Here’s an item that goes totally under the heading of the uncertain, speculation, wishful thinking and maybe. The Indian Express newspaper is reporting that the Manzarek-Krieger Band will be playing the first Fly Music Festival in Noida, India on February 16-17. It just can’t be confirmed on the Manzarek-Krieger Facebook or Ray and Robby’s website. The website, Book My Show, that is supposed to be selling tickets for the event doesn‘t have a listing for the festival. The thing is, looking at the announced touring schedules of Ray Manzarek, Robby Krieger and the Manzarek-Rogers Band (see related articles below), there is a hole in their schedules that could include a quick trip to India for Manzarek-Krieger. Other announced bands for the event include Limp Bizkit and The Wailers and looking at their touring schedules, show no events in India, although The Wailers schedule for February has a week long hole at the time of the festival.
