Spencer had been out of the spotlight for decades when, two years ago, the promoter of the Notodden Blues Festival in Norway, Jostein Forsberg, convinced Spencer to perform publicly again. He paired the rock legend with some of the best musicians in Norway, most of whom had been playing together for twenty-five years. Their performance at the Festival was a huge success.
Completely taken by the sympathetic backing provided by the Norwegian musicians, Spencer used the group to record his first album in 27 years, Precious Little, on Blind Pig Records, which Vintage Guitar magazine said “may well be the pop m usic comeback of the past several decades.”Of the upcoming tour, Spencer said, "Having not played 'live' in America since 1972 is already rather daunting, along with 'shipping coals to Newcastle' by playing blues there with a group of Norwegian musicians! But it's exciting for us to be charting unfamiliar territory, and we want to give our best to the audiences."Art Tipaldi, senior editor for Blues Revue and Blues Wax, said, "In the past two years, I've seen Jeremy Spencer perform four shows at the Notodden Blues Festival and I can tell you that each show was better than the previous. Jeremy has lost none of the fire from those Fleetwood Mac days. His slide guitar still send s chills. Every note I've heard Jeremy play showcases his great commitment to the blues. I've seen him ignite the stage with a mixture of classic Chicago blues and smart contemporary songs. This tour is the music rediscovery of 2008."Scheduled dates:July 10 St. Louis, MO Beale on BroadwayJuly 11 Berwyn, IL Fitzgerald'sJuly 12 Belleville, WI Belleville American Music Festival
