And, of course his stream-of-(sub)consciousness humor and anecdotes. Songs & stories from his work as solo artist, as well as with the Posies, Big Star, REM, Neil Young, Mercury Rev, Ringo Starr, Robyn Hitchcock... For this tour Ken is also revisiting his landmark album Touched as a focal/departure point for the evening.
