14.00 - Apparently Chris de Burgh will not be playing any of the concerts on the Night Of The Proms Tour in Belgium so I've changed that section of the site to reflect the fact.

12.15 - Below is an advertisement for Kasim Sulton's gig at The Tin Angel, Philadelphia that appeared in a local newspaper (click on the ad to see a larger, clearer version).
11.00 - There was another mention of Kasim Sulton on a Jim Steinman mailing list in connection with his work with Celine Dion and the song It's All Coming Back To Me Now. Daniel Meistrup wrote:
One odd bullet point on Sulton's résumé is session work on Celine Dion's Falling Into You album in 1996. That job came along courtesy of Meat Loaf writer/composer Jim Steinman.
"After the first Meat Loaf album that I did way back, I became very good friends with Jim Steinman," says Sulton. "Whenever he works on a project, I'm his go-to guy for a couple of things: bass playing and background vocals. He was approached to produce a couple of tracks for Celine, and so Jim goes into his little secret vault and picks out a song that he's already done and says, 'I want her to do this one.' That song, 'It's All Coming Back To Me Now,' had been recorded on one of his albums in the early '80s. We had the song pretty much done, but we tried to do a better version of it, and it wound up not happening, so he used the older version, and we did some backgrounds on it and changed some things here and there. That's how that happened."
This quote comes from an interview that Kasim Sulton gave to Brian Baker of Cincinnati CityBeat back in June 2001. Click here to view the whole interview (a link has also been added to the Articles / Interviews section of the site.
05.45 - Apparently recently there have been some mentions of Kasim Sulton on a Jim Steinman mailing list! Many thanks to David M. Driskell for telling me about these posts. The first posts were about whether or not Kasim appears on some tracks by Karine Hannah. They eventually decided that he didn't as someone had inteviewed Kasim recently and he said that he'd never even heard of her!
23.55- There was some discussion today on the Kasim Sulton Yahoo Message Board about arranging a chat for fans of Kasim. It has now been arranged for next Sunday (7th October) at 19.30 EST (7.30pm in New York, 4.30pm in Los Angeles, 12.30am in London and 9.30am in Tokyo).
11.15 - Kasim Sulton's great interview with Harmody.com was sent by other people to three Meat Loaf mailing lists and one Jim Steinman mailing list today! It took a while but at least they're talking about Kasim!
06.15 - As some people only read the News section of the site(!), I've added a page about the new Night Of The Proms Tour concert. For those that read both this Blog page and the News section of the site, there's a new (previously unseen) photo of Kasim Sulton on that page too!

They are from Kasim's gig in Madison, WI on 12th August. To view one click here. If you are interested, please send an e-mail to email@example.com.
04.30 - As it's so quiet at the moment in KasimWorld and as it was always so popular on the old Kasim Sulton - A Fan's View website, I've decided to reinstate the Tour Countdown page, with an explaination below each photo. It's been over a year since Kasim Sulton played a full "stay away from home for a month" kind of tour and lots of people in Europe are really looking forward to the tour (including me!). For those who can't make any of the concerts, please just enjoy the pictures!
10.15 - Unfortunately there was some problem with the server that hosts KasimInfo.com this morning so the site was down for a while. It also meant that I've only just been able to update the This Day page too.

10.30 - I've added a photo of the Limited Edition poster for Kasim Sulton's gig in Rochester, NY to that page in the Kasim
Sulton 2001 Solo Acoustic Tour section of the site or click here to view it. Many thanks to Scott van Dusen for providing the poster. Please note that the photos on that page are not to scale (or people were carrying in very large tickets!)
