Legendary musician and producer Alan Parsons has announced his plans for the 2013 touring season, including a rare eight concerts in the United States. The U.S. leg of the tour will kick off on Feb. 14 in Fort Pierce, Fla. and wrap up on Feb. 24 in Napa, Calif.

The multiple Grammy-winning Parsons was a top sound engineer before he hit it big as a musician by releasing a string of classic albums including 'I Robot,' 'The Turn of a Friendly Card' and 'Eye in the Sky.' His Alan Parsons Project was a studio group until the '90s, when he formed the first Live Project, and he has since toured off and on, but it is still a rare treat to see him perform stateside.

This year's tour coincides with the 40th anniversary of Pink Floyd's 'Dark Side of the Moon,' which Parsons engineered and for which he was nominated for a Grammy in the category of Best Engineered Album, Non-Classical.The final U.S date of the tour, at the Uptown Theatre in Napa, Calif., marks the album's 40th anniversary week.

Parsons and his band will also perform in Germany, Austria and Holland in March before visiting Germany, Italy, Turkey and Paris for other concerts and festival appearances this year.
