Living Color plan to mark the 25th anniversary of their hit debut album Vivid with a new reissue and a tour centered around the 1988 album, with initial European dates in the Netherlands, France, Switzerland, Austria and Germany slated for mid=March.

March 10: ECI Cultuurfabriek, Roermond, NL
March 11: Melkweg, Amsterdam, NL
March 13: New Morning, Paris, France
March 15: Z7, Pratteln, Switzerland
March 17: Komma, Innsbruck, Austria
March 20: Huxleys Neue Welt, Berlin, Germany

I'm hoping for announcements concerning North American dates very soon!

Of the original quartet, Corey Glover, Vernon Reid and Will Calhoun are all onboaard with Doug Wimbish taking up bass duties. Their set plan is to play Vivid in its entirety.

Could be that a new record will be forthcoming, as well. All real, new music is quite welcome from where I sit.
