"I am really excited to be part of Joe's touring band again," says Hamm. "I look forward to seeing alot of my fans around the world. Unfortunately, [to do the tour] I had to cancel or re-schedule many commitments that I had — Clinics in Beijing, Hong Kong, Indonesia and Japan. To my fans and friends in Asia I would like to apologize, but I'll be touring Asia with Joe early next year, and we will re-schedule the clinics. I am also going to miss teaching at the Guitar Workshop in Toronto on July 21-22, but my good friend Billy Sheehan has agreed to take over. Thanks Billy!"
