Sept 25 Hartsville, SC Private Concert Sept 26 Hartsville, SC Legacy Road Concert with Gene Cotton, Shannon Tanner, Bryson & Danny Nicholson, Center Theater Hey to my friends and fans. I'm so sorry to have to cancel my October tour. Big Bummer. Like the kid who calls home from college, the first thing I have to say is "I'm OK mom, I'm not dying". I'm not old enough to have shingles yet, am I? Well, I guess so. The evil twin of chickenpox has grabbed me and I'm definitely not suitable for public viewing. 4 to 6 weeks they're saying. No fun. Anyone wanna come fluff up my pillow?
I wish you all well, I wish I could be there and I wish these pain pills would kick in soon.
Thanks, apologies, and . . . Break A Leg,
Michael Johnson

I'm so sorry to report that I won't be playing any dates in November either. The shingles thing has nailed me hard. The rash is gone from my face but I still have the "little rivers of fire" as I call them. It makes meditation a bit of a chore. But I'll get through it all and I can't tell you how much I look forward to singing and playing and traveling again. Guess I needed a break. Anyway, I won't be playing the following:
Nov 12: Eddie's Attic in Atlanta
Nov 13: Hawthorne FL
Nov 14: Fernandina Beach, FL

HOWEVER, please note: My good friend Sally Barris WILL be trooping on without me on those dates. Don't miss her. Wonderful sort of neo-traditional stuff. Haunting vocals and songs that are really about something, if you know what I mean. I'm sorry not to be there, but there's no need for you to miss out.
Break A Leg,
Michael Johnson

Dear friends,
This year I won't be performing my annual December show at Gustavus Adolphus College. I've had a wonderful and long run of consecutive concerts there. This year it just wasn't in the cards. Smaller budgets had their way with us this time. It had to happen eventually, you know. But take heart; we are talking about the possibility for again next year. Fingers crossed.
