    The J. Geils Band will tour, without J. Geils! Oh, the irony.

    The band will be giving its fans another dose of hard-driving rock 'n' roll as they unite once again for a special limited tour. The band is hitting the road with original members Peter Wolf (lead vocals), Seth Justman (keyboards), Danny Klein (bass) and Magic Dick (harmonica) and will be joined by longtime associates Duke Levine (guitar) and Tom Arey (drums).

    Guitarist John Geils will not be joining this tour due to an ongoing legal dispute between The J. Geils Band and John Geils' solo record label, Francesca Records. The band is challenging Francesca Records' baseless claim to ownership and control of the rights to the name J. Geils Band. Unfortunately, John Geils' decision to align with Francesca Records has hindered a working relationship with The J. Geils Band.

    Boo. Moving right along, it seems…

    Once again, The J. Geils Band will be joined by The Uptown Horns and background vocalists, who appeared with the group on their historic "Freeze Frame Tour" in the early 1980s.

    Wolf said, "To rock it up once again with The J. Geils Band, gives us a chance to share a body of work that we created and enjoy performing."
