Keillor plans 26-city 'Radio Romance Tour'


Humorist Garrison Keillor is not taking a summer vacation.

The creator and host of "A Prairie Home Companion" kicks off his 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 a coast-to-coast bus tour July 8 in Spokane, Wash.

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

Keillor will be joined by comedian Fred Newman, who does sound effects, and the Guy's All-Star Shoe Band. The shows will run more than two hours and will offer duet singing, with either singer Aoife (EE'-fah) O'Donovan or singer and fiddle player Sara Watkins.

The tour wraps up Aug. 6 in Interlochen, Mich.
