My Friends," "Yellow Submarine," "Photograph," "You're Sixteen,"
"Whiter Shade of Pale," "Do You Feel Like I Do," "Signed Sealed
and Delivered," "Feelin' Alright," "Sunshine of Your Love,"
"White Room" and more.

Previous lineups have included Dr. John, Billy Preston, Joe
Walsh, Levon Helm, Rick Danko, Jim Keltner, Nils Lofgren,
Clarence Clemons, Dave Edmunds, Todd Rundgren, Burton Cummings,
Timothy B. Schmidt, Timmy Capello, Mark Rivera, Randy Bachman,
Mark Farner, Felix Cavaliere, John Entwistle, and, helping out
his Dad out on drums for two of the tours, Zak Starkey.

everyone who's emailed us with questions and info and helped us
sort out some conflicting info due to the changes in the tour,
especially the Seattle date. As before, we'll post any additions
we hear about and we'd appreciate hearing from you if a date is
announced in your area that we haven't had on the schedule.
