Robert Randolph Resurrecting The H.O.R.D.E. Tour
"We're in the process of re-branding the H.O.R.D.E. tour," Randolph said. "We'll be bringing that out with a group of bands and artists that the fans will really enjoy. We've got Trombone Shorty and John Fogerty and Gary Clark Jr., we're gonna invite Blues Traveler out since it was their original idea back in the early '90s."
Randolph discussed the tour when asked about his tour plans for his upcoming album, Lickety Split, due out July 16. He says that the H.O.R.D.E tour will have a soft launch this fall with 6-7 dates with the artists he named, and the tour will have a larger slate of dates in the spring or summer of 2014.
The name standing for "Horizons Of Rock Developing Everywhere," the H.O.R.D.E. Tour started in 1992, as a more jam-based, less testosterone-y version of Lollapalooza. The initial trek featured Blues Traveler (frontman John Popper and manager Dave Frey were said to have come up with the idea), the Spin Doctors, Phish, the Aquarium Rescue Unit and Widespread Panic. more on this story
