Is sibling rivalry causing Sir Richard Bishop to announce tour dates not long after his brother, Alvarius B, also announced tour dates? Perhaps. But at least this is a sibling rivalry we can all benefit from, unlike, oh, I don’t know — a rivalry between Jeb and George W. Bush to see who can hold the most political offices? The animosity that exists between Noel and Liam Gallagher, or the Jackson family, or the Williams sisters? Yeah, a Sir Richard Bishop tour is much more mutually beneficial to the public than anything those other sibling rivalries have ever produced. Also, I guess you could argue that SRB and AB aren’t really rivals, since they spent all that time playing in Sun City Girls together. But I digress.
SRB has not graced most of the country with his presence in nearly four years, so now he’s hitting the Midwest, East Coast, and Canada. Guitarist Tashi Dorji will be joining him in every city. Thanks, sibling rivalry!
