“Usually once or twice a year between my tours with other projects, I can get out and do solo stuff,” states Rizzo. “This is my first solo tour of the year in support of Legionnaire, and it’s a whole new set list that we're playing. It'll be a great, interactive show. We’ll play a couple cover songs, and we’ll throw in a few songs with vocals, but the majority of the set will be a fun, high-energy instrumental performance.”
