Day 2, Gipsy King Tour
The Ravinia Festival in Chicago
We crushed it again!
Last night's concert was amazing. We've been taken care of so wonderfully this trip, private dressing rooms, wonderfully catered meals and such hospitality from the tech, crew and the Gypsy Kings. We started right at 8 last night and did our 25-minute set which went over in a an incredible way.
Immediately following our show, Rich and I went to the merchandise table and met with lots of people. It's becoming one of our favorite things to do, the merch table chat. Rich, in his top hat, likes to stand on the outside of the merch table, I like to stand on the inside and
Every time someone asks if we can take a picture with them, I tell them to put it in selfie mode. So much fun!
Rich and I walked around with two friends who came to see the show. Ravinia is such an interesting place, there are seats in the front of the house and off to the sides for many yards back is picnic seating. I am guessing the Garden goes on more than the length of a football field with major buffets, parties, families and groups. And let me tell you, Ravinia know how to do picnics. While we explored and got a feel for the place, people were recognizing us and taking pictures with us and offering us food and drink and to come home with them! We handed out buttons as we walked and made so many new fan friends.
At the end of the evening, we stayed right near the exit, bidding everyone farewell and a great evening, and yes Rich looked the part because of his top hat.
As we were getting ready to leave ourselves, Rich is telling me, “It is golden! Tonight was a test in a true city. And I think we passed very well.”
If you're in the Midwest or Northeast USA in September we would love for you to join us at one of the many venues we'll be performing in. Below we have listed the tour dates.

SPECIAL FAN PACKAGE
NEW VIDEO and SINGLE RELEASE
The new video and single for The Fearlessness is the title song. This rocking anthem about being fearless is a timeless song. The song is going out to radio stations across the United States right now and being added to more stations every day. The single will be available as a digital download on September 7th as well.
The video was shot by Bryce Johnson at the top of the Park City ski resort (10,000 feet above sea level!) and right where we got married 25 years ago so it is a very special spot. This is the first time we’ve worked with Bryce and we think you’ll agree that it’s an incredibly beautiful work of art! We’ll be promoting the video and single all over the place so please help us make it go viral by sharing and posting on any and all social media. We SO appreciate our fans help!
