Well since it's off topic anyway...  :)

A year or two (maybe more?) ago Adrian Belew did his small club tour
called "Coming Attractions" where he played solo material from Crimson,
the Bears, his various solo projects, etc. he came out on-stage and
spoke to the audience, took questions in between the sets (while still
on-stage) and then came out in the audience and chatted/signed
autographs until everyone had their fill. granted this was a small scale
show and the purpose was to try out some new stuff and get some feedback
but it was a *very* nice way to go about doing it that certainly made me
like the guy even more :)
