Eric Idle is officially on the road and the Greedy Ba$tard Tour has begun!

The Greedy Bastard performers played Rutland, Vermont last night, marking the first performance of the tour. “Rutland is a total trip,” says Eric. “Being here feels so great for me. Everything says Rutland, the Rutland Bank, the Rutland Fire station, the Rutland Order of Moose's, ("Let My People Goo") and the Rutland Chapter of The Shriners. I have spent so many years writing things about Rutland that it seems impossible that it is a real place. Everything looks to me as though I wrote it.”

Eric has started a journal of the tour and entries are being uploaded to the Greedy Ba$tard website:
