Will there be more of these shows in other parts of the country?

Looks like this has fallen off the internet...can't seem to find ANY info on this show anywhere.

I was torn about this; on one hand I think it's a bit tacky doing it without the major force behind the LP, that being one Gram Parsons, but on the other hand, it will be nice to see Hillman & McGuinn play together with a fine backup band. I have my tickets already for the show in Albany.
