The list is final as of this writing, though Hawai’i may still surprise me with another booking outside HNL. Oh, and if you’re more of a visual learner, here’s a map. Hawai’i will get added to that once I complete it.

In other words: I haven’t been everywhere this year.  But I’ve come damn close.  (And yes, I still want to live in Anchorage.)

I wish I could tell you how many towns and suburbs and cities are on this list through the sheer force of will of a single person in that town who REALLY wanted me to come to their place and not somewhere else.  I couldn’t honor every request, but I nearly broke myself trying, because you guys are worth it.

If you Twitter-catch me snoozing a little on the job through the next month or two — this list would be why.  Currently I’m sleeping a lot, wrapping up tour business, planning Hawai’i, writing postcards, and breaking out my studio because I have an album to finish.  Oh, and I hafta do my taxes.  From last year.  *gulp*

Love to all — Marian

  1. Marian, it was obvious on meeting you how much you really wanted to be able to go to EVERY place where people wanted you. No way that you could make everyone happy, but you sure did your best. (And your best was pretty damn good!!)

    Take a rest. You deserve it!! We may miss you, but iif we don’t understand, what kind of friend-fans are we?? :)

  2. I count 13 shows in 12 Canadian cities in 6 provinces plus 118 shows in 106 US cities in 50 states, for a total of 131 shows.
