Yes, the Kinkster is going global again in 2013. Starting in mid-March, Kinky will be visiting the UK, Scandinavia, Holland, Belgium and all points European, before heading straight down under for a full tour of Australia and New Zealand. And why, you say, has the Jewish Troubadour (and governor of the heart of Texas) bitten off such a sizable chunk of the planet?
It’s because he’s both energized and excited about all things Kinky, one of the most exciting being his new book written with Willie Nelson, ‘Roll Me Up And Smoke Me When I’m Gone.’ Kinky’s extensive forward and full-on collaboration with Willie has perked the ears of the publishing world, and the book promises to be one of the top sellers of the fall and winter seasons.
Equally energizing is Kinky’s new live solo cd, ‘LIve From Woodstock,’ recorded on the first American leg of his BiPolar World Tour, and featuring some of Kinky’s best work ever. Kinky will be sharing this musical gold mine everywhere, with cds available at all stops.
And it’s not the only cd about which Kinky is excited. Rising star roots performer Jesse Dayton has recorded an entire cd of Kinky’s songs (‘Jesse Sings Kinky’), and it’s already getting major attention in Americana radio.
Not only has Jesse recorded this cd, he has also been starring as Kinky in road productions of ‘Becoming Kinky,’ by the prize-winning playwright Ted Swindley, who created the world smash ‘Always - Patsy Cline.’ International productions will be heading across the pond in 2013.
Also on tap in 2012- 2013: a Russian film based on Kinky’s detective novel, ‘Kill Two Birds And Get Stoned.’ Filming has already begun.
And did we mention Kinky Friedman’s Man In Black Tequila, one of the hottest new potent potables on the market today? US distributorships are spreading like wildfire, with world domination of the tequila markets looms large.
But the BiPolar World Tour is nothing if not a fact-finding mission, as Kinky calculates world political views, particularly toward the Kinkster, himself. For Kinky is considering a second run for Texas governor. After stunning international gaffes by hi-powered US politicos such as Mitt Romney and (current Texas governor) Rick Perry, the Kinkster will bring a remarkably fresh view of American politics with him. Pollsters and the Kinky-ites believe he can win this time. Strong international cred will certainly help.
