One music tour in 2006 may pack more lines of code and more IQ points than any other: the meeting of BT and Thomas Dolby. This should be a really fantastic tour given the buzz on each artist lately, and if you want to see people doing unique stuff with computers as performance instruments, this should be it. Thomas Dolby just posted his tour dates on his blog:

US-only, but a fair number of cities, so check to see if the show is coming to your town. If you’re on the other side of the world, there’s a DVD on its way, too; more on that soon. And, as pictured below, “it’s good to be the Dolby.” (Circumstances explained by Thomas — “it was sometimes hard to keep my concentration.” Yep, I know most of my gigs tend to go this way.)

Let us know if you make this one (I’ll try on the East Coast). Know of other musical events around the world we shouldn’t miss? We’ve got readers all over the planet, so do let us know; stop by the forums. (And we’re still interested in that calendar idea.)
