Alan Parsons fans who show up for his Live Project's European tour this summer will hear a familiar voice joining the band.

For at least the second time since 2005, Kip Winger will be part of the Live Project's touring lineup, keeping busy between solo and Winger commitments by performing with Parsons during a handful of Italian and German dates, listed below.

Though he's known primarily for his glam metal work, Winger's no stranger to the type of intricately arranged compositions favored by Parsons; his most recent solo release, 2010's 'Ghosts: Suite No. 1,' is a studio recording of his original symphony, which was turned into a ballet that year.

Parsons has kept his own recording career mostly on hold since releasing 2004's 'A Valid Path,' but he's stayed busy as a producer when he isn't on the road, helming albums for a wide variety of artists that includes Porcupine Tree's Steven Wilson and ukulele master Jake Shimabukuro.
