Friends, countrymen (and Canadians), we're roamin'! That's right, Nato Coles & the Blue Diamond Band will be ON TOUR this June, to Ottawa Explosion (check their website for more info) and back, with some killer dates in the Northeast, Midwest, and even eastern Canada!

The venues in Pittsburgh and Ft. Wayne will be announced asap - I wanted to have them up today, however we felt announcing the tour RIGHT NOW even with a couple things being finalized was more important than waiting for every little detail to be ironed out.

p.s. originally the plan was to play Ft. Wayne, Indiana on Thursday 6/23, and for a short time this post reflected that... but sad to say, we are not.
