"It goes without saying that I am very much looking forward to once more sharing the stage with District 97---the most exciting, explosive and musical band of its generation. Audiences can also enjoy a little of what blazed the trail 40 years ago in the same evening. How magical!"
Jonathan Schang, drummer and bandleader of District 97 adds:
"Touring Europe for the very first time was a thrill, but to have the opportunity to do so with John was an incredible honor. We found out very quickly that not only was John as amazing a musician as his legacy suggests, but also an extremely fun and enjoyable person to spend time with on the road. I'm very much looking forward to having that experience again, and bringing this presentation back home to the USA."
