As we mentioned earlier in the week, Bobby is back in the States to perform at the CMJ Fest in New York. This will be the first show to kick off the Fall installation of his Dangerous Summer Tour.
The tour has taken in the USA, Canada, France, Germany, Spain and the UK and is now set to continue with a further 38 US shows before ending at the Mercury Lounge in NYC on the 19th December.
According to Monica’s article, the tour has been so succesful in Europe, that it has led to Bobby’s manager, Phil Taylor to schedule future European dates:
Says Taylor, “We were holding off booking a longer European tour in January, as we have been waiting for confirmation of dates in Australia, New Zealand and Japan for that period. Unfortunately these dates were not confirmed in time for our plans, so we have decided that Bobby Long will tour Europe again in January and February before heading back to America for SXSW and another major American and Canadian tour from late March to August.” “Bobby and I were really looking forward to him playing for the many Australian fans who email us, but I am sorry to say we will have to wait a little longer before getting over there.”
And what about any future albums? Are there any in the works?
Bobby has been in the studio this week with Liam Watson at Toe Rag Studios in east London. Early rough mixes are sounding very strong and Bobby has clearly gelled with his band. So far five tracks are complete and ready to be mixed.

Also, out there on the interwebs, is a fun new interview with Bobby from the gals at The Fash-Pack. This interview covers everything from the standard ”what are you up to currently” to who is his favorite WWE wrestler and who he would kiss under the mistletoe. My fave question/answer was this one:
FP: Who would you kiss, marry and avoid out of – Kate Moss – Kate Winslet and Katy Perry
BL: Oh I would Avoid Kate Moss, Marry Kate Winslet ( She has a farm right?) and kiss Katy Perry.
