January 21st.

In a recent conversation with Caller.com's "Weekly Chatter", Umphrey McGee's keyboardist Joel Cummins discusses Umphreys's revolving plans for releasing new music this year. Initially the band had planned to release three EP's over the course of the year. It now appears the Umphrey's is still brainstorming on what's the best way to get the music into their fans hands.
The debate over the releases is a reflection of the changing music business and how many consumers have shifted toward downloading individual songs instead of buying full albums.
"We've really been searching for the right format to put out some new music," Cummins said. "As the music business and the way people digest music change, it's something that we want to adapt to as well and really make it easy and fun for our fans."
Whatever the format the band chooses, Cummins said the new music will be varied. A few songs lean toward the heavier, progressive rock direction of the band's previous CD, "Mantis," while other songs may remind fans of the more groove-oriented feel of earlier Umphrey's McGee material.
"There are a couple of tunes that we've recorded that are in that heavier vein," he said. "That was going to be one of the EPs, some tracks that I think would probably fit in with the 'Mantis' material well. Then some of the other stuff is a little more dance friendly, a little more women friendly, one of those things that never hurts. We like to make music for dudes, but we like to keep the ladies happy, too."
