"I'm looking forward to going back out West in the fall," Peters notes. "We tried to play Victoria when we were in Vancouver, but there were no venues available. I've never taken any of my own tours to Saskatoon, but we've had a lot of fans writing-in and asking me to come there, so here I come!"

Earlier this year, Peters completed a successful and frenzied tour of the "Motherland," India, Peters performed in Dubai, for the USO and the troops - including two days aboard the USS Eisenhower in the middle of the Indian Ocean.

"All this traveling around just helps me come up with new material. I see things. I talk about them. That's what I do."
