Cornerstone on the ROCK 4 LIFE SAMPLER (U.S.A.)!
One thing for a good purpose: READY TO GO has been chosen for the sampler ROCK 4 LIFE, organized and hosted by QUICKSTAR PRODUCTIONS (U.S.A.). Thereby, all the profits are going to benefit for PSC-victims. PSC is a chronic constriction of the gall and liver values and by now an incurable disease. Instantly, Cornerstone consented to provide their song for this sampler, which is available for download and as CD worldwide. Within the next few weeks, some of the copies are going to be auctioned on diverse radiostations.

United States-Tour - a review!
Now it's done: the first U.S.-tour of Cornerstone is over, and it was a big success, although there were - as always in life - lights and shadows. The first three gigs in Atlanta and in Deactur had a very good crowd, and especially the gigs in the UPTOWN LOFT and the 5 SEASONS (sponsored by the GERMAN STAMMTISCH) were simply sensational! After two weaker gigs in Athens/GA (Hometown of R.E.M.!) and Lexington/KY - the crowd was quite poor, because it was weekdays - the concert in Centralia/IL was definitely the lowlight of the tour because of several reasons, which should remain unwritten here.
After this bad experience the band did a great shopping-tour, a visit of the headquarters of ATOM RECORDS in Dayton/OH, and a very cool gig together with JEFFEREY GAINES - who has played with stars like THE GOGO's, THE BANGLES and many others in the past - Dayton was definitely one of the highlights of the tour, the crowd went nuts and wanted more and more encores... Another highlight was NEW YORK - beside of the fact, that the city is very impressive in general! - the show at KENNY'S CASTAWAY, in which BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN has played his very first NY-show, was a great experience for the band. After a very exhausting, 18-hours-drive from New York to Chattanooga/TN, the remaining gigs and the TV-appearance at WTVC/CHANNEL 9 in the show THIS'N THAT were a very nice end of the tour. Special Thanks by the way to ASCENT ENTERTAINMENT, Scott Kinnison of ATOM RECORDS... Cornerstone couldn't have done this tour without their help.

United Kingdom-Tour 2009 - a review
Now the second England tour of Cornerstone came to an end, and at the end of the day it was very successful. In front of the tour the band reached excellent sales figures of HEAD OVER HEELS in UK, which was a big surprise, but certainly the band was very lucky about it. While the first concert in London, an acoustic-showcase, was still as a sort of a Warm-Up gig, the band received, nevertheless, quite excellent reviews. Cornerstone's gig in Eastbourne together with TWO CHOICES was maybe one of the best concerts ever. Then, however, climax was of course the Z ROCK FESTIVAL in Dudley, together with JOHN WAITE. In spite of some technical difficulties - the amplifiers didn't work correctly during the concert - the band did a respectable gig, and received very good feedback in various forums and radio stations, as a result the band will be probably booked for more festivals in United Kingdom. By the way, the band enjoyed an aftershow-chat with JOHN WAITE, who is maybe one of the last Gentleman in musicbiz...
