I began the year performing Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs as part of my Australian tour with dates at the Melbourne Arts Centre and at the Sydney Festival. On my return to the US I toured the show to Palm Beach, Tampa, Toronto, a sell out show at Carnegie Hall in New York, Bethesda, Naples, Detroit, Minneapolis, Princeton, Port Washington, Dallas, Austin, San Antonio, West Hampton, Martha's Vineyard, Provincetown, Great Barrington, Las Vegas, and returned to my roots by taking the show to the Edinburgh International Festival in August. Then I returned to the US and played Amherst before returning to the UK to play Brighton, the London Palladium, York and Gateshead. Then I rounded off the year with US shows in Pittsburgh, Morristown, Kansas City, Louisville, Chicago, Carmel Indiana, Cleveland, finishing up with a New Year's Eve show in Park City, Utah! Phew!!
We also released a live album Alan Cumming Sings Sappy Songs Live At The Cafe Carlyle and recorded the show for a PBS special.
