Earlier this year, Mr. Big announced that “The BIG Finish” tour, which will mark their final world tour. The first leg took place this summer in Asia, but now they’ve unveiled a run of U.S. and European dates.

Each night will see the band performing their 1991 album Lean Into It, including the massive hit “To Be With You” in its entirety.

“I love playing the entire ‘Lean Into It’ record,” says guitarist Paul Gilbert. “We’ve never done that until now, and the songs flow together really well. It’s a first-class seat in the time-travel-machine back to 1992! I was amazed that during my guitar solo, the whole audience started singing along with me! That was the first time that has ever happened! That’s what a live show is about!”

Bass hero Billy Sheehan adds, “We wanted to do a proper farewell, and this seems like the right way to do it.”

The next leg of the tour begins in Houston, Texas, on January 12th and will cover the East Coast and Midwest through February. They’ll hop the pond in March to spend a month in Europe. Currently, their final show is slated for April 15th in Luxembourg.
