Robby Krieger Announces Solo Tour
Something’s cooking in Doors guitarist Robby Krieger’s kitchen.
Krieger has scheduled a new solo tour with his band Robby Krieger’s Jam Kitchen that will kick off on Aug. 9 in Sturgis, S.D., and run through early September, when it wraps up in Orlando. As ABC News Radio reports, Krieger’s Jam Kitchen lineup includes a number of seasoned rock vets, including a pair of former Frank Zappa sidemen (bassist Arthur Barrow and keyboardist Tommy Mars), War saxophonist Larry Klimas and session drummer Tom Brechtlein.
The new dates represent a renewed burst of solo activity for Krieger, who last toured in late 2012 behind his most recent album, the instrumental collection ‘Singularity.’ No word yet on whether the Jam Kitchen have plans to enter the studio after coming back from the road, or if these dates — which include a stop at the Buffalo Chip Music Festival in Sturgis — will be preserved for posterity with a live album.
