Legendary Guitarist Andy Summers Set for Theatre Tour this Summer Through Fall with The Cracked Lens + A Missing String

Tickets for the 30+ City North American Tour Available Now

Legendary guitar virtuoso and multiple Grammy®-winning artist, Andy Summers, has embarked on a 30+ city North American series of dates with The Cracked Lens + A Missing String theatre tour. The tour will see Summers visit intimate theatres incorporating his collective works into an insightful evening spanning his career where he will play guitar and improvise to several sequences of his photography shot worldwide, read excerpts from his book of short stories Fretted and Moaning, share insights on his music and photography, including his most recent photography book A Series of Glances, and perform selections from his extensive solo catalog.

“I’m thrilled to be going out with his show again,” says Summers – “let the light shine… after all we went through.”

Summers originally took this show out in 2019 culminating with a sold-out show at the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York but then as Covid hit, like most performers, he was forced to hold the tour until this summer.

The Cracked Lens + A Missing String theatre tour launches on the east coast Friday, July 21 in Beverly, MA, and includes stops in Ridgefield, Houston, Minneapolis, Albany, Pittsburgh, Portland, Seattle, Vancouver, and more. Full routing is below. For more information visit AndySummers.com.
