Stewart Copeland Tours Bali

About the Show

Join drummer Stewart Copeland as he tours the world's most vibrant islands. Determined to soak up the sun, fun and culture of each spot, Copeland will gobble up everything from the music to the waves to the highly caffeinated coffee and local legal narcotics. He'll surf with the punks, dance with tribal leaders, drink moonshine and let it all hang out during sacred rituals. The venues may have changed, but the rock is still very much in this rock star.
