“This is the tour to break in the show, see if you like it, earn the promoters confidence, and see if anybody comes,” he said whimsically in typical Nesmith fashion on his Facebook page. “If it goes well we will keep going later in the summer/fall and hit the states we missed on this half-lap of the U.S.
“If it goes poorly we will stare blankly into the future and post pictures of cute animals and food.”
Nesmith said he would announce venues and ticket information possibly as soon as later today or tomorrow.
