Vida Blue has planned a nine-show East Coast tour beginning April 18. The

tour will end at the Orpheum Theatre in New Orleans -- on April 27, the

first weekend of JazzFest, with the New Deal opening.

For the April 27 show, tickets ($25) will be on sale February 22 at

10:00am Central via Ticketmaster (504-522-5555 or

Page is putting the finishing touches on Vida Blue's studio album,

primarily recorded last fall in New Orleans, and will be mixing the tracks

later this month with longtime collaborator Jon Siket. The album is due

out in early summer on Elektra. The band expects to tour again in July.

appearance with another act last week. Here's the rundown:

Tower Group, Doctor Jones, Nobby Reed Project, and the Seth Yacavone Band.
