Keillor’s ‘Radio Romance Tour’ launches July 8

MINNEAPOLIS — Garrison Keillor won’t be taking a summer vacation.

Instead, the creator and host of “A Prairie Home Companion” kicks off a 26-city “Radio Romance Tour 2013” next month.

Keillor wraps up the current season of his popular public radio variety show on Saturday from Tanglewood in Massachusetts.

Then he’s launching his coast-to-coast bus tour July 8 in Spokane, Wash.

He plans 27 concerts, from Washington state to Maine. The shows will not be broadcast.

The tour wraps up Aug. 6 in Interlochen, Mich., the day before Keillor’s 71st birthday.  — The Forum
