Timothy B. Schmit Sets Spring Tour

by VVN Music

With there being little to no chance of another Eagles reunion, Timothy B. Schmit has struck out on his own with new music and tours.

Originally a member of Poco, Schmit joined the Eagles in 1977 after the Hotel California tour and appeared on the albums The Long Run (1979) and Long Road Out of Eden (2007) and was part of their reunion tours.

Last September, Schmit released his sixth solo album, Leap of Faith, and has been touring on and off in support including his current west coast shows. Beginning April 18, he brings the tour to mid American and the east with shows in Chicago, Cincinnati, New York and a number of other locations.

The dates:
  • 04/18 – Chicago, IL – City Winery Chicago
  • 04/19 – Cincinnati, OH – Live At The Ludlow Garage
  • 04/22 – Kent, OH – The Kent Stage
  • 04/25 – Cohoes, NY – Cohoes Music Hall
  • 04/27 – Bay Shore, NY – YMCA Boulton Ctr. For The Perf. Arts
  • 04/28 – Hartford, CT – Infinity Hall Hartford
  • 04/30 – Jim Thorpe, PA – Penn's Peak
  • 05/02 – Annapolis, MD – Rams Head On Stage
  • 05/03 – Annapolis, MD – Rams Head On Stage
  • 05/05 – Hopewell, VA – The Beacon Theatre
  • 05/07 – New York, NY – B.B. King Blues Club
  • 05/09 – South Orange, NJ – South Orange Performing Arts Ctr.
  • 05/12 – Ridgefield, CT – Ridgefield Playhouse
Schmit's shows on the tour, so far, have been a mix of his solo work (his last two albums) and songs from his time with Poco and the Eagles. He also included the Eagles song Peaceful Easy Feeling as a dedication to Glenn Frey, which the band recorded before Timothy became a member.
