James here. We’re in rehearsals for this summer‘s tour with Jackson Browne, which starts in Chicago on the 29th. I can’t tell you how excited everyone in the band and crew feels about finally seeing you, our audience, again. Some of you have held onto your tickets for the better part of two years. Now, at long last, Jackson and I are going to play those concerts. We studied long and hard over when we might safely go back out and I still think that this August is the right window of time for our return. I hope that most of you have done your duty and gotten vaccinated. We all have and we’re taking all the right steps to be safe as we travel across the country. I want you to be safe too and, with that in mind, I just wanted to encourage anyone who feels like wearing a mask to go ahead and do so. If I were going to a concert in these times, I know I’d mask up. That’s it for now. See you in a minute.
