David Cook recently announced plans to extend his first solo tour …The Declaration Tour ‘ 2009 through October 2009, with confirmed dates on sale now till August 21st. David has been criss-crossing the country since February 2009.
Maybe I’ll finally get to catch one of his shows…
David recently told ABC News Radio that there may be some changes to the set for these summer tour dates. He said, …I know were talking about throwing in some new covers and really trying to reach back a little bit and pull some other stuff from prior to ‹Idol, but were still trying to get people to pay attention to [our] record. So I think the basic elements will be there, but well try to keep it fresh. He said he was happy he and the guys decided to start the tour by playing small venues at colleges ‘ he calls it a …a great learning experience, and explains, …As a band, we really tightened up a lot and the fact that we were able to do that kind of away from the brightest lights imaginable was probably for the better. I think in the long run, itll only help how we present ourselves with the live show.
As for whether or not the college tour won him any new fans, David told ABC News Radio, …I dont know. I hope so but the jury still out! But, he adds, …Ive been really amazed and humbled by how well the record been received, and I gotta think that some of that has to do with the ears that we grabbed hold of that didnt maybe watch the show, but came to the live gig.
Bonus: David teaches Meat Loaf how to play guitar! Heh. Reportedly, this all went down at producer, Rob Cavallo’s house. More at Meatloaf’s twitter HERE.
