They are doing dates after NearFest. So far, the confirmed concerts are in Virginia (Falls Church), Ohio (Cleveland), and Illinois (Chicago).

There are probably more but those are the ones I know about.
 
Strawbs (acoustic) will be opening.

VDGG AND the Acoustic Strawbs. Jeezus, these old guys are keeping busy. The Electric Strawbs just finished a tour. VDGG put together a new album last year.
Keep it up guys Clap

CLEVELAND!?!?!?!?! HUZZAH! I wasn't able to go to Nearfest and VDGG was the biggest band there that I wanted to see. 
Curse your sudden but inevitable betrayal.

You're in luck. From PH's website:
 
"It now looks as though we'll be undertaking a serious (3 week or so) N. American stint in June/July after Nearfest. Things still await absolute and final confirmation (and relevant work visas, naturally), but it looks as though we'll be paying visits to the following places at least: NYC, Washington, Cleveland, Chicago, Buffalo, Annapolis, Toronto, Ottawa, Quebec City and Montreal. I expect (I hope, for the sake of the budget!) that more will appear in due course. Sorry that I can't give fuller information at this point, but I'd better wait until everything is signed, sealed, delivered.... And sorry, but it does look as though this will be an East Coast tour only."
 
I have heard that Milwaukee has also been added, meaning that (with the inclusion of Chicago) this will also encompass the mid-west and not just the east coast. But he was probably pointing that out because it means they won't be doing the west coast (L.A., for example). Too bad because they would draw a lot better in San Fran, L.A., etc than they will in the mid-west...

I'm still hoping for a Philadelphia area show. NEARfest sold out way too quickly. Cry

Good thing we're seeing them at Nearfest, because the NYC show... is during Nearfest.  Guess I won't be able to see that one.  Too bad, I'd like to see the Acoustic Strawbs.

THIS IS ELP
