Renaissance On Tour (Again)

There are a few groups that I grew up listening to but never had the chance to see live; with reunion tours and better medicine, I've been able to catch Yes, Genesis, Rush, and others live. But I have always longed to hear Renaissance, with Annie Haslam, in a small venue, with high-end sound.

Today Renaissance 2009 announced a tour starting in Pennsylvania (near Haslam's Bucks County home) in October. I already have tickets; eagerly awaiting news on the lineup. Will Jon Camp will rejoin with his Squire-esque Rickenbacker sound? Rave Tesar (recently toured with Haslam) or John Tout on keyboards? Doesn't matter to me; it's a 30-year old wish granted.

Comments:

I saw Renaiassance at Bath University, UK several times while I was there during the 70's. They were always very strong favourites.
Annie Haslam has (or at least had... I hope she still has) one of the most beautiful soaring voices in rock.
