Mike Gordon / Leo Kottke Fall Tour Planned

Former Phish bassist Mike Gordon and guitar legend Leo Kottke will hit the road this fall in support of their second collaborative album, “Sixty Six Steps.” Due Aug. 23 via RCA Victor, the set blends a handful of originals with such covers as Aerosmith’s “Sweet Emotion,” Fleetwood Mac’s “Oh Well” and Pete Seeger’s “Living in the Country.”

Although the lone confirmed date at deadline is a Sept. 23 appearance at the Austin City Limits Festival, Gordon tells Billboard.com the outing will last five weeks and hit every part of the United States. And while a handful of recent shows found Gordon and Kottke backed by percussionist Neil Symonette, the fall tour will return to a duo format.

Gordon is also building a recording studio in his Vermont home, in which he plans to focus on writing once the touring and promotion cycle for “Sixty Six Steps” is complete. “Hopefully, I’ll fire up the solo band,” he says, “but that will be some ways down the line.”
