Bob Cheevers announces UK dates for 2018

Bob Cheevers has announced a UK tour for 2018 for the 13th time – hopefully a piano won’t fall on his head as he steps off the plane. He will be promoting his epic boxed-set retrospective “Fifty Years” released January of this year in Europe, featuring 83 songs that chronicle his musical journey that includes the writing of over 3000 songs in multiple genres, touring around the world and decades living in the music centers of Memphis, Los Angeles, Nashville, and Austin.  Accompanying Cheevers on the tour will be London guitarist Geoff Haves, who with his wife, Janis, will provide tour support as the duo Haves and Haves (which makes you think the Havenots should reunite just so they can do a joint tour called the Haves and Haves and Havenots).  Tour dates below.
